IRU Position on ECMT multilateral permit system (2011)
The ECMT multilateral permit system is experiencing serious problems due to dramatic changes in Europe and the imbalanced allocation of the quota among ITF member states. This IRU Position appeals to the International Transport Forum, which operates the ECMT system, and to competent national government agencies, to undertake the necessary reform of the ECMT multilateral permit system to meet the needs of trade and international road transport. The reform should ensure an efficient use and balanced distribution of the quota of ECMT permits by ITF member states to international fleet operators in all member countries concerned, while guaranteeing the ECMT system’s proper functioning, without market distortion.
