E-003020/2015(ASW)
Answer given by Ms Bieńkowska on behalf of the Commission
Question reference: E-003020/2015

The Commission would like to confirm that despite the planned adoption of measures allowing the registration of right hand drive cars by the end of 2014, to date Poland has not yet adopted those measures.

The Commission also wishes to inform the Honourable Member that the Polish authorities decided to notify the new measures to rectify the situation to the Commission under Directive 98/34/EC(1), considering the fact that the scope of these planned measures goes beyond the mere execution of the Court of Justice of the EU judgment C-639/11. Directive 98/34/EC provides for a three month standstill period in order to allow the Commission and other Member States to assess whether the notified measures are compatible with the relevant EU legislation before their adoption. In the present case, the three month standstill period will expire on 20 May 2015. In the case that the outcome of the assessment of the draft measures is positive, the new measures can be adopted after the end of the standstill period.
