eCall Devices Compulsory in all New Cars Sold in EU

ecall

Since the 31st March 2018, a requirement for eCall devices to be fitted in all new cars sold in the EU has come in to effect. The devices automatically contact rescue services in the event of a road accident, relaying the time and location of the crash. This new requirement is a measure designed to reduce the response times of emergency services.

To address concerns about privacy in relation to compulsory tracking devices, the European Commission have released a disclaimer.
