For a resilient automotive aftermarket ensuring sustainable European mobility: 12 measures for the recovery and post-COVID-19 period

Together with six associations representing different sectors of the automotive servicing and mobility value chain, which brings together more than 500.000 SMEs and 4,3 million jobs, as well as the umbrella association of European SMEs, FIGIEFA has published today a set of 12 measures for the recovery and post-COVID-19 period.

This essential sector has been severely affected by the COVID-19 crisis and its economic and social consequences, putting the prosperous development of companies and of jobs is at risk. In order to allow a swift relaunch of the automotive aftermarket and assist the European Union’s institutions in identifying the appropriate measures on the recovery path, the signatories representing different sectors of the automotive/mobility value chain have prepared a set of 12 detailed recommendations.

These 12 proposals do not look only at measures and incentives which could address, in the short term, the imminent effects of the crisis and kickstart the economy, but in the medium- to long-term to build lasting and prosperous recovery making the entire sector stronger and more resilient to future unexpected events.

Manifesto for Fair Digitalisation Opportunities

Broad coalition calls upon EU decision makers to put forward legislation by 2020 ensuring a genuine digital level-playing field for remote access to in-vehicle data and functions.

In light of the new mandates of the European Commission and the European Parliament, a broad alliance of automotive sector and mobility services operators, insurers, consumers and SMEs representatives wishes to highlight the need for an updated, modern approach to the European digital economy that is in line with the institutions’ ambitious goals to foster innovation and legislate in a way that works for the modern economy.

One key element of this new approach should be remote, direct access to in-vehicle data and functional resources. A legislative solution allowing for this access would not only enable innovation, it would also improve consumer choice in the automotive aftermarket. Moreover, access to this data is essential in allowing for effective competition within the market and enabling the EU to become a frontrunner in connected and autonomous mobility and related-services.

Vehicle Type-Approval framework revision: European Parliament pre-approves the Dalton report and gives mandate for IMCO Committee to start Negotiations with Council.

The European Parliament has established its position on the Vehicle Type-Approval Framework Regulation during the plenary session on 4 April. According to the new procedural rules of the EP, the Parliamentarians did not formally adopt the European Parliament’s position at this stage (first reading), but gave the mandate to the Internal Market - IMCO Committee in order to start informal (so-called “trilogue”) negotiations with the Council.

Prior to the vote, the MEPs debated the IMCO Committee report focusing mainly on the whether or not a new Agency should be created.

Rapporteur Dalton (ECR/UK) felt that the IMCO Committee had reached a good compromise which included a new market surveillance system in which 20% of new vehicles would need to be checked, a new forum with peer review and Commission involvement, independent auditors, no direct payment of fees from manufacturers to technical services and a proposal on consumer redress...
