Spain and Czech Republic support eCall deployment
Creation date: 22 June 2007
The commitment to the pan-European emergency call eCall received another boost with the 5 June announcement of Spain and the Czech Republic’s intention to sign the eCall Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) later this year.
The announcement was made at the high-level eSafety conference which took place 5-6 June 2007 in Berlin, hosted by the German Federal Ministry for Transport, Building and Urban Affairs, in the context of the German Presidency of the EU Council.
Mr Antonio Espinosa of the Dirección General de Protección Civil y Emergencias, Spain, and Mr Josef Pokorny of the Czech Ministry of Transport expressed the support of their respective countries for the eCall initiative to Mr Rudolf Strohmeier, Head of Cabinet of Viviane Reding, Commissioner for Information Society and Media. The official signatures will be made at the i2010 Intelligent Car Event in Versailles, France on 18 September. The Netherlands and other Member States are also expected to sign the eCall MoU in Versailles.
Spain also announced that it is planning the implementation of an intermediation centre that will receive all eCalls in Spain and transmit the relevant emergency calls to the Centros 1-1-2 (Spanish PSAP) of Spain’s autonomous regions.
