This Commission Staff Working Document has been prepared in accordance with Article 11(4) of Directive 1999/62/EC. It provides a summary of the measures that internalise or reduce transport externalities related to environment, noise and health.

The report:

introduces the principal findings of a study that was carried out by external consultants to collect information on existing policies for the pricing of externalities in transport. The focus is on pricing measures rather than on regulation, in line with the economic concept of ‘internalisation’ of externalities; summarises, following the request of the Eurovignette Directive, the regulatory measures that aim at reducing transport externalities. It does so by complementing with the latest developments the information contained in the “Greening Transport Inventory” accompanying the Communication on Greening Transport , which summarised the different kinds of measures taken to reduce the negative impact of transport until 31 March 2008;

refers to some other non-regulatory measures that also contribute to the abatement of negative externalities and provides updated information on the implementation of the Commission’s internalisation strategy.

   EC - Follow-up document
Details

The Commission presents a staff working document containing an ex-post evaluation analysis of the effects of Directive 1999/62/EC on the charging of heavy goods vehicles for the use of certain infrastructures.

The analysis bears in mind the strategy outlined in the 2011 Transport White Paper to move towards the full application of the 'user pays' and 'polluter pays' principles. The ex-post evaluation, which primarily is based on information provided by Member States supplemented by information obtained from research literature, provides conclusions as to whether the key objectives of the Directive were achieved. They also highlight possible gaps, which remain to be addressed in line with the above-mentioned strategy.

The report notes that Directive 2011/76/EU which recently amended Directive 1999/62/EC has now created an opportunity for Member States to move towards a higher degree of internalisation of external costs generated by heavy goods vehicles. The new Directive gives Member States the option of charging heavy goods vehicles for the costs of air and noise pollution they generate. The opportunity for a wider differentiation of toll rates according to the time of road use allows road operators to better manage traffic and reduce congestion. Additionally, the new Directive provides a strong incentive to earmark some of the tolling revenues to contribute to the financing of projects for alternative transport infrastructure, innovative clean transport systems or safe parking areas.

A separate assessment will be made of this Directive with a view to highlighting any areas that may need to be addressed in accordance with the strategy of the 2011 Transport White Paper to move towards the full application of the 'user pays' and 'polluter pays' principles.

Details

While welcoming the emphasis placed on external costs by Parliament, Commissioner Kinnock said that the Commission had proposed, in the directive, the possibility – but not the obligation – for Member States to add a modest external-cost element. As a result, he rejected Amendments Nos 9 and 17. Amendments Nos 14, 18, 19, 20, 21 and 22, on the provisions of the original proposal on ‘sensitive routes’, were also rejected. Mr Kinnock could also not accept Amendment No 7 on the concept of sensitive areas which was too vague as the whole world could fall within this concept. On the other hand, he accepted Amendment No 3 calling for a reference to the Alpine Convention. Amendments Nos 5, 11, 12 and 13 were also accepted. However, Mr Kinnock rejected Amendment No 6 providing for an open-ended rather than a time-limited derogation for minimum taxes and No 1 on external costs. In this respect, the Commissioner said that the amendment in question could not be accepted partly because it would restrict the application of external cost principles to road transport only. The Commissioner also did not agree with the content of Amendment No 24, which aimed to simplify the structure of minimum vehicle taxes. As for user charges, he accepted Amendment No 9, calling for differentiated user charge rates during rush hours and night-time, and Amendment No 15, proposing a 50% reduction in rates for vehicles from peripheral regions, which was time-limited. With regard to levels of user charges and their structure, the Commissioner stressed that the maximum annual levels proposed in Amendment No 26, ranging between ECU 1 000 and 2 500, were too high. Finally, Mr Kinnock confirmed the validity of the system for classifying vehicles into three categories, according to their capacity to cause damage to infrastructures, and therefore rejected the other system proposed in Amendments Nos 16 to 25. He also rejected Amendments Nos 27 to 42, which had also been rejected by the Committee on Transport.

The Council held an exploratory debate on the new proposal put forward by the Commission in July 1996, which it had already debated at the meeting of 3-4 October 1996. This proposal differed considerably from the directive that had been revoked. The delegations agreed that Directive 93/89/EEC, which had been repealed by the Court of Justice, should be replaced as a matter of urgency. Pending Parliament’s opinion, the Council instructed the Permanent Representatives Committee to continue to examine this matter and to submit a new report at the next Council session so that it could quickly reach an agreement on the common position.

