New rules for C-ITS

On 13 March 2019, the European Commission adopted new rules to accelerate the deployment of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) on Europe's roads.

The rules will be in line with the clean mobility proposals and the EU road fatality reduction targets. The aim of the legislation is to create legal certainty for vehicle manufacturers and road operators. This is important as from this year vehicles, road signs and motorways will be equipped with the new technology. Minimum requirements for interoperability between the different systems used will be defined to enable all C-ITS stations equipped with this technology to securely exchange messages with other stations in an open network.


It is a delegated act. After publication, the European Parliament and the Council have two months to object to the entry into force of the act.
