The CIVD Technology Department is committed to political issues relating to technology, the environment, safety and standardisation of the caravanning industry.
The participation of many specialists from CIVD member companies has helped in coordinating industry-relevant stances in the CIVD committees and working groups. The Technology and Environment Department is the interface for all technology and technical permit issues, environmental policy, and technical business questions.
With the progress of European integration and the associated expansion of regulatory authority on the part of European institutions, the Commission and the European Parliament will become ever more significant partners in the EU legislative process. The importance of the European Caravan Federation ECF, the European umbrella organization of the CIVD, is therefore growing steadily.
