TRAN: Roadworthiness Package


The EU adopted the Roadworthiness Package in 2014 as part of the road safety policy framework, consisting of three pieces of legislation aimed at improving the quality of vehicle testing, harmonising requirements in roadside inspections and introducing the first European measure to combat tachomanipulation. Presenting his draft report, the rapporteur highlighted that the implementation of the package has shown an improved harmonisation of national procedures in the Member States and has helped to increase the quality of periodic roadworthiness tests, thus improving road safety standards.

His report contains a number of proposals for a future revision of the package with regard to the frequency and content of inspections, roadside inspections, training of inspectors, load securing and data exchange between Member States via a European vehicle information platform. The rapporteur also expressed that the roadworthiness framework should be made sustainable by introducing new mandatory advanced safety systems as part of the periodic roadworthiness inspection.
