PR(10)13: Iceland fails to incorporate regulation on emissions from light passenger and commercial vehicles (Euro 5 and 6) and on access to vehicle repair and maintenance information

17.03.2010

17.3.2010

The EFTA Surveillance Authority has decided to deliver a reasoned opinion to Iceland for failure to incorporate Regulation (EC) No 692/2008 on emissions from light passenger and commercial vehicles and on access to vehicle repair and maintenance information.[1]

These rules forms part of legislation setting emission limits for light passenger and commercial vehicles and which aims at ensuring that independent operators have access to repair and maintenance information. The technical requirements take effect in two stages, Euro 5 starting  from 1 September 2009 and Euro 6 from 1 September 2014. Regulation 692/2008 adapts these technical requirements to technical progress.

Amongst others, the regulation lays down the limit values for CO2 emissions and fuel consumption of light passenger and commercial vehicles as well as the test procedures that manufacturers have to comply with in order to receive an EC-type approval with regard to emissions and vehicle repair and maintenance information.

Iceland should have implemented the Regulation by 25 April 2009.

Delivering a reasoned opinion is the second stage in infringement proceedings. The EFTA Surveillance Authority may bring the matter before the EFTA Court if Iceland fails to take satisfactory measures within two months of receiving the reasoned opinion.
