Transport: Iceland fails to incorporate Regulation adapting technical specifications for recording equipment used in road transport - PR(10)42


The Authority has today sent a final warning to Iceland for failure to incorporate a Regulation[1] adapting the technical specifications for recording equipment used in road transport into their national legal order. Iceland should have incorporated the Regulation no later than 5 December 2009.

The amendments to the technical specifications introduced by the Regulation are considered as updates to technical progress. The recording equipment, which most heavy vehicles in commercial transport must have installed, is a very important tool in the supervison and enforcement of drivers compliance with the social rules in road transport (rules on driving time and rest periods).

Delivering this final warning, a reasoned opinion, is the second stage of infringement proceedings. The Authority may decide to bring matters before the EFTA Court if Iceland fails to take satisfactory measures within two months of receiving the reasoned opinion.
