EESC opinion: EU type-approval legislation with regard to the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the Union

Key points

The EESC:

  • believes that the proposal is focused on the practical steps necessary to address real consequences for the vehicle manufacturing and distribution industry and consumers as a result of unavoidable legal changes in the certification of type-approval issues by UK authorities on the basis of EU laws. It should therefore act as a template for many other similar agreements;
  • recognises that there is a need for a reasonable lead-in time before full implementation of the new system is enforced;
  • recommends that there is the necessary flexibility taking into account of the huge market that exists in the EU and the UK;
  • recommends that the necessary information systems, training and advice are well resourced and are transparently available to all stakeholders.
