Questions referred

1.

Against the background of Article 1(5) of Council Regulation (EEC) No 3820/85 (1) of 20 December 1985 on the harmonisation of certain social legislation relating to road transport and of Article 15 of Council Regulation (EEC) No 3821/85 (2) of 20 December 1985 on recording equipment in road transport, how must the term ‘operating centre,’ as referred to in paragraph 21, and elsewhere, of the judgment of the Court of Justice in Case C-297/99 Skills Motor Coaches Ltd [2001] ECR I-573, be interpreted?

2.

For the assessment as to what constitutes rest for the purposes of Article 1(5) of Council Regulation (EEC) No 3820/85 of 20 December 1985 on the harmonisation of certain social legislation relating to road transport, does it make any difference whether the driver concerned drives himself to a place where he is to take over a vehicle in which a tachograph must be installed or is driven there by someone else?
