VDA Position
    With the European Council's endorsement of the General Approach on July 13, 2023, and the ITRE Committee's report adoption on July 19, 2023, the co-legislators have now articulated their positions regarding the EU Commission's proposal for the Cyber Resilience Act. Ger- man automotive industry is aligned with the European Union's ambition to comprehensively enhance Europe's cyber resilience by imposing cybersecurity requirements on all products containing digital components. As we approach the interinstitutional negotiations, German automotive industry urges policymakers to uphold the principles of proportionality and practicality in these requirements. Instead of introducing overarching bureaucratic demands, the co-legislators should aim for risk-based solutions that significantly boost Europe's cyber resilience.
