Polish parliament adopts EU scrap cars law

Poland's lower parliamentary house, the Sejm, last week passed draft legislation to implement the EU's 2000 end-of-life vehicles directive. Whereas the directive allows that consumers can be required to pay some costs of collecting and recycling scrap cars the Polish measure places full responsibility on producers and importers. It states that no car owner should have to travel more than 50km to a collecting point. MPs supported the bill nearly unanimously. The measure now passes to Poland's senate, which is not expected to introduce any significant changes. See Polish parliament, and ELV bill.