            • date: 2013-01-10T00:00:00 docs: title: SWD(2013)0001 summary: The Commission presents a staff working document containing an ex-post evaluation analysis of the effects of Directive 1999/62/EC on the charging of heavy goods vehicles for the use of certain infrastructures. The analysis bears in mind the strategy outlined in the 2011 Transport White Paper to move towards the full application of the 'user pays' and 'polluter pays' principles. The ex-post evaluation, which primarily is based on information provided by Member States supplemented by information obtained from research literature, provides conclusions as to whether the key objectives of the Directive were achieved. They also highlight possible gaps, which remain to be addressed in line with the above-mentioned strategy. The report notes that Directive 2011/76/EU which recently amended Directive 1999/62/EC has now created an opportunity for Member States to move towards a higher degree of internalisation of external costs generated by heavy goods vehicles. The new Directive gives Member States the option of charging heavy goods vehicles for the costs of air and noise pollution they generate. The opportunity for a wider differentiation of toll rates according to the time of road use allows road operators to better manage traffic and reduce congestion. Additionally, the new Directive provides a strong incentive to earmark some of the tolling revenues to contribute to the financing of projects for alternative transport infrastructure, innovative clean transport systems or safe parking areas. A separate assessment will be made of this Directive with a view to highlighting any areas that may need to be addressed in accordance with the strategy of the 2011 Transport White Paper to move towards the full application of the 'user pays' and 'polluter pays' principles. type: Follow-up document body: EC
            • date: 2013-07-03T00:00:00 docs: title: SWD(2013)0269 summary: This Commission Staff Working Document has been prepared in accordance with Article 11(4) of Directive 1999/62/EC. It provides a summary of the measures that internalise or reduce transport externalities related to environment, noise and health. The report: introduces the principal findings of a study that was carried out by external consultants to collect information on existing policies for the pricing of externalities in transport. The focus is on pricing measures rather than on regulation, in line with the economic concept of ‘internalisation’ of externalities; summarises, following the request of the Eurovignette Directive, the regulatory measures that aim at reducing transport externalities. It does so by complementing with the latest developments the information contained in the “Greening Transport Inventory” accompanying the Communication on Greening Transport , which summarised the different kinds of measures taken to reduce the negative impact of transport until 31 March 2008; refers to some other non-regulatory measures that also contribute to the abatement of negative externalities and provides updated information on the implementation of the Commission’s internalisation strategy. type: Follow-up document body: EC

This proposal differed considerably from the directive that had been revoked. The delegations agreed that Directive 93/89/EEC, which had been repealed by the Court of Justice, should be replaced as a matter of urgency. Pending Parliament’s opinion, the Council instructed the Permanent Representatives Committee to continue to examine this matter and to submit a new report at the next Council session so that it could quickly reach an agreement on the common position.

As a result, he rejected Amendments Nos 9 and 17. Amendments Nos 14, 18, 19, 20, 21 and 22, on the provisions of the original proposal on ‘sensitive routes’, were also rejected. Mr Kinnock could also not accept Amendment No 7 on the concept of sensitive areas which was too vague as the whole world could fall within this concept. On the other hand, he accepted Amendment No 3 calling for a reference to the Alpine Convention. Amendments Nos 5, 11, 12 and 13 were also accepted. However, Mr Kinnock rejected Amendment No 6 providing for an open-ended rather than a time-limited derogation for minimum taxes and No 1 on external costs. In this respect, the Commissioner said that the amendment in question could not be accepted partly because it would restrict the application of external cost principles to road transport only. The Commissioner also did not agree with the content of Amendment No 24, which aimed to simplify the structure of minimum vehicle taxes. As for user charges, he accepted Amendment No 9, calling for differentiated user charge rates during rush hours and night-time, and Amendment No 15, proposing a 50% reduction in rates for vehicles from peripheral regions, which was time-limited. With regard to levels of user charges and their structure, the Commissioner stressed that the maximum annual levels proposed in Amendment No 26, ranging between ECU 1 000 and 2 500, were too high. Finally, Mr Kinnock confirmed the validity of the system for classifying vehicles into three categories, according to their capacity to cause damage to infrastructures, and therefore rejected the other system proposed in Amendments Nos 16 to 25. He also rejected Amendments Nos 27 to 42, which had also been rejected by the Committee on Transport.
