Notice concerning a request in accordance with Article 30 of Directive 2004/17/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council

Request from a Member State

(2008/C 29/10)

On 17 January 2008, the Commission received a request under Article 30(4) of Directive 2004/17/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (1). The first working day after receipt of the request was 18 January 2008.

The request, made by Italy, concerns national and international express courier services in that country. Article 30 provides that the Directive does not apply where the activity in question is directly exposed to competition on markets to which access is not limited. This is to be assessed solely for the purposes of the Directive, without prejudice to the application of competition rules.

The Commission is allowed a period of three months from the working day referred to above to take a decision on this request. This period therefore expires on 18 April 2008.

The provisions of the third subparagraph of the abovementioned paragraph 4 are applicable. Consequently, the period allowed to the Commission may be extended by one month. Any such extension must be published.


(1)  OJ L 134, 30.4.2004, p. 1. Directive as amended by Commission Regulation (EC) No 1874/2004 (OJ L 326, 29.10.2004, p. 17).
