Question for written answer E-001351-19
to the Commission
Rule 130

 Subject:  Brexit contingency plans for motor insurance on the island of Ireland
 Answer in writing 

The Green Card is an authorisation issued within the 48 countries covered by the Council of Bureaux for motor insurance, which is responsible for managing the Green Card system as well as overseeing the implementation of the Motor Insurance Directive. The Green Card may be required to prove that insurance cover is in place for vehicles travelling between these countries, where alternative legislative provisions are not in place. The default position is that Green Cards are required for vehicles entering the EU from third countries, unless the Commission declares otherwise.

In the context of Brexit, how can the Commission ensure that drivers from the North or South of Ireland travelling across the border will not be required to hold a Green Card?

Has the Commission made any contingency plans in this regard?
