(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular Article 91(1) thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the European Commission,

After transmission of the draft legislative act to the national parliaments,

Having regard to the opinion of the European Economic and Social Committee(1),

Having regard to the opinion of the Committee of the Regions(2),

Acting in accordance with the ordinary legislative procedure(3),

Whereas:

(1)  Experience with the implementation of Regulations (EC) No 1071/2009(4) and (EC) No 1072/2009(5) revealed that the rules provided for in those regulations offered scope for improvement on a number of points.

(2)  So far, and unless otherwise provided for in national law, the rules on access to the occupation of road transport operator do not apply to undertakings engaged in the occupation of road haulage operator solely by means of motor vehicles with a permissible laden mass, including that of trailers, not exceeding 3.5 tonnes or combinations of vehicles not exceeding that limit. The number of such undertakings which are active in both national and international transport operations has been increasing. As a result, several Member States have decided to apply the rules on access to the occupation of road transport operator, provided for in Regulation (EC) No 1071/2009, to those undertakings. In order to avoid possible loopholes and to ensure a minimum level of professionalisation of the sector using motor vehicles with a permissible laden mass not exceeding, including that of trailers, of 2.4 to 3.5 tonnes for international transport by way of common rules, and thus to approximate competitive conditions between all operators, this provision should be deleted, whereas the requirements regarding effective and stable establishment and appropriate financial standing for engagement in the occupation of road transport operator should be rendered mandatory apply equally, while avoiding a disproportionate administrative burden. Since this Regulation only applies to undertakings transporting goods for hire or reward, undertakings performing transport operations for own account are not covered by this provision. [Am. 110]

(2a)  In its impact assessment, the Commission estimates savings for businesses in the range of EUR 2,7 to 5,2 billion in the period 2020-2035. [Am. 111]

(3)  Currently, Member States are entitled to make access to the occupation of road transport operator subject to requirements additional to those specified in Regulation (EC) No 1071/2009. This possibility has not proven to be necessary in order to respond to imperative needs and has led to divergences in respect of such access. It should therefore be abolished.

(4)  It In order to combat the phenomenon of so-called ‘letterbox companies’ and guarantee fair competition and a level playing field in the internal market, clearer establishment criteria, more intensive monitoring and enforcement, and improved cooperation between Member States is necessary. to ensure that Road transport operators established in a Member State should have a real and continuous presence in that Member State and actually conduct their transport business and perform substantial activities from there. Therefore, and in light of experience, it is necessary to clarify and strengthen the provisions regarding the existence of an effective and stable establishment, while avoiding a disproportionate administrative burden. [Am. 112]

(5)  To the extent that access to the occupation depends on the good repute of the undertaking concerned, clarifications are needed as regards the persons whose conduct must be taken into account, the administrative procedures which must be followed and waiting periods in respect of rehabilitation once a transport manager has lost good repute.

(6)  In view of their potential to considerably affect the conditions for fair competition in the road haulage market, serious infringements of national tax rules should be added to the items relevant to the assessment of good repute.

(7)  In view of their potential to considerably affect the road haulage market, as well as the social protection of workers, serious infringements of Union rules on the posting of workers, cabotage and the law applicable to contractual obligations should be added to the items relevant to the assessment of good repute. [Am. 113]

(8)  Given the importance of fair competition in the market, infringements of Union rules relevant to this issue should be taken into account in the assessment of the good repute of transport managers and transport undertakings. The empowerment of the Commission to define the degree of seriousness of relevant infringements should be clarified accordingly.

(9)  National competent authorities have had difficulties identifying the documents which may be submitted by transport undertakings to prove their financial standing, in particular in the absence of certified annual accounts. The rules regarding evidence required to prove financial standing should be clarified.

(10)  Undertakings engaged in the occupation of road haulage operator solely by means of motor vehicles with a permissible laden mass not exceeding, including that of trailers, between 2.4 and 3.5 tonnes or with combinations of vehicles not exceeding that limit and engaged in international transport operations, should have a minimum level of financial standing, to ensure that they have the means to carry out operations on a stable and long-lasting basis. However, since the operations concerned conducted with these vehicles are generally of a limited size, the corresponding requirements should be less demanding than those applicable to operators using vehicles or combinations of vehicles above that limit. [Am. 114]

(11)  The information about transport operators contained in the national electronic registers should be as complete as possible and up-to-date to allow national authorities in charge of enforcing the relevant rules to have a sufficient overview of the operators being investigated. In particular, information regarding the registration number of the vehicles at the disposal of operators, the number of employees they hire, and their risk rating and their basic financial information should allow a better national and cross-border enforcement of the provisions of Regulations(EC) No 1071/2009 and (EC) No 1072/2009, as well as other relevant Union legislations. Furthermore, in order to provide enforcement officials, including those performing roadside checks, with a clear and complete overview of the transport operators being checked, they should have direct and real-time access to all relevant information. Therefore, the national electronic registers should be truly interoperable and the data contained therein should be directly and in real-time accessible to all designated enforcement officials of all Member States. The rules on the national electronic register should therefore be amended accordingly. [Am. 115]

(12)  The definition of the most serious infringement concerning exceeding the daily driving time, as provided for in Annex IV of Regulation (EC) No 1071/2009, does not fit the existing relevant provision laid down in Regulation (EC) No 561/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council(6). That inconsistency leads to uncertainty and diverging practices among national authorities and ensuing difficulties in the enforcement of the rules in question. That definition should therefore be clarified to ensure consistency between the two Regulations.

