CEETTAR, CEMA and CLIMMAR Joint Statement on machines with transition engines built in 2019

COVID-19: Agricultural machinery manufacturers, dealers and contractors urgently call for a European pandemic response to cover machines with transition engines built in 2019.

Transition engines in all power categories have been already built before anybody could foresee the pandemic and resulting major disruptions. The COVID-19 pandemic is still causing major disruption which is impacting the agricultural machinery industry in the form of multiple shocks.

This challenges an industry which is system relevant and critical to enable sustainable farming and Europe’s food security. Manufacturers’ ability to meet some of the deadlines listed for the use of transition engines in Regulation 2016/1628/EU regarding exhaust emissions from NRMM and 2018/985/EU for agricultural vehicles is affected.

An extension of the 2021 transition period by further 12 months for engines built in 2019 is absolutely necessary to enable environmentally friendly technology development and market support in times of the coronavirus pandemic.

CEETTAR, CEMA and CLIMMAR call on the European Commission, the Council of the European Union and the European Parliament to implement the requested amendment as soon as possible to minimize the impact of COVID-19 on our industry and our customers at no environmental or economical cost. Only an urgent decision will provide enough visibility for European agricultural machinery manufacturers to balance production schedules with reduced capacities, supply chain disruptions, and market uncertainties while avoiding difficult scrapping decisions.
