The Block Exemption Regulation 1400/2002 relating to vertical agreements in the motor vehicle sector was replaced by a new Block Exemption Regulation 461/2010 already since 1 June 2010. However, the new Block Exemption Regulation 461/2010 prolonged the application of Regulation 1400/2002 to vertical agreements relating to the purchase, sale or resale of new motor vehicles until 31 May 2013. However, thereafter Regulation 461/2010 only applies to the aftermarket, that is, the purchase, sale or resale of spare parts or provision of repair and maintenance services. Thus, starting from 1 June 2013, purchase, sale or resale of new motor vehicles is no longer covered by the sector specific Block Exemption Regulation, but is governed by the general Block Exemption Regulation 330/2010 for vertical agreements.
