The European directive on end-of-life vehicles (2000/53/EC), adopted over 20 years ago, largely achieved the very ambitious objectives and challenges it set at the time: freeing the environment from abandoned cars, establishing minimum requirements for the management of waste from ELVs and set targets for reuse / recycling / recovery of ELVs. Directive 2000/53 / EC was also the first waste legislation to introduce provisions on producer responsibility. It is an excellent example of an instrument at the service of the circular economy. Today, twenty years later, the challenges are different, the design, technologies and materials have changed and the directive needs to be adapted accordingly.

For this reason after a first evaluation of the ELV directive by the European Commission. the car end-of-life sector awaits the proposal to revise the ELV directive, presumably adopted by 2022. The representatives of the car end-of-life sector are discussing it.
