The End of Life Vehicles Directive
Introduced in 2007, the End-of-Life Vehicles Directive (2000/53/EC) requires manufacturers to meet all or a significant part of the cost of processing End-of-Life vehicles with nil or negative market value for all vehicles of their brand(s). Manufacturers and their contracted partners must also reach strict recycling targets – 85% of vehicle weight as of 2006 and 95% by 2015.
