ELV Evaluation Study

Project Summary

This study seeks to provide evidence to assess whether the objectives of Directive 2000/53/EC on end-of-life vehicles (ELV) have been met, whether its provisions are sufficiently implemented and whether, as a result of both aspects, the ELV-Directive supports the general objectives of the EU’s environmental policy.

The process of evaluation follows the EC guidance for evaluations and considers the relevance, coherence, effectiveness, efficiency and EU added value of the Directive’s provisions and the legislation implementing it. Through a stakeholder consultation and a review of other information sources, the study will compile, assess and synthesize evidence related to the requirements established by the ELV- Directive and the impacts these may have. All relevant aspects – legal, environmental, economic and social – will be considered.

The results of this evaluation shall be used to identify measures to improve the ELV- Directive and its implementation.
