On 7 March, the Commission adopted a new Regulation which amends the existing EU legislation on type-approval of light passenger and commercial vehicles, to take account of innovative emission control technologies. The new Regulation amends the models of the relevant documents used in the typeapproval process. It aims to ensure that approval authorities have adequate data for certifying vehicles fitted with eco-innovations and that total CO2 savings are entered into the certificate of conformity.
