December Update: Transport

4 December 2017

With 2017 drawing to a close, the Estonian Presidency is moving to the end of its time at the helm, and thoughts are already turning to the Bulgarian Presidency due to run for the first half of 2018.

Look out for DeHavilland EU's special briefing on the new Bulgarian Presidency later this month, featuring everything you need to know about the incoming leaders and their policy programme.

It's also a crucial time in the Brexit negotiations, as anxious businesses seek clarity on the future shape of the relationship between the EU and the departing UK.

Here, Darius Mikulėnas, DeHavilland EU's Policy Analyst for Transport, gives you the lowdown on what to watch out for this December.

What's on the agenda this month

by Darius Mikulėnas, EU Policy Analyst

In December the EU will continue its work on the type approval legislation, having failed to reach an agreement at the end of November.
 
Work will also begin on the recently introduced Clean Mobility package. A final vote will also take place on the own-initiative report on the European Strategy for Low-Emission Mobility.
 
In the aviation sector, all eyes are on the next trilogue on the revision of the EASA Basic Regulation. The upcoming Competition Council meeting will also focus on taking note of the progress made on safeguarding competition in air transport.
 
Finally, the Parliament in full is expected to adopt the proposal on a global market-based measure to tackle international aviation emissions on 12 December.
