Particularly given the fast-emerging market developments in digitalization, connectivity, autonomous driving, the Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence, which are supported by intangible products and / or services, such as software, sensors, connectivity, apps, it is the view of CLEPA that the scope and the application of strict liability should be extended to include all relevant market participants and stakeholders, involved in this new ecosystem. That would include all those who provide reasonably expected levels of safety throughout the supply chain, who bring their specific use cases and / or applications to the deployment of CAVs, such as all kinds of services, data, connectivity, telecom, software and infrastructure providers (currently excluded from product liability).

The EU transport commissioner-designate today committed to greater European action on maritime emissions, but risked being at odds with public demand to address airlines’ climate impact. Transport & Environment (T&E) said Adina-Ioana Vălean’s hearing in the European Parliament’s transport committee, in which she also provided little detail on deploying the infrastructure needed for zero-emissions road transport, was a “mixed bag”.
