The European Commission will present its proposals to revise the type approval system for cars on 27 January.
On 2 February, the European Parliament will vote on whether or not to reject the controversial decision creating loopholes ('conformity factors') in the proposed Real Driving Emissions test for car emissions.
This briefing will address these two crucial moments in the EU's response to the Volkswagen/dieselgate scandal. The briefing will provide background on the proposal and insight ahead of the parliament vote.

This briefing is for journalists only.

The briefing will take place in English and will be accompanied by a light breakfast.
