  2. Brief presentation of CORTE

  3. Genesis of CORTE • Setting up of an informal group of experts (called for some years • the “EU Enforcers Group) initiated by the EC – DG Tren in 1997 to • deal with enforcement of commercial vehicles • From 1997 to 1999 : definition of control officers’ needs as far as digital tachograph was concerned • From 1999 to 2004 : analysis of the different ways of enforcing Drivers’ Hours Rules throughout Europe and proposals for amending the existing EU texts

  4. 2 – Setting up of CORTE • In 2004, Member States’ enforcement authorities decided to transform their unofficial group of experts into an official one in order: • to develop more formal activities together with the EC, the • UNECE (AETR) and national authorities • to enlarge their activities so that as to cover road safety issues as • well

  5. An international association has been set up in April 2005 • with statutes and rules of order • a Board and a General Assembly • based in Brussels • submitted to Belgian law • expected at mid-term to gather all AETR enforcement authorities • opened to NGOs and industry

  6. Founding members: • - Denmark : National Police • Ireland : Department of Transport • Sweden: Swedish Road Administration (SRA) • UK : Vehicle & Operator Service Agency (VOSA)

  7. 3 - Objectives • The development and agreement of common interpretations in the field of Road Transport Legislation and Enforcement. • To develop harmonised Best Practice enforcement methodologies

  8. Full members: national enforcement authorities and/or regulatory • bodies • Associate members : NGOs • Observers : Industry • 4 – Membership: 3 categories of members

  9. Full members: Belgium Bosnia and Herzegovina Bulgaria Croatia Cyprus Georgia Czech Republic Iceland Denmark Moldova Estonia Montenegro Hungary Norway Finland Serbia Greece Turkey Ireland Ukraine Latvia Luxembourg Malta Romania Slovakia Slovenia Spain Sweden The Netherlands UK 4 → 30 full members

  10. Full members: Objectives: Gather all EU and EEA Member States by the end of 2010 Extend to the AETR countries as soon as possible (by the end of 2011)

  33. We will address: • 1) The legal framework • 2) Implementing the digital tachograph system: the logical steps to • follow • 3) Which support can the AETR countries benefit from?

  34. The legal framework • 1-1: EU rules and their evolution • 1-2: AETR rules • 1-3: Practicalities • 1-4: Consequences of not meeting the AETR deadlines

  35. The legal framework • 1-1: EU rules and their evolution • 1-2: AETR rules • 1-3: Practicalities • 1-4: Consequences of not meeting the AETR deadlines

  36. Considering the constant increase of: • registration of passenger cars • registration of commercial vehicles • as a consequence of this, the constant increase of: • road traffic congestion • road traffic accidents • fatalities and injuries • the number of heavy vehicles involved in fatalities • the EU legislator has decided in 1969 to regulate the professional • drivers’ activities for the very first time. • Regulation (EEC) n° 543/69, Official Journal L 77, page 49 • (see http://europa.eu.int/eur-lex/lex/en/index.htm)

  37. This Regulation aimed mainly at: • limiting driving time allowed by day and by week • obliging professional drivers to record their activities through a • recording equipment called “tachograph” or, alternatively, to use a • kind of booklet First generation of recording equipment In the EU

  38. In the meantime, the EU signed in 1970 under the auspices of the United Nations an agreement called AETR extending the use of the recording equipment to the European but non EU Members (former Eastern countries, former Soviet republics, Balkan countries, etc…) For EU drivers, the use of recording equipment became mandatory including outside the EU whilst for non EU AETR drivers, the use of recording equipment became mandatory for international journeys only The AETR agreement foresees that each change of the recording equipment decided by the EU has to be implemented at AETR level so that each generation of recording equipment, as presented hereinafter, has also been the one used at AETR level

  39. This Regulation changed considerably the drivers’ behaviour But the recording equipment was not yet mandatory in the sense that booklets could be used instead Therefore, to avoid any distortion of competition between transport operators, the EU legislator decided to amend the 1969 Regulation in 1985 and to introduce a recording equipment on a mandatorily basis for every professional driver Except for very few exceptions Regulation (EEC) n° 3821/85, Official Journal L 370, page 8 See http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=CONSLEG:1985R3821:20070411:EN:PDF

  40. This new Regulation: • was much more demanding with drivers (in terms of driving, working, • availability and rest times) • increased the number of data collected by the tachograph through the • charts used to record data (speed, time, distances, names of drivers/ • co-drivers, locations, vehicle registration numbers, etc… have to be • recorded and stored) • introduced new obligations for transport operators (in terms of • breakdown or faulty operation of their tachograph) • introduced more stringent requirements for the repair workshops to • ensure a proper calibration of these recording equipments

  41. Over the time, the recording equipment evolved and from mechanical became electronic First generation Second generation

  42. But both generations are anyway working with paper discs

  43. Nevertheless, it became rapidly clear that analogue tachographs were tampered (paper discs not used, destroyed, withdrawn during journeys, parameters mechanically or electromagnetically altered, etc…). Whereas experience has shown that the economic pressures and competition in road transport have led some drivers employed by road haulage companies to flout certain rules, particularly those concerning the driving and rest times laid down in Council Regulation (EEC) n° 3820/85 of 20 December 1985 on the harmonisation of certain social legislation relating to road transport; Whereas blatant infringements and fraud present a road safety hazard and are unacceptable for reasons of competition for the individual driver who does respect the rules; […] Whereas to put an end to the most common abuses of the present system, it is therefore necessary to introduce new advanced equipment […]; Whereas the total security of the system and its components is essential if recording equipment is to function efficiently; Recitals 2, 3, 6 and 7 of Regulation (EC) n° 2135/98

  44. The EU legislator decided therefore to introduce a new kind of recording equipment Encryption of data

  45. In short: Regulation (EEC) n° 543/69 Regulation (EEC) n° 3821/85 Regulation (EC) n° 2135/98 Commission Regulation …. 2nd generation of digital tachograph system 2011 in the EU

  46. The legal framework • 1-1: EU rules and their evolution • 1-2: AETR rules • 1-3: Practicalities • 1-4: Consequences of not meeting the AETR deadlines

  47. Persons and goods are transported everywhere in Europe To cover these situations, an international agreement has been signed under the auspices of the United Nations on 1 July 1970, known under the acronym AETR. “European Agreement concerning the Work of Crews of Vehicles engaged in International Road Transport” Seehttp://www.unece.org/trans/main/sc1/sc1doc_2004.html

  48. Legislative texts applicable at EU and AETR level: EU AETR Regulation (EC) n° 561/2006 Drivers’ Hours’ rules Regulation (EEC) n° 3821/85 Tachograph rules Annex 1B to Regulation (EEC) n° 3821/85 Digital tachograph and tachograph cards technical specifications AETR Annex to the AETR Appendix 1B to the AETR

  49. At AETR level For the core of the agreement… unanimity is required for any amendment to be adopted
