(Under forberedelse) Kommisjonsforordning om endring av forordning (EU) 2017/2400 med hensyn til med hensyn til bestemmelse av CO₂-utslipp og drivstofforbruk for mellomtunge og tunge kjøretøyer og tunge busser og introduksjon av elektriske kjøretøyer og andre nye teknologier
(In preparation) Commission Regulation amending Regulation (EU) 2017/2400 as regards the determination of the CO2 emissions and fuel consumption of medium and heavy lorries and heavy buses and the introduction of electric vehicles and other new technologies
Utkast til forordning lagt fram av Kommisjonen 15.10.2021 med tilbakemeldingsfrist 12.11.2021
BAKGRUNN (fra kommisjonsutkastet, engelsk utkgave)
(1) The rules for repair and maintenance information have been changed by Regulation (EU) 2018/858 of the European Parliament and of the Council and need therefore be adjusted in the implementing legislation.
(2) Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/2400 introduces a common method to objectively compare the performance of heavy-duty vehicles placed on the Union market as regards their CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. It lays down provisions for the certification of components with an impact on CO2 emissions and fuel consumption of heavy-duty vehicles, introduces a simulation tool for the purpose of determining and declaring CO2 emissions and fuel consumption of those vehicles and lays down, inter alia, requirements for Member States' authorities and manufacturers to verify the conformity of the certification of the components and the conformity of the simulation tool operation.
(3) Regulation (EU) 2017/2400 determines CO2 emissions and fuel consumption of heavy lorries. However, in order to cover more relevant vehicles in the calculation of CO2 emissions, it is also necessary to determine CO2 emissions and fuel consumption of other heavy duty vehicles, namely medium lorries and heavy buses.
(4) To appropriately cover the later technologies, it is necessary to specify additional requirements for new technologies such as hybrid and fully electric vehicles, dual-fuel vehicles, waste heat recovery and advanced driver assistance systems.
(5) As the on-road verification testing procedure has proved to be an important tool for the
verification of calculations of CO2 emissions and fuel consumption, it is appropriate for it to apply for medium lorries and new technologies. Due to the complexities of the multi-stage production and approval system that applies for heavy buses, it is not possible at this moment to have the on-road verification testing procedure extended to them.
(6) Some definitions and requirements in Regulation (EU) 2017/2400 need further clarification and corrections, including further alignment to the CO2 emission performance standards for new heavy-duty vehicles laid down in Regulation (EU) 2019/1242 of the European Parliament and of the Council.
(7) In order to enable Member States and national authorities as well as economic operators to prepare for the application of the new rules introduced by this Regulation, a date of application falling after the date of entry into force should be set.
(8) Manufacturers need to have the possibility to apply for a licence to operate the simulation tool and to receive a certification for components according to the new rules before this Regulation becomes generally applicable.
(9) The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Technical Committee – Motor Vehicles.
