Details

The rapporteur called for a reduction in emissions and an improvement in fuel quality. He wanted binding values for 2005 and the introduction of an emissions monitoring system and an on-board diagnostics system. He also warned against the campaigning carried out by intermediaries from the oil industry in an attempt to dissuade Parliament. Commissioner Bjerregaard agreed with setting binding emission limits for 2000 and guideline standards for 2005. She added that the Commission and Parliament shared the same objectives and that any differences only concerned the means of achieving these. Commissioner Bangemann confirmed that the Commission would not accept any amendments which it had rejected at first reading. In his opinion, the Auto/Oil principles had been accepted by all the European institutions but certain amendments tabled by Parliament did not correspond to these principles. However, the Commissioner accepted the following amendments: Nos 4, 11, 49, 50, 51 and 53 (in full); Nos 5, 9, 15, 31, 54 and 69 (in part).

Details

The rapporteur criticised the Commission’s overly timid stance. He also regretted that the design and implementation of the Auto/Oil Programme totally lacked transparency given the lack of involvement of social associations, politicians and non-governmental organisations. He then recommended a two-stage approach which would impose binding limits from 2000 and 2005. Finally, he pointed out the usefulness of tax incentives and stressed the need to establish realistic tests. Commissioner Bjerregaard confirmed that the Commission would do what was necessary to respond to Parliament’s criticisms on the preparation of the Auto/Oil Programme II. While accepting a few of Parliament’s amendments, the Commissioner expressed reservations about most of these, particularly those aiming to tighten the limit values for 2000. While considering that adopting tighter compulsory limits for 2005 would send a clear signal to industry, Mrs Bjerregaard confirmed that current technical knowledge did not allow the Commission to accept this proposal.

He also regretted that the design and implementation of the Auto/Oil Programme totally lacked transparency given the lack of involvement of social associations, politicians and non-governmental organisations. He then recommended a two-stage approach which would impose binding limits from 2000 and 2005. Finally, he pointed out the usefulness of tax incentives and stressed the need to establish realistic tests. Commissioner Bjerregaard confirmed that the Commission would do what was necessary to respond to Parliament’s criticisms on the preparation of the Auto/Oil Programme II. While accepting a few of Parliament’s amendments, the Commissioner expressed reservations about most of these, particularly those aiming to tighten the limit values for 2000. While considering that adopting tighter compulsory limits for 2005 would send a clear signal to industry, Mrs Bjerregaard confirmed that current technical knowledge did not allow the Commission to accept this proposal.

He wanted binding values for 2005 and the introduction of an emissions monitoring system and an on-board diagnostics system. He also warned against the campaigning carried out by intermediaries from the oil industry in an attempt to dissuade Parliament. Commissioner Bjerregaard agreed with setting binding emission limits for 2000 and guideline standards for 2005. She added that the Commission and Parliament shared the same objectives and that any differences only concerned the means of achieving these. Commissioner Bangemann confirmed that the Commission would not accept any amendments which it had rejected at first reading. In his opinion, the Auto/Oil principles had been accepted by all the European institutions but certain amendments tabled by Parliament did not correspond to these principles. However, the Commissioner accepted the following amendments: Nos 4, 11, 49, 50, 51 and 53 (in full); Nos 5, 9, 15, 31, 54 and 69 (in part).
