on the position to be adopted, on behalf of the European Union, within the Joint Committee established under the Agreement on the international occasional carriage of passengers by coach and bus (Interbus Agreement), as regards draft Decision No 1/2016 of that Committee

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular Article 91 in conjunction with Article 218(9) thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the European Commission,

Whereas:

(1)

The Agreement on the international occasional carriage of passengers by coach and bus (Interbus Agreement) (1) (the ‘Agreement’) entered into force on 1 January 2003.

(2)

In accordance with point (b) of Article 24(2) of the Agreement, the Joint Committee amends or adapts the control documents and other models of documents established in the Annexes to the Agreement. In order to incorporate future measures taken within the Union, and in accordance with point (c) of Article 24(2) of the Agreement, the Joint Committee amends or adapts the Annexes concerning technical standards applying to buses and coaches, as well as Annex 1 regarding the conditions applying to road passenger transport operators. In accordance with point (e) of Article 24(2) of the Agreement, the Joint Committee also amends or adapts the requirements concerning the social provisions. To this end the Joint Committee should act when the Agreement needs to be updated to take account of technical and legislative progress.

(3)

The last update of Union legislation in the Agreement, which was introduced by Decision No 1/2011 of the Joint Committee (2), takes into account Union acts adopted until the end of 2009. It is now appropriate to incorporate new measures that the Union has adopted since then.

(4)

Recommendation No 1/2011 of the Joint Committee (3) sets out a technical report used for roadside checks of coaches and buses. It has become outdated and should therefore be repealed.

(5)

It is appropriate to establish the position to be adopted on the Union's behalf within the Joint Committee as regards draft Decision No 1/2016 of that Committee.
