Evaluation of Directive 2010/40/EU on the framework for the deployment of Intelligent Transport Systems in the field of road transport and for interfaces with other modes of transport
The ITS Directive provides the legal framework to support the coordinated and coherent deployment and use of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) within the European Union, in particular across borders. It defines four priority areas for ITS development and deployment. In these priority areas, the Directive provides for the development of legally binding specifications for interoperability and continuity through delegated acts, as well as for the development, where appropriate, of necessary standards. It also provides for the adoption of guidelines and other non-binding measures by the Commission.
The Commission is currently carrying out an evaluation of the Directive to assess to which extent the ITS Directive contributed to the faster and more coordinated deployment of ITS as well as the better functioning of the road transport system and its interfaces with other modes of transport. As part of the evaluation process, the Commission is carrying out this public consultation.
This consultation will last for 12 weeks. Questionnaires should be returned by 28 July 2017 at the very latest.
