18 Jan UETR welcomes the further extension of certificates and licenses in road transport
UETR welcomes the further extension by another seven months of the validity of certificates and licenses in road transport, proposed today by the European Commission.
“This is a very positive move” said UETR President Julio Villaescusa. “As the COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold, a coordinated EU support is more critical than ever. The crisis has hit hard on the European small businesses. These are concrete measures addressing practical problems encountered by our haulers. The extension of professional certificates and licenses is key to allow operators to continue delivering goods” he added.
UETR hopes that the EU Council and Parliament will adopt the Commission’s proposal as urgently as possible.
UETR also calls on EU institutions for a concrete Contingency roadmap out of this crisis, in line with the vaccine rollout.
