On-Board Diagnostics Symposium-Europe

March 14-16, 2023 | Prague, Czech Republic



Shape the Future of On-Board Monitoring and Calibration Systems

The On-Board Diagnostics Symposium-Europe (OBD-EU) is the industry’s relied-upon resource for regulatory updates and standards reviews for light- and heavy-duty emissions controls. Here, you will immerse yourself with information on the most current and changing global emission rules and regulations, industry drivers, legislative policies & standards, and emerging technologies that are impacting not only the European market, but markets worldwide.

This is your opportunity to unite with forward-thinking OBD-systems engineers from the automotive and commercial vehicle industries, executives, OEMs, regulators, suppliers, government, and more to address the ongoing need for technical and regulatory updates.

“The OBD Symposium is an excellent opportunity to get a perspective on the industry and gain a better understanding of the intent behind existing regulations and upcoming changes.”

Presentation & Abstract:

On-board monitoring of emissions in the future Euro 7 standard.

The new Euro 7 emission standard for light- and heavy- duty vehicles was proposed by the European Commission in November 2022. The Euro 7 proposal foresees that the sensors used up to now for OBD can also be used to monitor and control the emission behaviour of the vehicles via an on-board monitoring (OBM) system. OBM will also warn the user to perform repairs of the engine or the pollution control systems when these are needed. This talk will cover the key aspects of the Euro 7 implementation of OBM, and how it can efficiently support the aims of the new standard.


Vicente Franco, Ph.D. is an industrial engineer.

Since 2016, he has been working as policy officer at the European Commission, first working at the Directorate-General for Environment (Clean Air Unit) on files related to road transport emissions and the effects of air pollution on human health and, since 2022, at the Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (Mobility Unit) on the implementation of on-board monitoring for the Euro 7 pollutant emissions standard. Prior to that, Vicente was a researcher (European Commission Joint Research Centre, 2009-2012; International Council on Clean Transportation, 2013-2016) working on road vehicle emissions measurement and modelling.
