The European Commission (EC) has decided to bring Poland before the European Court of Justice, saying it is discriminating against imported used cars which have to go to local inspection stations before their first-time registration here, unlike similar domestic vehicles.
The EC says this makes life hard for users of imported second-hand cars, a barrier that hinders the free flow of goods within the EU.
The EC had been trying to make Poland change the rules accordingly, but to no purpose. If Poland loses the case, and the offending regulation has not been amended, the country will face punitive measures.