(13)  The rules on national transport performed on a temporary basis by non-resident hauliers in a host Member State ('cabotage') should be clear, simple and easy to enforce, while broadly maintaining the level of liberalisation achieved so far. [Am. 116]

(14)  In order to avoid empty runs, cabotage operations should be allowed, subject to specific restrictions, in the host Member State. To this end, and in order to facilitate checks and to eliminate uncertainty, the limitation on the number of cabotage operations subsequent to an international carriage should be abolished, while the number of days available for such operations should be reduced. [Am. 117]

(14a)  In order to prevent cabotage operations from being carried out on a systematic basis, which could create a permanent or continuous activity that distorts the national market, the period available for cabotage operations in one host Member State should be reduced. In addition, hauliers should not be allowed to carry out new cabotage operations in the same host Member State within a certain time period and until they have performed a new international carriage originating from the Member State where the undertaking is established. This provision is without prejudice to the performance of international transport operations. [Am. 118]

(15)  Effective and efficient enforcement of the rules is a prerequisite for fair competition in the internal market. Further digitalisation of enforcement tools is essential in order to free up enforcement capacity, reduce unnecessary administrative burden on international transport operators and in particular SMEs, better target high-risk transport operators and detect fraudulent practices. In order for transport documents to become paperless, the use of electronic documents should in the future become the rule, particularly the electronic consignment note under the Convention on the Contract for the International Carriage of Goods by Road (eCMR). The means by which road transport operators can prove compliance with the rules for cabotage operations should be clarified. The use and transmission of electronic transport information should be recognised as such means, which should simplify the provision of relevant evidence and its treatment by the competent authorities. The format used for that purpose should ensure reliability and authenticity. Considering the increasing use of efficient electronic exchange of information in transport and logistics, it is important to ensure coherence in the regulatory frameworks and provisions addressing the simplification of administrative procedures. [Am. 119]

(15a)  The swift introduction of the smart tachograph is of paramount importance, as it will enable enforcement authorities carrying out roadside checks to detect infringements and abnormalities quicker and more efficiently, which would result in better enforcement of this Regulation. [Am. 120]

(16)  Transport undertakings are the addressees of the rules on international carriage and are, as such, subject to the consequences of any infringements committed by them. However, in order to prevent abuses by undertakings contracting transport services from road haulage operators, Member States should also provide for sanctions on consignors, shippers, and freight forwarders in case they knowingly commission , contractors and subcontractors where they know that the transport services which that they commission involve infringements of the provisions of Regulation (EC) No 1072/2009. When undertakings contracting transport services commission those services from transport undertakings with a low risk rating, their liability should be reduced. [Am. 121]

(16a)   The proposed European Labour Authority aims at supporting and facilitating the cooperation and exchange of information between national competent authorities, with a view to the effective enforcement of relevant Union law. In supporting and facilitating the enforcement of this Regulation, the Authority may play an important role in assisting the exchange of information between competent authorities, in supporting Member States in capacity building through staff exchange and training, and in assisting Member States in organizing concerted checks. This would strengthen the mutual trust between Member States, improve effective cooperation between competent authorities and help fighting fraud and abuse of the rules. [Am. 122]

(16b)   Road transport legislation should be reinforced to ensure a good application and enforcement of the ROME I regulation in a way that labour contracts reflect the habitual place of work of employees. Complementary to, and directly linked with ROME I Regulation are the fundamental rules of Regulation (EC) No 1071/2009 intended to fight letterbox companies and to ensure proper establishment criteria of companies. These rules need to be strengthened to guarantee the rights of employees when temporarily working outside their country of habitual work, and to ensure fair competition between transport undertakings. [Am. 123]

(17)  Insofar as this Regulation introduces a degree of harmonisation in certain areas so far not harmonised by Union law, in particular in respect of transport with light commercial vehicles and enforcement practices, its objectives, namely to approximate conditions of competition and improve enforcement,cannot be sufficiently achieved by the Member States but can rather, by reason of the nature of the objectives pursued in combination with the cross-border nature of road transport, be better achieved at Union level. Therefore, the Union may adopt measures, in line with the principle of subsidiarity as set out in Article 5 of the Treaty on European Union. In accordance with the principle of proportionality, as set out in that Article, this Regulation does not go beyond what is necessary to achieve the objectives pursued.

(18)  In order to take into account market developments and technical progress the power to adopt acts in accordance with Article 290 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union should be delegated to the Commission to amend Annexes I, II and III to Regulation (EC) No 1071/2009, to supplement that Regulation by drawing up a list of categories, types and degrees of seriousness of serious infringements which, in addition to those set out in Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 1071/2009, may lead to the loss of good repute and to amend Annexes I, II and III to Regulation (EC) No 1072/2009. It is of particular importance that the Commission carry out appropriate consultations during its preparatory work, including at expert level, and that those consultations be conducted in line with the principles laid down in the Interinstitutional Agreement on Better Law-Making of 13 April 2016(7). In particular, to ensure equal participation in the preparation of delegated acts, the European Parliament and the Council should receive all documents at the same time as Member States' experts, and their experts should systematically have access to the Commission's expert groups meetings dealing with the preparation of delegated acts.

(19)  Regulation (EC) No 1071/2009 and Regulation (EC) No 1072/2009 should therefore be amended accordingly,
