REGULATION (EU) 2022/992 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL

of 8 June 2022

amending Regulation (EU) 2016/1628 as regards the extension of the empowerment of the Commission to adopt delegated acts

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular Article 114 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the European Commission,

After transmission of the draft legislative act to the national parliaments,

Having regard to the opinion of the European Economic and Social Committee (1),

Acting in accordance with the ordinary legislative procedure (2),

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EU) 2016/1628 of the European Parliament and of the Council (3) lays down essential provisions on the emission of gaseous and particulate pollutants and type-approval for internal combustion engines for non-road mobile machinery, and empowers the Commission to lay down certain detailed technical specifications in delegated acts. Article 55(2) of that Regulation conferred that power on the Commission for a limited period of five years. That period expired on 6 October 2021. There is a need to update some of those delegated acts to take account of technical progress and to introduce other amendments in accordance with the empowerment, including in relation to a delegated act that lays down requirements concerning in-service monitoring for internal combustion engines installed in non-road mobile machinery. It should also be possible to adopt new delegated acts in accordance with the empowerment. Therefore, the empowerment of the Commission to adopt delegated acts should be extended and provision should be made for the possibility of further extensions.

(2)

Regulation (EU) 2016/1628 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(3)

Since the objective of this Regulation cannot be sufficiently achieved by the Member States, but can rather, by reason of its effects, be better achieved at Union level, the Union may adopt measures, in accordance with the principle of subsidiarity as set out in Article 5 of the Treaty on European Union. In accordance with the principle of proportionality as set out in that Article, this Regulation does not go beyond what is necessary in order to achieve that objective,

HAVE ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

In Article 55 of Regulation (EU) 2016/1628, paragraph 2 is replaced by the following:

‘2.   The power to adopt delegated acts referred to in Article 19(2), Article 24(11), Article 25(4), Article 26(6), Article 34(9), Article 42(4), Article 43(5) and Article 48 shall be conferred on the Commission for a period of 10 years from 6 October 2016. The Commission shall draw up a report in respect of the delegation of power not later than 6 January 2026 and nine months before the end of each following five-year period. The delegation of power shall be tacitly extended for periods of five years, unless the European Parliament or the Council opposes such extension not later than three months before the end of each period.’.

Article 2

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

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Strasbourg, 8 June 2022.
