COUNCIL REGULATION (EEC) No 1841/88

of 21 June 1988

amending Regulation (EEC) No 3164/76 on the Community quota for the carriage of goods by road between Member States

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, and in particular Article 75 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission (1),

Having regard to the opinion of the European Parliament (2),

Having regard to the opinion of the Economic and Social Committee (3),

Whereas the Council confirms its intention to bring into being by 1 January 1993 both a free market in the intra-Community carriage of goods by road without quantitative restrictions and necessary implementing measures;

Whereas, following the judgment of the Court of Justice of 22 May 1985 in Case 13/83 (4) and the conclusions adopted on 28 and 29 June 1985 by the European Council concerning the Commission communication on the completion of the internal market, the Council, at its meetings on 14 November 1985, 30 June 1986 and 25 June 1987, recorded its agreement to the creation of a single market in the international carriage of goods by road without quantitative restrictions by 1992 at the latest, as well as to the elimination of distortions of competition and to finding a solution to the problems of Community transit caused by third countries in order to avoid discriminating among the hauliers of the various Member States;

Whereas, so as to facilitate progressive transition to a single market in 1992, it is necessary to fix at present the increase of the Community quota for 1988 and 1989;

Whereas for 1989 the method of allocating among the Member States the number of authorizations resulting from the increase in the Community quota should be simplified by allocating those authorizations on a wholly across-the-board basis, without prejudice to the method to be applied subsequently;

Whereas it is necessary to decide already in this Regulation on the introduction on 1 January 1993 of the definitive arrangements for access to the market in the international carriage of goods by road in the Community, in order to make it possible for transport undertakings to adapt to the new market organization in good time;

Whereas Regulation (EEC) No 3164/76 (5), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1879/87 (6), should be amended accordingly,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Regulation (EEC) No 3164/76 is hereby amended as follows:

1. The title is replaced by the following:

'Council Regulation (EEC) No 3164/76 of 16 December 1976 on access to the market in the international carriage of goods by road'.

2. Article 3 is replaced by the following text:

'Article 3

A report on the effects of previous increases including the allocation of the Community quota is to be attached to the proposal.

4. In addition, before 31 March 1990 the Council will decide, on a Commission proposal to be submitted before 31 December 1989, on the arrangements to apply to transport between Member States in transit through non-member countries without discriminating between transporters from different Member States.

5. If the growth in goods road haulage capacity between the Member States subject to a Community or bilateral quota proves to be insufficient in relation to the growth in demand for haulage, the Commission shall decide on an appropriate increase in the Community quota, over and above the annual increase.

The Commission's decision shall be enforceable two months after its notification to the Member States, unless the matter has been referred to the Council by a Member State in the meantime. In that case the Council shall take a decision by a qualified majority within three months. Failing a decision by the Council, the Commissions's decision shall remain enforceable.'
