Rail passengers' rights and obligations in the EU

27-05-2019

In 2007, the EU established a set of basic rights for rail passengers, which became applicable at the end of 2009. These rights provided for all passengers, including those with reduced mobility, a harmonised minimum level of protection, information and assistance. While the implementation of these rights has generally been smooth, recent reports have concluded that this is not done uniformly across the EU. Moreover, other shortcomings have prevented these rights from being used to their full potential ...

In 2007, the EU established a set of basic rights for rail passengers, which became applicable at the end of 2009. These rights provided for all passengers, including those with reduced mobility, a harmonised minimum level of protection, information and assistance. While the implementation of these rights has generally been smooth, recent reports have concluded that this is not done uniformly across the EU. Moreover, other shortcomings have prevented these rights from being used to their full potential. On 27 September 2017, the European Commission presented a new proposal to address these shortcomings and to strike a new balance between keeping rail operators competitive and providing adequate passenger protection. The EP's Committee on Transport and Tourism responsible for the file, adopted its report on 9 October 2018. The Parliament subsequently adopted its first-reading position by a large majority, in plenary on 15 November 2018. In Council, discussions have yet to reach a conclusion. Once the Council adopts its negotiating position, it will be possible to start trilogue negotiations in the new parliamentary term. Third edition.

Road infrastructure safety management

02-04-2019

On 17 May 2018, the Commission adopted the proposal for a directive amending Directive 2008/96/EC on road infrastructure safety management. The revision was presented together with another legislative proposal on vehicle and pedestrian safety, and with non-legislative initiatives to promote safe mobility.

On 17 May 2018, the Commission adopted the proposal for a directive amending Directive 2008/96/EC on road infrastructure safety management. The revision was presented together with another legislative proposal on vehicle and pedestrian safety, and with non-legislative initiatives to promote safe mobility. The general objective of the proposal, which seeks to address the shortcomings of the existing legislation, is to reduce both road fatalities and serious injuries by improving the safety performance of road infrastructure. It proposes key changes to strengthen road infrastructure safety management procedures and extends the scope of the directive beyond the trans-European transport network (TEN-T). Interinstitutional negogiations (trilogues) concluded on 21 February 2019. The agreed text, endorsed by Coreper and by the Parliament’s TRAN committee, is scheduled for a vote in Parliament’s plenary during April. Second edition. The 'EU Legislation in Progress' briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure.

This is the first time that Romania holds the EU Council Presidency since joining the European Union on 1 January 2007. Romania has a bicameral legislature. The Parliament consists of the Senate (the upper house) having 137 seats and the Chamber of Deputies (the lower house) with 332 seats. The members of both houses are elected by direct, popular vote on the basis of proportional representation to serve four-year terms. The executive branch of the Government is directly or indirectly dependent on the support of the parliament, often expressed through a vote of confidence. The Social Democratic Party (PSD) heads the current governmental alliance with the centre-right Liberal-Democrat Alliance (ALDE). Romania is a semi-presidential republic, with Klaus Iohannis as President in office since November 2014, and the current Prime Minister, Viorica Dancila (PSD), in office since January 2018.

Research for TRAN Committee - Modal shift in European transport: a way forward

29-11-2018

The study provides a comprehensive analysis of the progress and potential of modal shift from road to more sustainable transport modes, with respect to the policy objectives set in the 2011 White Paper on transport. The study focuses both on passenger and freight transport, highlighting main barriers and factors that are hampering a more effective modal shift at EU level, and providing policy recommendations for the way forward.

Improving road infrastructure safety management

13-07-2018

In order to improve the EU road safety and substantially reduce road deaths, several measures were taken at the EU level. A general policy document was adopted in 2010, when the European Commission published the Road Safety Programme 2011-2020. The current revision of the road safety management procedures was triggered by the fact that the progress in the reduction of road fatalities stalled and that the existing road security measures needed to be adapted to changes in mobility resulting from societal ...

In order to improve the EU road safety and substantially reduce road deaths, several measures were taken at the EU level. A general policy document was adopted in 2010, when the European Commission published the Road Safety Programme 2011-2020. The current revision of the road safety management procedures was triggered by the fact that the progress in the reduction of road fatalities stalled and that the existing road security measures needed to be adapted to changes in mobility resulting from societal trends and technological developments. The impact assessment accompanying this proposal clearly explains the problems currently encountered, and proposes adequate solutions. The Commission used different sources to substantiate the impact assessment and also undertook several stakeholder consultation activities. However, some parts of the IA do not entirely follow the requirements of the Better Regulation Guidelines in that it does not set sufficiently specific and time-bound objectives. More detailed information on proportionality and publication of the support study would have also been desirable.

Training of professional drivers

08-03-2018

The revision of existing provisions regarding the training of professional drivers was announced in the 2017 Commission Work Programme (in annex II covering REFIT initiatives). The initiative fits within the general framework regarding professional drivers of trucks and buses, and is closely related to road safety. It is also in line with the Commission’s 2011 Transport white paper and the 2010 communication ‘Towards a European road safety area: policy orientations on road safety 2011-2020’, which ...

It is also in line with the Commission’s 2011 Transport white paper and the 2010 communication ‘Towards a European road safety area: policy orientations on road safety 2011-2020’, which notably sought to improve road safety through the education, training and post licence training of road users. On 1 February 2017, the Commission adopted a legislative proposal to amend Directive 2003/59/EC and Directive 2006/126/EC, with the objective of tackling the main shortcomings identified in the implementation of the existing legislation.

Reisijate õigused

01-02-2018

Ühiste eeskirjade eesmärk on tagada kõigi transpordiliikide kasutajatele vähemalt minimaalne abi reisi pikaajalise hilinemise või tühistamise korral ja kaitsta eelkõige kõige kaitsetumas seisundis reisijaid. Samuti kehtestatakse eeskirjadega hüvitusmehhanismid. Sellele vaatamata on raudtee- või maanteetranspordi valdkonnas võimalik teha arvukalt erandeid ja kohtuvaidlusi esineb sageli.

Ühine transpordipoliitika. Üldpõhimõtted

01-02-2018

Transpordipoliitika on üle 30 aasta kuulunud ELi ühiste poliitikavaldkondade hulka. Samaaegselt transporditurgude konkurentsile avamise ja üleeuroopalise transpordivõrgu loomisega on viimaste aastate jooksul ja 2020. aastat silmas pidades muutunud üha tähtsamaks säästva liikuvuse põhimõte, seda eeskätt transpordisektori järjest suureneva kasvuhoonegaaside heite tõttu, mis ähvardab takistada Euroopa Liidu kliimaeesmärkide täitmist.

Raudteetransport

01-02-2018

ELi raudteetranspordi poliitika eesmärk on luua ühtne Euroopa raudteepiirkond. Kümne aasta jooksul pärast seda, kui raudteetranspordi sektor 2001. aastal konkurentsile avati, võeti vastu kolm õigusaktide paketti ja üks uuesti sõnastatud õigusakt. Neljas pakett, milles nähakse ette ühtse Euroopa raudteepiirkonna loomise lõpuleviimine, võeti vastu 2016. aasta aprillis (tehniline osa) ja detsembris (turgu puudutav osa).

Lennutransport: turueeskirjad

01-02-2018

Ühtse lennundusturu loomine 1990. aastate lõpus muutis põhjalikult lennutransporditööstust ja on suuresti kaasa aidanud lennutranspordi jõulisele kasvule Euroopas viimase kahekümne aasta jooksul.
