Answer given by Mr Oettinger on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-001964/2019

Working conditions of EU officials are governed by Title IV of the EU Staff Regulations as last amended by the European Parliament and the Council in 2013(1). The latter notably set rules regarding hours of work which are equivalent to the standards established in the Working Time Directive(2). As regards the drivers employed by the Commission, to take account of the particular tasks they perform the Commission adopted a specific working time regime which is also in line with the Working Time Directive. For instance, the weekly timetable of a Commission driver, including overtime, may not exceed 48 hours. Overtime performed by Commission drivers is compensated financially on the basis of a special flat-rate allowance.

(1)Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 1023/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 October 2013.
