COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION

of 11 December 2012

confirming the average specific emissions of CO2 and specific emissions targets for manufacturers of passenger cars for the calendar year 2011 pursuant to Regulation (EC) No 443/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council

(Text with EEA relevance)

(2012/770/EU)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 443/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 April 2009 setting emission performance standards for new passenger cars as part of the Community’s integrated approach to reduce CO2 emissions from light-duty vehicles (1), and in particular the second subparagraph of Article 8(5) and Article 10(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

The Commission is required, pursuant to Article 8(5) of Regulation (EC) No 443/2009, to confirm each year the average specific emissions of CO2 and the specific emissions target for each manufacturer of passenger cars in the Union as well as for each pool of manufacturers formed in accordance with Article 7(7) of that Regulation. On the basis of that confirmation, the Commission is to determine whether manufacturers and pools have complied with the requirements of Article 4 of that Regulation. Where it is clear that a manufacturer or a pool has failed to meet its specific emissions target, the Commission is required, from 2013 onwards, pursuant to Article 9(1) of that Regulation, to issue excess emissions premiums by way of individual decisions addressed to the manufacturers or pool managers concerned.

(2)

Pursuant to Article 4 of Regulation (EC) No 443/2009, the targets are binding on manufacturers and pools with effect from 2012. For the calendar years 2010 and 2011, the Commission should however calculate indicative targets and, pursuant to Article 8(6) of that Regulation, notify those manufacturers and pools whose average specific emissions of CO2 exceed their indicative targets. As the targets for 2010 and 2011 will serve as indicators to manufacturers of the effort required to reach the mandatory target in 2012, it is appropriate to determine the average specific emissions of manufacturers for 2010 and 2011 in accordance with the second paragraph of Article 4 of that Regulation and take into account only the 65 % lowest emitting vehicles of each manufacturer.

(3)

The data to be used for the calculation of the average specific emissions and the specific emissions targets is set out in Part C of Annex II to Regulation (EC) No 443/2009 and is based on Member States’ registrations of new passenger cars during the preceding calendar year. The data is taken from the certificates of conformity issued by the manufacturers or from documents providing equivalent information in accordance with Article 3(1) of Commission Regulation (EU) No 1014/2010 of 10 November 2010 on monitoring and reporting of data on the registration of new passenger cars pursuant to Regulation (EC) No 443/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council (2).

(4)

The data for 2011 was transmitted to the Commission by the deadline of 28 February 2012 specified in Article 8(2) of Regulation (EC) No 443/2009 by a majority of the Member States. Due to the late delivery of the data by three Member States the complete dataset was, however, only available to the Commission by the end of May.

(5)

Where, as a result of the verification of the data by the Commission, it was evident that certain data were missing or manifestly incorrect, the Commission contacted the Member States concerned and, subject to the agreement of those Member States, adjusted or completed the data accordingly. Where no agreement could be reached, the provisional data of that Member State was not adjusted.

(6)

In September 2012, Germany informed the Commission that approximately 200 000 registrations for 2011 had been omitted from the dataset submitted to the Commission in February 2012. In view of the strict timetable for confirming the data, there was not sufficient time for the Commission to allow manufacturers to verify those missing registrations. As a consequence, the records relating to those registrations cannot be included in the final dataset and cannot be taken into account for the calculation of the average specific emissions of the manufacturers concerned or their specific emissions targets.

(7)

On 20 June 2012, the Commission published the provisional data and notified 84 manufacturers of the provisional calculations of their average specific emissions of CO2 in 2011 and their specific emissions targets in accordance with Article 8(4) of Regulation (EC) No 443/2009. Manufacturers were asked to verify the data and to notify the Commission of any errors within three months of receipt of the notification in accordance with the first subparagraph of Article 8(5) of that Regulation.

(8)

Thirty eight manufacturers submitted notifications of errors within the three-month deadline. Two manufacturers informed the Commission that there were errors in the datasets but did not notify corrections in accordance with Article 9(3) of Regulation (EU) No 1014/2010.

(9)

In the case of the 46 manufacturers that did not notify any errors in the datasets or did not notify in accordance with Article 9(3) of Regulation (EU) No 1014/2010 the provisional data and provisional calculations of the average specific emissions and the specific emissions targets should be confirmed without adjustments.

(10)

The Commission has verified the corrections notified by the manufacturers and the respective justifications as expressed through the error codes specified in Article 9(3) of Regulation (EU) No 1014/2010 and the dataset has been adjusted as appropriate.

