Requirement that Member States record statistics on bodily damage caused by road traffic accidents taking place on their territory (collision between users involving at least one vehicle and causing deaths or injuries).
Requirement that the Member States pass on those data each year to the Statistical Office of the European Communities (Eurostat).
Requirement that the Commission ensures that the data received are disseminated and that the base functions properly (conditions attached to access to statistics, any publications, etc.) in cooperation with the Committee for the statistical programme.
