Karima Delli, French MEP and chair of the transport committee of the European Parliament calls for a fair access to in-vehicle data for all mobility providers.
During a conference organized last week in Paris by "les ateliers du MAP" (French observatory of experts on mobility), MEP Karima Delli expressed her concerns about equal access to in-vehicle data.
 The access to in-vehicle data is one of the largest motorway project and is a component of the “Green Deal” that the European Commission wants to establish. It is also under discussion within the framework of the LOM law in France.
The key requirements for a competitive automotive aftermarket and mobility services can only be fulfilled if the legislative framework can ensure a fair, stable and transparent competitive environment for all service providers in the mobility sector. To enable competitive digital services, it is essential to be able to communicate with the vehicle and the driver and to have access to its data, resources and functions. 
“This is an issue of the utmost importance for Europe. It is a source of the future innovative and collaborative mobility services. CECRA's role is to take part in this necessary collective effort of innovation in services while safeguarding true consumer choice. CECRA is committed to being a major stakeholder in this process. Time has come to move forward on the issue and to develop a robust legislative proposal” explained jean-Charles Herrenschmidt, president of CECRA.
CECRA, which represents dealers and repairers at European level, together with several other European associations, has the same approach as Karima Delli, the chair of the transport committee. This approach was underlined in two initiative reports of the European Parliament under the previous legislature, led by the Hungarian MEP István Ujhelyi in March 2018 and by the Dutch MEP Wim Van de Camp in November 2018.

CECRA will continue to participate to any discussions after having followed actively the works in Cars 21, Cars 2020 Gear 2030, the C-ITS platform and more recently the PoC (Proof of Concept).
This request should belong to a new EU legislation and is now part of the work programme of the EC. DG GROW is also currently discussing the topic and subgroups of the Motor Vehicle Working Group (MVWG) have been devoted to ‘access to data-cybersecurity’ which has been dealt with in detail.

It is time for all the stakeholder to build together the intelligent mobility of tomorrow in terms of data access, security and energy. This is essential for Europe and the future of the sector.
