In-Car Data

Workgroup lead: Dirk-Marco Adams <>

This CARA workgroup defines a standpoint regarding the access and use rights to in-car generated data from vehicles owned, operated and/or traded by CARA members and the framework conditions needed to support the fleet and remarketing business.

The access to in-car data to the remarketing value chain delivers savings for consumers and enterprises, enhances competition, supports environmental goals of emission reduction, raises values of used assets to support the circular economy approach while ensuring consumers freedom of choice on data privacy.

You may read all about it in the CARA Europe Position Paper regarding In-Car Data.

CARA has responded to the European Commission’s public consultation of March 29, 2022 on the revision of the Union legislation on vehicle type approval (Regulation (EU) 2018/858) with regard to access to in-vehicle generated data for the purpose of providing vehicle-related and mobility service.
