COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 6/2003

of 30 December 2002

concerning the dissemination of statistics on the carriage of goods by road

(Text with EEA relevance)



THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1172/98 of 25 May 1998 on statistical returns in respect of the carriage of goods by road ( 1 ), and in particular Articles 6 and 9 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

It is appropriate to exploit the statistical data on the carriage of goods by road, referred to in the Regulation (EC) No 1172/98, as fully as possibly while respecting the confidentiality of the individual data records.

(2)

It is necessary to ensure a reasonable level of quality in the information disseminated and the maintenance of existing statistical series.

(3)

It is necessary to make certain data available to Member States in order to complete the statistical coverage of road transport at national level.

(4)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion delivered by the Statistical Programme Committee,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:



Article 1

The individual data records transmitted to the Commission (Eurostat) by Member States in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1172/98 shall be used to compile statistical tables containing aggregated values obtained by summation of the underlying data. The Commission (Eurostat) shall disseminate the resulting statistical tables in accordance with the provisions laid down in Articles 2 and 3.

Article 2

The dissemination shall be authorised for the statistical tables listed in the Annex.

Article 3

1.  Dissemination of tables to users other than the national authorities of Member States shall be subject to the condition that each cell shall be based on at least 10 vehicle records depending on the variable tabulated. Where a cell is based on fewer than 10 vehicle records, it shall be aggregated with other cells, or replaced with a suitable flag. Tables referred to under point A of the Annex shall be excluded from this rule.

2.  Tables including aggregated values based on fewer than 10 vehicle records may be supplied to national authorities responsible for Community transport statistics in Member States, on condition that the national authorities apply the condition set out in paragraph 1 to any tables disseminated to other users.

Article 4

This Regulation shall enter into force on the 20th day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Communities.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Note 2:  The following measures are calculated internally for all tables:

Movements (laden, empty)

Number of vehicle records used to calculate the table cell

This column indicates the measures that will normally be offered to users. Other measures and units may be disseminated, if requested by users.

According to users’ needs, the tables may be based on journey related variables (information from A2 data sets) or on goods related operations (information from A3 data sets) (see Regulation (EC) No 1172/98). Movements would therefore be labelled either as number of journeys or as number of basic transport operations. Transit movements would be labelled as such.

Note 3:  Type of operation is broken down as follows:

National journey: places of loading and unloading, both in reporting country

International journey: places of loading or unloading, or both, in countries other than the reporting country (= sum of the four following categories)

(of which)

outward (goods loaded in reporting country): journey starts in reporting country, ends elsewhere

inward (goods unloaded in reporting country): journey starts elsewhere, ends in reporting country

cross-trade: journey between two countries other than the reporting country

cabotage: journey between places within a country other than the reporting country.

Note 4:  Data by loading or unloading region are published at NUTS-3 level.

Note 5:  For national transport, loading and unloading places are published at NUTS-2 level.

Note 6:  For international transport, loading and unloading places are published at NUTS-1 level.

C.    Tables on cabotage

In order to provide information on cabotage equivalent to that available under Council Regulation (EEC) No 3118/93 ( 2 ), the following set of tables and subsets of these tables may be disseminated:
