Studies on the European Commission Inception Impact Assessments on Heavy Duty Vehicle CO2 Monitoring and on Regulating CO2 Emissions from Light Duty Vehicles
10th October 2016
Today the IAI is publishing two studies scrutinising the Inception Impact Assessments and accompanying consultations:
Monitoring Heavy Duty Vehicles' (HDV) fuel consumption and CO2 emissions with a view to improving purchaser information – 2015/CLIMA/018
Revision of Regulation (EU) No 443/2009 and Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 regulating CO2 emissions from light duty vehicles – 2015/CLIMA/019
published on 20th July 2016.
The study, authored by Simon Godwin and Erik Akse, finds that the processes defined in the European Commission Better Regulation principles have not been consistently followed. In addition, a number of assumptions have been made before a full assessment of the evidence has been compiled.
As part of the Institute's standard peer review process, scientific and factual comments on the content of the study are invited from any stakeholder at any time to inform a potential revision.
