PR(08)67: Liechtenstein fails to implement a Directive on social legislation relating to road transport


The EFTA Surveillance Authority has decided to deliver a reasoned opinion to Liechtenstein for failure to ensure implementation of a Directive on social legislation relating to road transport[1]. The Directive should have been implemented by 1 May 2008. 

The Directive shall ensure that the social rules on road transport are properly applied throughout the EEA by establishing common, minimum requirements for uniform checks, both at the roadside and at premises of undertakings of all transport categories.

Delivering a reasoned opinion is the second stage in infringement proceedings. The EFTA Surveillance Authority may decide to bring the matter before the EFTA Court if Liechtenstein fails to take satisfactory measures within three months of receiving the reasoned opinion.
