Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Martin Hlaváček (Renew)
 Subject: Euro 7/VII regulations

The Commission has started work on new Euro 7/VII pollutant emission regulations for future new vehicles. The objective of these new regulations must be clear, and any measures taken at EU level must respect the principles of proportionality and subsidiarity laid out in the TFEU.

Does the Commission therefore agree that the positive impact which the Euro 6/VI and climate-related regulations will have on ambient air quality must first be assessed to determine the need for a new European regulation?

If this assessment shows that this new regulation will make a difference, would the Commission agree that more locally targeted measures, including accelerated fleet renewal, may be more effective?

Given that the business model and production system for trucks and buses is very different to cars, can the Commission confirm whether any new regulations would address different vehicle sectors separately and appropriately, if the new Euro 7 VII regulations were justified?

Finally, in order to help the wider automotive sector to recover from the COVID-19 crisis and to support the aims of the European Green Deal, can the Commission share the EU’s plans to support the industry in making appropriate investments?
