Euro 7 Strategy Panel at EuroBrake

STANSTEAD, U.K. – EuroBrake Strategy Panel 2023: Effects of the Euro 7 (EU7) regulation on brake system development and homologation will be a major program at the upcoming EuroBrake 2023 Sept. 12 – 14 in Barcelona.

The new Euro 7 standards rules will be the first worldwide emission standards to move beyond regulating exhaust pipe emissions and set additional limits for particulate emissions from brakes and rules on microplastic emissions from tires. These rules will apply to all vehicles, including electric ones.

The panel will discuss the following:

  • How does the braking industry interpret EU7?
  • The necessary contributions to the solution and challenges
  • The planned procedure for the homologation of new vehicles
  • How to deal with the aftermarket situation
  • Further legislative outlooks – Globalization (Asia and Americas) and harmonization of test conditions and limit values

There will be speaker representatives from:

  • OEMs
  • Test institutes and service providers
  • Main component manufacturers of brake discs and brake pads
  • EU Commission representative

Poster session
