EU Commission launches procedure against Italy over Fiat emission tests

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Commission launched legal action against Italy on Wednesday for failing to respond to allegations of emission-test cheating by Fiat Chrysler (FCHA.MI), in a procedure that could lead to the country being taken to court.

    “The Commission decided today to send a letter of formal notice asking Italy to respond to concerns about insufficient action taken regarding the emission control strategies employed by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles group (FCA),” the Commission said in a statement.

    Italy now has two months to respond. The Commission may eventually decide to take the country to court if it is not satisfied with the answer.
