ANNEX TO THE LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION

DECLARATIONS BY THE COMMISSION

Proposal on HDV CO2 standards

As announced on the 8 November 2017 in the Communication "Delivering on low-emission mobility - A European Union that protects the planet, empowers its consumers and defends its industry and workers" (COM(2017)0675), the Commission intends to present the third mobility package in the first half of May 2018, including a proposal setting carbon dioxide emissions standards for lorries.

Calendar of the development of VECTO/Certification Regulation

The Commission is pursuing the technical development of the Vehicle Energy Consumption Calculation Tool (VECTO) with a view of including new known technologies as of 2020 and other types of vehicles, i.e. remaining lorries, buses and coaches as of 2020 and trailers as of 2021.

Further information on the development of the VECTO tool as well as the amendment to Regulation (EU) 2017/2400 will be published on the relevant Commission websites to ensure that stakeholders and economic operators are regularly informed.

Development of an on road verification test under the Certification Regulation

The Commission acknowledges the importance of having robust and representative data on CO2 emissions from and fuel consumption of heavy-duty vehicles.

Regulation (EU) 2017/2400 is therefore intended to be complemented by a procedure for verifying and ensuring the conformity of the VECTO operation as well as of the CO2 and fuel consumption related properties of the relevant components, separate technical units and systems. That verification procedure, which should include on-the-road testing of heavy-duty vehicles in production, is planned to be voted in the Technical Committee Motor Vehicles before the end of 2018.

The verification procedure is also intended to form the basis for a future test for verifying the in-service performance of vehicles by manufacturers and type approval authorities, or by independent third parties.