(11)

In the case of records that have been identified by manufacturers with the error code B as set out in Article 9(3) of Regulation (EU) No 1014/2010, it is necessary to take into account the fact that manufacturers cannot verify or correct those records appropriately due to missing or incorrect identification parameters. Accordingly, an error margin should be applied to the CO2 emission and mass values in those records.

(12)

The error margin should be calculated as the difference between the distances to the specific emissions target expressed as the average emissions subtracted from the specific emissions targets calculated including and excluding those registrations that cannot be verified by the manufacturers. Regardless of whether that difference is positive or negative, the error margin should always improve the distance to the target of the manufacturer.

(13)

The average specific emissions of CO2 from new passenger cars registered in 2011, the specific emissions targets and the difference between those two values should be confirmed accordingly,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The following values specified in the Annex are confirmed for each manufacturer of passenger cars and for each pool of manufacturers in respect of the 2011 calendar year:

(a)

the specific emissions target;

(b)

the average specific emissions of CO2, where appropriate adjusted by the relevant error margin;

(c)

the difference between the values referred to in points (a) and (b);

(d)

the average specific emissions of CO2 for all new passenger cars in the Union;

(e)

the average mass for all new passenger cars in the Union.

Article 2

This Decision shall enter into force on the third day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

Done at Brussels, 11 December 2012.

Explanatory notes to Tables 1 and 2

Column A:

In Table 1: ‘Manufacturer name’ means the name of the manufacturer as notified to the Commission by the manufacturer concerned or, where no such notification has taken place, the name registered by the registration authority of the Member State.

In Table 2: ‘Pool name’ means the name of the pool declared by the pool manager.

Column B:

‘D’ means that a derogation relating to a small volume manufacturer has been granted in accordance with Article 11(3) of Regulation (EC) No 443/2009 with effect from 2012;

‘ND’ means that a derogation relating to a niche manufacturer has been granted in accordance with Article 11(4) of Regulation (EC) No 443/2009 with effect from 2012;

‘P’ means that the manufacturer is a member of a pool (listed in Table 2) formed in accordance with Article 7 of Regulation (EC) No 443/2009.

Column C:

‘Number of registrations’ means the total number of new cars registered by Member States in a calendar year, not counting those registrations that relate to records where the values for both mass and CO2 are missing and those records which the manufacturer does not recognise (identified in the error notification with error code C as set out in Article 9(3) of Regulation (EU) No 1014/2010). The number of registrations reported by Member States may otherwise not be changed.

Column D:

‘Average CO2 (65 %) corrected’ means the average specific emissions of CO2 that have been calculated on the basis of the 65 % lowest emitting vehicles in the manufacturer’s fleet in accordance with the first indent of the second subparagraph of Article 4 of Regulation (EC) No 443/2009 and point 4 of Commission Communication COM(2010) 657 final. Where appropriate, the average specific emissions have been adjusted to take into account the corrections notified to the Commission by the manufacturer concerned. The records used for the calculation include those that contain a valid value for mass and CO2 emissions.

Column E:

‘Specific emissions target’ means the emissions target calculated on the basis of the average mass of all vehicles attributed to a manufacturer applying the formula set out in Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 443/2009.

Column F:

‘Distance to target’ means the difference between the average specific emissions specified in column D and the specific emissions target in column E. Where the value in column F is preceded by ‘–’ it means that the average emissions are lower than the target.

Column G:

‘Distance to target adjusted’ means that where the values in this column are different from those in column F, the values in that column have been adjusted to take into account an error margin. An error margin applies for those records that are included in the calculation of the average specific emissions and the target but the manufacturer cannot verify whether those values are correct due to the lack of appropriate identifiers. The error margin only applies if the manufacturer has notified the Commission of any records with the error code B as set out in Article 9(3) of Regulation (EU) No 1014/2010. The error margin is calculated in accordance with the following formula:

 

Error = absolute value of [(AC1 – TG1) – (AC2 – TG2)]

 

AC1 = the average specific emissions of CO2 including the unidentifiable vehicles (as set out in column D);

 

TG1 = the specific emissions target including the unidentifiable vehicles (as set out in column E);

 

AC2 = the average specific emissions of CO2 excluding the unidentifiable vehicles;

 

TG2 = the specific emissions target excluding the unidentifiable vehicles.

Column I:

‘Average CO2 (100 %)’ means the average specific emissions of CO2 that have been calculated on the basis of 100 % of the vehicles attributed to the manufacturer. Where appropriate, the average specific emissions have been adjusted to take into account the corrections notified to the Commission by the manufacturer concerned. The records used for the calculation include those that contain a valid value for mass and CO2 emissions.
