Consumption data will now also be recorded during the Pickerl check.
There is another change in the Pickerl inspection: in the course of the assessment, according to §57a, consumption data must be recorded from May 20, 2023.
According to the automobile club ÖAMTC, diesel, gasoline, hybrid, and plug-in hybrid passenger cars, as well as light trucks with initial registration as of January 1, 2021, and exhaust class “6d” or “6e” (as of fall 2023) are affected. The data is sent to the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change and forwarded to the European Environment Agency.
The readout runs via a software interface in the vehicle. This is to determine whether the consumption values measured during vehicle approval are being adhered to. ÖAMTC drew attention to the fact that reading out the data could also be refused. “A refusal has no effect on the §57a appraisal – you still get a Pickerl,” it said in a statement. The ARBÖ criticized Thursday. “For the pure collection of consumption data per vehicle model, it would have been sufficient to transmit the first eleven digits of a chassis number,” it said in a dispatch. However, this was not the case, which made anonymization impossible.
