Transport The broader enforcement policy Making enforcement strategies more cost-effective and harmonised in road transport is one of the priorities of the 2011 Transport White Paper. It is of crucial importance for a more integrated road transport market; A lot of progress has been done and continue to be done in the area of the enforcement of social rules and tachograph legislation; Since 2009, progress is also being done on the enforcement of the legislation on access to profession and of other EU rules.
Transport Outstanding ERRU-related issues to be addressed in the short term Envisaged follow-up for questions of interpretations : Most serious infringements of Annex IV and distribution of responsibilities between drivers and transport undertakings. The Commission will discuss with MS whether a common guidance note on the issue can help. Administrative procedures leading to the loss of good repute. While leaving a margin of appreciation to MS, the legislator has provided for a monitoring and benchmarketing mechanism. Two meetings with MS: ERRU WG of 15 November and Infringement WG on 10 December. ECR/TISPOL/IRU invited as observers. MS have to fulfill their legal obligations as from 31 December 2012
Transport Next steps The European Parliament and the Council have asked the Commission to draw a report on the state of the EU road transport market by 2013 the internal market, including an assessment of the enforcement systems of Member States. Possible initiative to take stock of progress made and identify possible steps to further reduce discrepancies between enforcement systems, e.g. in the area of sanctions. It includes the definition of the serious infringements for all the areas regulated at EU levels (in addition to the most serious infringements defined in Annex IV of Regulation 1071/2009).
