Negotiations about changes to EU Directive 96/53/EC are continuing under the Italian Presidency.  We support proposed changes to the directive to allow extra length to enable new cab designs, with the timings to be determined in Type Approval legislation. We support the completion of the negotiations as soon as possible.
