End-of-Life Vehicles: The New Proposed EU Rules To Make the Automotive Sector Circular

July 2023
Region: Europe
On July 13, 2023, the EU Commission (Commission) proposed a new regulation concerning end-of-life vehicles (ELVs), with the aim of ensuring sustainable management of ELVs and of maximizing the reuse or recycling of most ELV parts and materials. This proposal builds upon and replaces two existing directives – Directive 2000/53/EC on end-of-life vehicles and Directive 2005/64/EC on the type-approval of motor vehicles with regard to their reusability, recyclability and recoverability.
