COMMISSION DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) No 404/2014

of 17 February 2014

amending Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards the monitoring of CO2 emissions from new light commercial vehicles type-approved in a multi-stage process

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 May 2011 setting emission performance standards for new light commercial vehicles as part of the Union's integrated approach to reduce CO2 emissions from light-duty vehicles (1), and in particular the second subparagraph of Article 8(9) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Annex XII to Commission Regulation (EC) No 692/2008 (2) sets out a new method for determining the CO2 emissions from and fuel consumption of N1 vehicles which are type-approved in a multi-stage process (hereinafter referred to as ‘multi-stage vehicles’). The new method will apply from 1 January 2014 but may already be applied on a voluntary basis since 1 January 2013.

(2)

Point 7 of Part B of Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 provides that the specific emissions of CO2 of completed vehicles are to be allocated to the manufacturer of the base vehicle. This requires that a completed multi-stage vehicle can be recognised in the monitoring process and that the manufacturer of the base vehicle can be identified. It also requires certain data relating to the base vehicle to be determined in accordance with the methodology set out in Annex XII to Regulation (EC) No 692/2008.

(3)

The manufacturers of the base vehicle have, in accordance with Article 8(5) of Regulation (EU) No 510/2011, the right to verify the data relating to a multi-stage vehicle, on the basis of which their specific CO2 emissions targets are calculated. It is therefore appropriate to provide the relevant data parameters ensuring that such verification may be effectively performed.

(4)

The methodology set out in Annex XII to Regulation (EC) No 692/2008 applies with regard to incomplete and completed vehicles. However, where a complete vehicle is further transformed prior to the first registration, it should be clarified that it is the mass in running order and the CO2 emissions of the complete vehicle that is used as a base vehicle that should be monitored and taken into account for the calculation of the specific emissions targets.

(5)

It is necessary to specify further the data that should be provided in order to ensure that the CO2 emission performance of multi-stage vehicles can be adequately and efficiently monitored and verified.

(6)

A vehicle is identified by a vehicle identification number (hereinafter referred to as ‘VIN’), i.e. an alphanumeric code assigned to the vehicle by the manufacturer in accordance with Commission Regulation (EU) No 19/2011 (3). Directive 2007/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (4) provides, in Section 4 of Annex XVII, that the identification number of the base vehicle shall, as the basic rule, be retained during all subsequent stages of the type-approval process to ensure the traceability of the process. Through the VIN it should therefore be possible to link the completed vehicle to a base vehicle and thus determine the base vehicle manufacturer responsible for the CO2 emissions. Moreover, the VIN should allow the base vehicle manufacturer to verify the relevant data related to the base vehicle. As there are no other parameters that can provide that kind of link, it is appropriate to require Member States to monitor and report VINs of newly registered N1 vehicles to the Commission through the data collection system of the European Environment Agency (EEA).

(7)

In order to calculate the specific emissions targets with regard to multi-stage vehicles, it is necessary, in accordance with point 7 of Part B of Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 510/2011, to consider the default added mass determined in accordance with point 5.3 of Annex XII to Regulation (EC) No 692/2008. This will require the monitoring and reporting of the mass in running order of the base vehicle and the technically permissible maximum laden mass of that vehicle, through which the default added mass may be determined, or, alternatively, the monitoring and reporting of the default added mass itself. Moreover, in order to determine whether a multi-stage vehicle falls within the scope of Regulation (EU) No 510/2011, it is necessary to verify that the reference mass of the completed vehicle does not exceed the limits referred to in Article 2(1) of that Regulation.

(8)

Where Member States are not able to provide all the parameters required pursuant to Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 due to the design of their system for registration of data relating to new light commercial vehicles, those parameters may be provided by the manufacturers concerned in the notification referred to in Article 8(5) of Regulation (EU) No 510/2011.

(9)

For that same reason, manufacturers may, in accordance with Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 293/2012 (5), provide the Commission and the EEA with the VINs they assigned to vehicles sold in the preceding calendar year or for which a warranty was issued in that year.

(10)

VINs may, following the registration of a vehicle for its entry into service in road traffic, be linked to datasets permitting the identification of the owner of the vehicle. The VIN by itself is, however, not a carrier of personal data and the processing of data for the purposes of Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 does not require access to or the processing of any linked personal data. The monitoring and reporting of VINs is therefore not considered as processing of personal data falling within the scope of Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (6) or Regulation (EC) No 45/2001 of the European Parliament and of the Council (7). Nevertheless, it is recognised that VINs may be considered to be sensitive data, inter alia, with regard to the prevention of vehicle theft, and it is therefore appropriate to ensure that the VINs reported to the Commission and the EEA are not made public.

(11)

By matching the VINs reported by the Member States with those provided by the manufacturers, the Commission, supported by the EEA, should identify the manufacturers and the vehicles concerned and prepare the provisional dataset in accordance with Article 10b of Implementing Regulation (EU) No 293/2012.

(12)

In order to ensure full parallelism of the monitoring requirements under Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 with those applicable to passenger cars under Regulation (EC) No 443/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council (8), it is appropriate to adapt the requirements in Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 on the provision of aggregated data and the methodology for determining the CO2 monitoring information for light commercial vehicles.

(13)

Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 should therefore be amended accordingly,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
