The EHA has lobbied over the past months to ensure that L type vehicles (two and three wheelers) are included in the EU Regulation on the homologation of hydrogen powered vehicles. The final EU Parliament report on this EU regulation, that was approved on September 3 (see under EU news), urged the European Commission to start working on an EU Regulation for L type vehicles before 2010. The Commission has now commissioned an evaluation of the safety of L type vehicles  to assess the impact of possible new measures on the safety of category L vehicles and the impact of simplifying the legislation covering the type approval of category L vehicles including hydrogen.  The EHA has submitted data on hydrogen L type vehicles emphasizing that an EU standardized regulatory framework is crucial  as small hydrogen vehicles technology is now clearly at a stage where it needs to be deployed pre-commercially in real-life conditions
