Approval authorities and vehicle manufacturers must ensure that the CO2 emissions recorded in vehicle documents (e.g. certificate of conformity or individual approval certificate) correspond to test results for that vehicle.
This initiative sets the criteria for procedures to check this, through ‘in-service verification’. These procedures should make it possible to detect any strategy used to artificially improve the vehicles’ CO2 performance or fuel consumption in the type-approval test.
The feedback period is open from 17 November 2023 till 15 December 2023. The European Commission will take this feedback into account for finalising the initiative.
