What is the Directive 2000/53/EC on end-of-life vehicles?

Every year, millions of vehicles in Europe reach the end of their life. If end-of-life vehicles (ELV) are not managed properly, they can be a threat to the environment as well as a lost source of millions of tonnes of materials. Directive 2000/53/EC on end-of-life vehicles (ELV Directive) was adopted in 2000 to minimise the impact of end-of-life vehicles (ELVs) on the environment and to improve the environmental performance of all the economic operators involved in the life cycle of vehicles.

Why is the Commission performing a consultation?

Directive 2018/849/EU obliges the Commission to evaluate it by the end of 2020. Special attention is to be given to its implementation, to the feasibility of setting targets for reporting per specific materials, and to the problem of the end-of-life vehicles of unknown whereabouts.

You can contribute to this consultation by filling in the online questionnaire.
