Netherlands Enterprise Agency, RVO

Effective date: 1 August 2021

What changes?

Do you submit tenders to the government? And does this public procurement procedure specify a demand for vehicles? Every contracting authority is required to make sure part of the vehicles to purchase is clean. This obligation also applies to the contracting of services if cars are necessary to carry out the service. A number of cars used to supply the service should be clean as well.

This means that governmental contracting agencies will be buying electric cars more often or that the contracted service will be more often carried out using electric cars.

For whom?

  • passenger transport operators
  • public transport operators
  • companies collecting waste
  • mail and parcel carriers
  • electric vehicles dealers

When?

The implementation of the European Clean Vehicles Directive has come into force on 1 August 2021.
