Avis sur la proposition de règlement établissant des règles communes sur les conditions à respecter pour exercer la profession de transporteur par route, JO C 14, 19.01.2008, p. 1
On 12 September 2007, the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) issued his opinion on the Proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing common rules concerning the conditions to be complied with to pursue the occupation of road transport operator.
The regulation establishes conditions relating to good repute, financial standing and professional competence which road transport companies have to satisfy. The proposal introduces national electronic registers that will have to be interconnected between all member states, facilitating the exchange of information between Member States. It contains a specific provision on data protection.
The EDPS advises that the proposed Regulation is amended to:
- ensure greater definition of terms such as "good repute";
- clarify ambiguities in the role of national authorities; and
- ensure the requirements of Directive 95/46/EC are respected.
