CITA conference hosted in collaboration with the Czech Presidency of the Council of the EU
Last Tuesday (20 September 2022), in the frame of the European Mobility Week (16-22 September 2022), CITA hosted a conference in collaboration with the Czech Presidency of the Council of the EU entitled:” The challenge of controlling emissions and non-road machinery”.
International experts got together in Brussels to discuss about two very important environmental protection topics: the PN-measurement for diesel vehicles and road safety and emission, and the safety inspection of non-road machineries. During the event participants have had the chance to share experiences with representatives of the Czech Republic and experts and to talk about different ways to improve road safety and emission behavior of vehicles. Especially the often-forgotten non-road machineries have been in the focus of the meeting.
The agenda of the meeting included the intervention of:
- Mr. Martin Tichy from the Ministry of Transport of Czech Republic
- Mr. Martin Hron from TÜV SÜD
- Mr. Pascal Buekenhoudt from GOCA Flanders
- Mr. Eduard Fernandez from CITA
- Mr. Andreas Mayer from VERT
- Mr. Guillermo Magaz from AECA-ITV
“Vehicle inspection goes a long way in keeping vehicles as clean and safe as possible. I am convinced that we must maintain the level of safety and environmental standards even for off-road machines throughout their entire life cycle, as we do for any. CITA will continue to push for modern, meaningful and impartial vehicle safety and emission inspections, regardless of vehicle type” concluded Mr. MÜLLER – President of CITA.
