The regulator said BMW had failed to provide information relating to its investigation into the recycling of cars and vans.
The investigation, launched in March, relates to arrangements for recycling old or written-off vehicles – known as end-of-life vehicles. These vehicles must be disposed of in a sustainable way and regulations require manufacturers to offer customers a free service to do so. The CMA is also looking at the use of recycled materials in BMW’s cars and how well they can be recycled.
It is understood the conduct under review includes car firms collectively agreeing to limit public statements about how recyclable their cars are or how much recycled material goes into them when they are made.
Why in buggery does some regulator try to track the steel or copper scrap industries? Olf steel is worth money, old copper is worth money. So, they get recycled, because they’re worth money. Why does some cretinous bureaucrat need to track that?
