The need for efficient enforcement during deconfinement

29 May 2020 · Prosperity

Road transport is the backbone of global trade and the economy with enforcement authorities playing a pivotal role in ensuring compliance and safety on the road.

Since the outbreak of the pandemic, the enforcement of road transport rules has been reduced to a minimum due to many emergency measures and national exemptions on rules and regulations. This situation has led to a complicated patchwork of rules within the EU, making compliance and enforcement complex across the different Member States. 

In this context, IRU invited key EU enforcement organisations – CORTE, Euro Control Route and the European Roads Policing Network, as well as the European Transport Workers’ Federation, to work together. Our goal: create best practices for an efficient enforcement as long as temporary restrictions on the movement of people and goods remain in place.
