Transport: Iceland and Norway fail to incorporate a Regulation on public passenger transport - PR(10)43


The Authority has today sent a final warning to Iceland and Norway for failure to incorporate a Regulation[1] on public passenger transport by road and rail into their national legal order. The Regulation should have been incorporated no later than 3 December 2009.

The purpose of the Regulation is to facilitate the provision of quality and fair priced passenger services on routes not operated on a commercial basis. To achieve its goals, the Regulation sets out how operators can be compensated, and/or be granted exclusive rights, in order to make the running of such services financially sustainable. 

Delivering these final warnings, a reasoned opinion, is the second stage of infringement proceedings. The Authority may decide to bring matters before the EFTA Court if Iceland and/or Norway fail to take satisfactory measures within two months of receiving the reasoned opinion.
