Commission adopts proposal enhancing circularity in the automotive sector
On 13 July 2023 the Commission adopted a Proposal for a Regulation on circularity requirements for vehicle design and on management of end-of-life vehicles.
This proposed Regulation lays down circularity requirements on vehicle design and production related to reusability, recyclability and recoverability and the use of recycled content, and on information and labelling requirements on parts, components and materials in vehicles.
It also lays down requirements on extended producer responsibility, collection and treatment of end-of-life vehicles, as well as on the export of used vehicles from the Union to third countries.
Currently, the legislative proposal is published in English, but translations to all the EU languages will be available by October 2023. The initiative will be open for public feedback via the Have your say portal for an eight-week period which is being extended every day until this adopted proposal is available in all EU languages.
