Bernd Holz (Ammann, SVSS) takes up CECE Presidency

CECE, the European construction equipment manufacturers’ association has a new President, with Bernd Holz (Ammann) taking over from Eric Lepine (Caterpillar). “The CECE priorities for the next term include the completion of the new engine exhaust emissions legislation in all its technical detail, as well as activities in the fields of outdoor noise regulation and machine safety standards, including the drafting of a new standard for machine visibility”, said Holz.

CECE calls on EU legislators to conclude the engine emissions file for non-road mobile machinery very soon. 2015 was the target date for a final agreement between the EU Parliament and EU Council but discussions are still on-going. CECE is worried about a potential delay and calls on the negotiators to stick to the original planning as closely as possible. The Stage V introduction dates are challenging for construction equipment manufacturers and companies need urgently a final document to facilitate the production of new-stage machines in a secured manner. European engine emissions limits will soon be the strictest worldwide.
