MSB lämnade in sitt regeringsuppdrag om nödlarmssystemet eCall till Försvarsdepartementet fredagen den 28 februari 2014.
En formell remiss kommer att skickas ut men eftersom förhandlingar pågår inom EU, både när det gäller larminfrastrukturen och typgodkännandet, har ni redan nu möjlighet att sända in spontana synpunkter på MSB:s rapport till Åsa Vagland på Näringsdepartementet firstname.lastname@example.org
European Commission has published its recommendation on support for an EU-wide eCall service in electronic communication networks for the transmission of in-vehicle emergency calls based on 112 (‘eCalls’) and its Impact Assessment on the implementation of a harmonised EU-wide in-vehicle emergency call.
The eCall Impact Assessment was undertaken by the European Commission in 2010/11 to answer the question on which policy option to follow for the implementation of eCall. The Impact Assessment concludes that the regulatory approach is the most effective and efficient, and is thus recommended as the preferred option for the implementation of the eCall service in the EU. This option was calculated to have a Benefit/Cost Ratio of 3.16.
The Impact Assessment recommends the obligatory introduction of a harmonised, interoperable EU-wide eCall service, based on 112 and on the pan-European standards developed by the European Standardisation Organisations, in all vehicles in Europe starting with certain categories (i.e. passenger cars and light-duty vehicles), together with the upgrading of MNOs and PSAPs to receive/forward and handle eCalls.
