Public consultation on the proposed prolongation of the Motor Vehicle Block Exemption Regulation and the draft amendments to the Supplementary Guidelines

Policy field

Competition: Antitrust


Target group

All citizens, organisations and public authorities are welcome to contribute to this consultation.


Period of consultation

From 6 July 2022 to 30 September 2022


Objective of the consultation

On 6 July 2022, the Commission published a draft Regulation prolonging the Motor Vehicle Block Exemption Regulation (“MVBER”) and a draft Communication amending the Supplementary Guidelines for stakeholder comments. Through the consultation, the Commission aims to gather stakeholder feedback on the proposed prolongation of the MVBER and the proposed changes to the Supplementary Guidelines.

The evaluation showed that the regime had been useful and remained relevant for stakeholders. The evaluation also demonstrated that while the motor vehicle market was likely to evolve in the coming years, there had been no material developments in the last decade that would justify a major revision of the MVBER regime. The evaluation revealed however that an update was necessary to reflect the importance that access to vehicle-generated data was likely to have as a factor of competition.
