eCall Impact Assessment Study investigates different market options
Creation date: 05 March 2009
To support the political decision on whether or not to introduce a regulatory approach, the European Commission has launched an eCall Impact Assessment Study that will investigate the market introduction of eCall across Europe, analyse the legal and liability issues, carry out a full assessment of potential impact of eCall introduction, identify the costs and benefits, and assess three specific policy options: do nothing, voluntary agreement supported with public sector campaigns and other actions, or mandatory introduction by regulation.
In addition to supporting this decision by the European Commission, the study will provide help to inform decision making by other stakeholders in the eCall service chain.
The eCall Impact Assessment Study, lead by TRL, involve as major partners TNO, VTT, eSafetyAware, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, and ERTICO. The study will be run over 6 months and first results are expected by May 2009.
