SUPPORT FOR THE ANFAC DENOUNCE
The Spanish Confederation of Business Organizations (CEOE), the Spanish Confederation of Small and Medium Enterprises (CEPYME) and the Confederation of Business Associations of the Balearic Islands (CAEB) have expressed their “unanimous support” to the complaint presented by the Spanish Association of Manufacturers of Vehicles and Trucks (ANFAC) before the European Commission and before the Council for the Market Unit, under the Ministry of Economy and Enterprise, the draft Law on Climate Change and Energy Transition of the Balearic Government.
The organizations defend “the harmonization of the autonomous policies of transition to the electric vehicle with the national and the European”, and affirm that the Law of Climate Change and Energy Transition of the Balearic Government “seriously affects the normal functioning of the internal market, thus assuming a clear breach of European Union law. ” On the other hand, the Balearic norm contemplates the prohibition that can circulate through the islands diesel vehicles (cars and motorcycles) from 2025, despite being legal in the rest of Spain and the European Union.
In addition, since the year 2035, the circulation of vehicles powered by fossil fuels (cars, motorcycles, vans and vans), would be prohibited. Notwithstanding the law, it will permit the circulation of vehicles already established in the Balearic Islands, regardless of their age and their emissions. Along with CEOE, CEPYME and CAEB, they also show their support for the complaints of ANFAC the Federation of Associations of Automotive Dealers (FACONAUTO), as well as the Business Association of Automotive Distributors of the Balearic Islands (ASEDA) and the Balearic Association of Companies of Vehicle Rental with Driver (BALEVAL), integrated in the Balearic Business Federation of Transport (FEBT), which mark the Balearic norm of “contrary to European policy”, as well as “regressive and discriminatory”.
