EC's proposal for a Regulation on re-registration of vehicles within the EU
Insurance Europe welcomes the European Commission’s proposal for a Regulation simplifying the transfer of motor vehicles registered in another Member State within the Single Market. Insurance Europe however notes the following key concerns:
- Current efforts to combat uninsured driving within the EU may be undermined;
- Current efforts to improve road safety within the internal market may be undermined;
- Risks arise in relation to temporary registration certificates and dispatched vehicles;
- The existing structures that underpin the use of motor vehicles within the EU (for instance, the Codified Motor Insurance Directive) may be negatively impacted.
