The European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme funded in 2018-2021 the project ANTICSS – Anti-Circumvention of Standards for better market Surveillance conducted by 19 partners of eight countries, coming from research organisations, Energy Agencies, Market Surveillance Authorities (MSAs), test laboratories and NGOs. Triggered by the diesel scandal, in which vehicles contained a certain defeat device that guaranteed compliance with emission limits during the test conditions while emissions in practice were much higher, the main objective of the ANTICSS project was a thorough investigation on whether such manipulations are also possible under EU ecodesign and energy labelling legislation, including capacity building and mitigation measures.
