ECCT Mobility committee
Effective from August 2019, the ECCT's Automotive committee has been renamed the Mobility committee. The decision to change the name and expand the focus and reach was made by members of the committee to take into account the automotive industry’s ongoing transformation and to embrace the opportunities and address the new challenges arising from the trends towards greater electrification, connectivity, digitalisation, the shared economy and autonomous driving. In line with the new mandate, in addition to the committee’s existing focus on the operations of importers and the homologation of vehicles and automotive parts, the committee’s focus will expand to include, among other activities, engagement with stakeholders in government and industry in the electric vehicle and charging supply chain, digital connectivity systems and services for vehicle sharing and autonomous driving. By expanding its mission and focus in this way, the Mobility committee aims to increase its engagement with government to advocate for practical regulations covering new mobility areas in line with international standards and best practices and to attract new members engaged in the broad range of mobility-related equipment, infrastructure and services. Building on the mission of the Automotive committee, the objectives of the Mobility committee are as follows:
- To advocate for a fair and reasonable regulatory environment that enables and promotes the development and adoption of the most innovative and advanced mobility solutions for the Taiwan market in terms of safety, convenience and environmental impact.
- To improve the business environment for European car manufacturers, component importers and distributors by working towards getting recognition for existing vehicle component regulations for car leasing and the importation of new and second-hand cars.
- To create added value for related Taiwanese businesses and industries by actively participating in ongoing transformation in the automotive sector.
The committee will continue to host internal meetings to discuss industry and advocacy issues, hold international forums, seminars and other activities to discuss strategies and actions on specific issues and hold regular meetings with government ministries and agencies.
