In the past decade, the European Union (EU) and China have achieved a good level of exchange and regulatory cooperation in several areas, including in the automotive sector, with positive results. The dialogue in this sector has been focusing on energy efficiency and pollutants emission control. The deployment of harmonised emission standards is increasingly important also from a strategic point of view, in order to minimise trade barriers and facilitate adoption of new technologies at global level.
The workshop will focus on latest developments for motor vehicles regulations on CO2 and pollutants and will be held as a virtual live event, from 3 to 5 March 2021. This workshop follows up three previous editions jointly organised by the Vehicle Emission Control Center (China) and the Joint Research Centre (2017 in Beijing, 2018 in Brussels and 2019 in Xi'an).
- The first day of the event will be dedicated to opening speeches and setting the legislative scene for upcoming standards and regulations in EU and China, with insights from industry and stakeholders.
- The second day will focus on Heavy Duty Vehicle (HDV) and Non-Road Mobile Machinery (NRMM) testing within EU and China Regulation, as well as on transport emission modelling and impact on air quality. This second session will also include a more practical demonstration of the JRC SHERPA tool and its applicability to China.
- The third day will address further views and experiences on HDV CO2 emissions. A demonstration of the JRC VECTO tool will close the final session.
The event aims at bringing together EU and China legislators, stakeholders and scientists to discuss the latest international regulations on CO2 and pollutants.
