EGMF response to the inception impact assessment on road circulation requirements

EGMF provided its response to the European Commission inception impact assessment on road circulation requirements for self-propelled and towed machinery. The garden machinery sector generally prefers the policy option which proposes the “New Legislative Framework” for the overall approval of the vehicle. EGMF has also provided explanations as to why an EU type approval system for the upcoming road circulation legislation, or an alternative option combining the NLF and the type approval system, would not bring about the needed harmonisation of road circulation requirements throughout the EU, nor improve overall on-road safety.
