ACEA appears to be highly engaged in EU NOx policy, seeming to focus on the RDE reform. While they pledged their support for a “robust but realistic RDE package” in October 2015, ACEA has repeatedly emphasized the need for a gradual process of reform, and has likely been a factor in delaying the process of legislative reform in the European Parliament. In March 2014 ACEA urged the European Commission that “The RDE test should not be rushed to part-completion simply to meet an impractical deadline or as a box ticking exercise.” In October 2014 ACEA called for the revision of several key components of RDE, which could have resulted in reduced regulatory stringency. ACEA proposed the revision of key boundary requirements including: tightening the temperature range to reach from 9°C to 30°C to omit cold-starts and stipulating that the urban speed range should be restricted to 25-45 kilometers per hour. ACEA has also proposed a delayed implementation timeline for RDE, calling for the testing of all new vehicles to be postponed to five years after the formal publication of the RDE legislation, thereby deferring full conformity to beyond 2020. In a leaked letter to EU policymakers sent on September 29 2015, ACEA president Carlos Ghosn insisted that regulatory reform was not feasible “before September 2019 for all new registrations.” ACEA has proposed an interim Conformity Factor of 1.7, emphasizing the need to accommodate measurement uncertainty. However, reports suggest ACEA hopes to extend the 1.7 Conformity Factor beyond 2020, which exceeds the current proposal of a 1.4 Conformity Factor beyond 2020. ACEA also promotes the importance of safeguarding the diesel industry from damagingly complex and burdensome emissions regulation.
