COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2017/2205

of 29 November 2017

on detailed rules concerning the procedures for the notification of commercial vehicles with major or dangerous deficiencies identified during a technical roadside inspection

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Directive 2014/47/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 3 April 2014 on the technical roadside inspection of the roadworthiness of commercial vehicles circulating in the Union and repealing Directive 2000/30/EC (1), and in particular Article 18(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

In accordance with Article 18(1) of Directive 2014/47/EU, in cases where, inter alia, major or dangerous deficiencies are identified in a vehicle not registered in the Member State of inspection, the contact point is required to notify the results of the inspection to the contact point of the Member State where the vehicle is registered. The notification shall contain the elements of the roadside inspection report set out in its Annex IV, which has to be drawn up by the inspector on completion of a more detailed inspection in accordance with Article 16(2) of Directive 2014/47/EU.

(2)

In order to facilitate communication between the national contact points, the Commission is required to adopt detailed rules for the implementation of the notification procedure.

(3)

In accordance with Article 18(1) of Directive 2014/47/EU, the notification shall preferably be communicated through the national electronic register referred to in Article 16 of Regulation (EC) No 1071/2009 of the European Parliament and the Council (2).

(4)

Article 16(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1071/2009 specifies the mandatory minimum content of the national electronic registers. However, the elements of the roadside inspection report as set out in Annex IV to Directive 2014/47/EU do not form part of that mandatory minimum content.

(5)

Article 16(5) of Regulation (EC) No 1071/2009 provides that the national electronic registers are to be interconnected.

(6)

Due to the limited scope of Article 16(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1071/2009 and the resulting limited scope of the European Registers of Road Transport Undertakings' (ERRU) system, the notification set out in Article 18(1) of Directive 2014/47/EU cannot be transmitted via the national electronic registers using that system.

(7)

However in order to avoid unnecessary administrative burdens and costs, the system architecture of ERRU should be used to develop the messaging system for the notification stipulated by Article 18(1) of Directive 2014/47/EU.

(8)

The common rules for the interconnection via ERRU are established in Commission Regulation (EU) No 1213/2010 (3).

(9)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/480 (4) will introduce significant amendments to the general functionalities of ERRU and replace Regulation (EU) No 1213/2010 as of 30 January 2019. The messaging system used for the roadside inspection (RSI) notification will be built on the general functionalities of ERRU.

(10)

In order to limit administrative burdens and procedures and to ensure coherence it is therefore necessary that the messaging system used for notifications following a RSI also becomes applicable as of 30 January 2019.

(11)

The provisions on personal data protection, as laid down in particular by Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and the Council (5), apply to the processing of any personal data pursuant to Directive 2014/47/EU. In particular, Member States should implement appropriate security measures to prevent misuse of personal data.

(12)

Where applicable, the provisions on personal data protection, as laid down by Regulation (EC) No 45/2001 of the European Parliament and of the Council (6) apply to the processing of any personal data pursuant to Directive 2014/47/EU.

(13)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are adopted in accordance with the opinion of the Committee set up by Article 19(1) of Directive 2014/45/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council (7),

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
