European Commission Work-Plan 2019 announced 26/10/18

<Back to list

2019 will be the fifth and final year of the Juncker Commission.  The European Parliament will hold its final plenary meeting on 15-18 April 2019, while the European elections of 23-26 May will deliver a new College of Commissioners in the Autumn of 2019.

Accordingly, the European Commission will focus on closing dossiers in 2019 (84 Priority Pending Issues), rather than proposing fresh initiatives (15 new initiatives):

The five Priority Pending Proposals in Transport declared as a priority to conclude in 2019 include the amendment of the Combined Transport Directive.

 

15. Mobility and Climate Change package

(https://ec.europa.eu/info/sites/info/files/cwp_2019_publication_annex_ii_and_iii_en.pdf)

  • Proposal for a REGULATION setting CO2 emission performance standards for new heavy-duty vehicles
  • Proposal for a REGULATION setting emission performance standards for new passenger cars and for new light commercial vehicles as part of the Union's integrated approach to reduce CO2 emissions from light-duty vehicles
  • Proposal for an amending REGULATION on common rules for access to the international market for coach and bus services
  • Proposal for an amending DIRECTIVE on the establishment of common rules for certain types of combined transport of goods between Member States
  • Proposal for an amending DIRECTIVE on the promotion of clean and energy-efficient road transport vehicles

 

UIRR works closely with the European Commission, the European Council and the European Parliament to catalyse the fulfillment of the desired priority of successfully resolving the amendment of the Combined Transport Directive.  These efforts should deliver changes that (i) eliminate the shortcomings of the current form of the Directive, (ii) extend the benefits defined therein to a higher portion of intermodal transport movements, while (iii) reduce the burden of enforcement and compliance.
