The Directorate General for Mobility and Transport has in December 2014 launched a study to assist it with the preparation of non-binding guidance documents on six specific aspects of urban access regulations.
After a tender process, a consortium led by Instituto di Studi per l'Integrazione dei Sistemi (IT) and involving PricewaterhouseCoopers (BE) is conducting the study.
An online consultation on the first two topics "Information and communication on the schemes adopted for urban access regulations" and "Cross-border enforcement, vehicle types, their identification and exemptions" had been launched and completed in 2015.
Currently and until 24 June 2016, the consortium is gathering stakeholders' input on its consolidated drafts for the following non-binding guidance documents under consideration:
- Planning, Consultation and Design of UVAR schemes
- National Legal Frameworks
