Mobility, two new European laboratories to ISPRA

As of 2020 to perform WLTP and RDE tests on car emissions

The European Commission has signed the contracts for building two new laboratories for testing car emissions within the research center of the Joint Research Centre (JRC) at ISPRA (Istituto Superiore per la Protezione e la Ricerca Ambientale, Institute for Environmental Protection and Research) (Varese).
The two new VELA (Vehicle Emissions Laboratories) laboratories, along with other 4 already existing within the JRC, will serve to perform new tasks that the European Commission has set forth in Regulation 2018/858 on the approvals, on the basis of which as of September 1, 2020 also Brussels will be able to directly carry out tests and inspections of vehicles to check their compliance.
The new VELA, specifies a message, will be located in two buildings that will be constructed next February, so that it could be possible to launch the tests both in laboratory (WLTP) and real driving conditions (RDE) by 2020.
