EU consults on vehicle metal bans

Stakeholders asked for input on heavy metal exemptions to end-of-life vehicles directive

The European commission has launched public consultations on possible changes to annex II of the 2000 end-of-life vehicles directive, which specifies exemptions to a ban on several heavy metals in car components.  Stakeholders are invited to comment by 20 December.  The first consultation deals with four exemptions that the directive says should be examined.  The second concerns possible exemptions for metals in spare parts put on the market after 2003.  See Commission ELV pages, plus consultation 1 and consultation 2.
