This European Standard was developed to define an architecture within guidelines from CEN/TC 278 through which a level of interoperability can be achieved between Systems Operating Centres (SOC) and Law Enforcement Agencies (LEA), both nationally and internationally. This European Standard offers minimum standards of information and assurance to users as to the functionality of systems, thereby enabling the recovery of vehicles, detection of offenders and a reduction in crime. This European Standard refers to the potential development of systems to enable law enforcement agencies to remotely slow and/or stop the engines of stolen vehicles. This situation remains. Further information is available in 2012 CEN publication N2643 Feasibility Report on Remote Slow and Stop Technology, available from CEN/TC 278.
