EU Commissioner Reding asks Member States to set up national platforms for eCall
Creation date: 05 March 2009
The EU Commissioner for Information Society and Media addressed an official letter to all Members States where she drew their attention to the European Parliament resolution on the European Commission's Intelligent Car Communication: “Towards Europe-wide Safer, Cleaner and Efficient Mobility” which was discussed and voted on by a large majority in the Plenary of the European Parliament in Strasbourg on 19 June.
One of the key eSafety issues highlighted by the Commission’s Intelligent Car Communication of 17 September 2007 and fully supported by the European Parliament in its resolution is the deployment of the pan-European emergency call system eCall.
Moreover in this resolution the European Parliament calls on Members States to all sign the eCall Memorandum of Understanding and to commit to a number of actions aiming at the development of a European eCall Implementation Platform. The European platform, run by national stakeholders previously nominated by each member state, will coordinate the deployment of eCall in Europe. Furthermore, all relevant public and private stakeholders from each Member State should join their efforts to develop implementation plans for eCall at country level and set up National Platforms to ensure good coordination between the actions taken at European and national level.
In order to achieve the requested actions each Member State should provide the European Commission with an update on their planned actions and with the name of the contact person for the European eCall Implementation Platform.
