The European Court of Auditors is conducting an audit of public participation in EU law-making. In particular, they will examine the public consultations with stakeholders undertaken by the European Commission when preparing its legislative proposals. The auditors have today published a Background Paper, “Consulting the public when preparing EU law”, as a source of information for those interested in the subject.
An online consultation will allow the event community to indicate their preferences for the sessions proposed, from 16 to 27 April.
The Agency has received the mandate to draft recommendation on the revision of Regulation 445/2011 and possible extension of its scope by adding other types of vehicles. In accordance with Article 6 and Article 7 of Regulation (EU) 2016/796, the Agency shall consult the social partners and organisations representing rail freight customers and passengers.
In accordance with the Commission mandate (C(2016) 5504), the Agency shall also consult the network of National Safety Authorities set up under Article 38(1) of Regulation (EU) 2016/796 and Article 18(4) of Directive (EU) 2016/798.
The European Court of Auditors is currently conducting an audit on passenger rights in the EU. An online survey to gauge citizens’ understanding of their rights when travelling and to gather information about their experiences is part of this audit. The auditors have also published a background briefing paper on passenger rights in the EU.
This public consultation will ultimately inform the evaluation and impact assessment prepared by the Commission, which will be used to assess whether or not to propose a revised Regulation on tyre labelling.
Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) means applying Information and Communication Technologies to transport. ITS applications and services can be very diverse, including for instance journey planners, travel information services, intelligent message signs and traffic lights, safety applications (automatic 112 calls, advanced cruise control) and traffic management. In many respects today’s vehicles are already connected devices. However, in the very near future they will also interact with each other, with the road infrastructure and possibly with other devices, and form part of an eco-system of cooperative, connected and automated mobility. This interaction is the domain of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS).
Target group: Travellers, European Citizens; Association of victims and their relatives; Transport Safety Authorities (SIA) (aviation and other modes); Aviation industries (airlines, airports, manufacturers); Pilots Associations.
