The Mobility – Safety – Road Management Division represented Belgium in a joint OECD/International Transport Forum working group on Heavy Vehicles. The mandate of this group was to assess the performance of heavy vehicles in the context of the constantly increasing demand for goods transport by road. It examined the safety and environmental impacts of those vehicles, and made an inventory of existing regulatory measures and enforcement practices. The report of the working group describes, among other things, possible technical solutions using performance-based standards (PBS).
