The EU Regulatory Framework Applicable to Civil Aviation Security
User rules for new "smart" digital tachographs for trucks and buses were approved by the Transport and Tourism Committee on Tuesday. These devices will use satellite tracking technology to make it easier to check and enforce driving and rest times, whilst reducing the number of roadside checks. The rules now need to be approved by Parliament as a whole and the Council of Ministers.
Plans to introduce EU minimum standards for roadworthiness tests on motorcycles and trailers under 2,000 kg were rejected by the Transport and Tourism Committee on Thursday. These plans are part of the EU "roadworthiness package", which would lay down minimum EU standards on testing frequency, a risk-based system for roadside inspections of commercial vehicles and rules for suspending or cancelling registration certificates. The package still has to be approved by Parliament as a whole.
Revised compensation terms for stranded passengers, as proposed by the Commission, sparked a heated debate between MEPs, airlines and air passenger organisations at Wednesday’s Transport Committee hearing. Rapporteur Georges Bach (EPP, LU) and many other MEPs pointed out the longer delay times before passengers would be entitled to compensation and/or rerouting under the proposal were not acceptable and would be “a step backwards”.
