The European Commission has adopted three proposals which will be examined later by the European Parliament and the Council. The first proposal concerns the conditions to be complied with in order to be a road transport operator. The second deals with access to the market for coach and bus services, and the final proposal regulates access to the international road haulage market. According to the Commission, the proposals would strengthen competition, social legislation and road safety rules. In addition, the Commission has already predicted that the new rules would reduce administrative costs by EUR 190 million per year.
