Brief presentation of CORTE




3
  • Genesis of CORTE
  • Setting up of an informal group of experts
    (called for some years
  • the EU Enforcers Group) initiated by the EC DG
    Tren in 1997 to
  • deal with enforcement of commercial vehicles
  • From 1997 to 1999 definition of control
    officers needs as far as digital tachograph was
    concerned
  • From 1999 to 2004 analysis of the different
    ways of enforcing Drivers Hours Rules throughout
    Europe and proposals for amending the existing EU
    texts

4
  • 2 Setting up of CORTE
  • In 2004, Member States enforcement authorities
    decided to transform their unofficial group of
    experts into an official one in order
  • to develop more formal activities together with
    the EC, the
  • UNECE (AETR) and national authorities
  • to enlarge their activities so that as to cover
    road safety issues as
  • well

5
  • An international association has been set up in
    April 2005
  • with statutes and rules of order
  • a Board and a General Assembly
  • based in Brussels
  • submitted to Belgian law
  • expected at mid-term to gather all AETR
    enforcement authorities
  • opened to NGOs and industry

6
  • Founding members
  • - Denmark National Police
  • Ireland Department of Transport
  • Sweden Swedish Road Administration (SRA)
  • UK Vehicle Operator Service Agency (VOSA)

7
  • The development and agreement of common
    interpretations in the field of Road Transport
    Legislation and Enforcement.
  • To develop harmonised Best Practice enforcement

37
  • Considering the constant increase of
  • registration of passenger cars
  • registration of commercial vehicles
  • as a consequence of this, the constant increase
    of
  • road traffic congestion
  • road traffic accidents
  • fatalities and injuries
  • the number of heavy vehicles involved in
    fatalities
  • the EU legislator has decided in 1969 to regulate
    the professional
  • drivers activities for the very first time.
  • Regulation (EEC) n 543/69, Official Journal L
    77, page 49
  • (see http//europa.eu.int/eur-lex/lex/en/index.htm
    )

38
  • This Regulation aimed mainly at
  • limiting driving time allowed by day and by
    week
  • obliging professional drivers to record their
    activities through a
  • recording equipment called tachograph or,
    alternatively, to use a
  • kind of booklet

First generation of recording equipment In the
EU
39
In the meantime, the EU signed in 1970 under the
auspices of the United Nations an agreement
called AETR extending the use of the recording
equipment to the European but non EU Members
(former Eastern countries, former Soviet
republics, Balkan countries, etc) For EU
drivers, the use of recording equipment became
mandatory including outside the EU whilst for non
EU AETR drivers, the use of recording equipment
became mandatory for international journeys
only The AETR agreement foresees that each
change of the recording equipment decided by the
EU has to be implemented at AETR level so that
each generation of recording equipment, as
presented hereinafter, has also been the one
used at AETR level
40
This Regulation changed considerably the drivers
behaviour But the recording equipment was not
yet mandatory in the sense that booklets could
be used instead Therefore, to avoid any
distortion of competition between transport
operators, the EU legislator decided to amend
the 1969 Regulation in 1985 and to introduce a
recording equipment on a mandatorily basis for
every professional driver Except for very few
exceptions Regulation (EEC) n 3821/85, Official
Journal L 370, page 8 See http//eur-lex.europa.eu
/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uriCONSLEG1985R382120
070411ENPDF
41
  • This new Regulation
  • was much more demanding with drivers (in terms
    of driving, working,
  • availability and rest times)
  • increased the number of data collected by the
    tachograph through the
  • charts used to record data (speed, time,
    distances, names of drivers/
  • co-drivers, locations, vehicle registration
    numbers, etc have to be
  • recorded and stored)
  • introduced new obligations for transport
    operators (in terms of
  • breakdown or faulty operation of their
    tachograph)
  • introduced more stringent requirements for the
    repair workshops to
  • ensure a proper calibration of these recording
    equipments

42
Over the time, the recording equipment evolved
and from mechanical became electronic
First generation
Second generation
43
But both generations are anyway working with
paper discs
44
Nevertheless, it became rapidly clear that
analogue tachographs were tampered (paper discs
not used, destroyed, withdrawn during journeys,
parameters mechanically or electromagnetically
altered, etc). Whereas experience has shown
that the economic pressures and competition in
road transport have led some drivers employed by
road haulage companies to flout certain rules,
particularly those concerning the driving and
rest times laid down in Council Regulation (EEC)
n 3820/85 of 20 December 1985 on the
harmonisation of certain social legislation
relating to road transport Whereas blatant
infringements and fraud present a road safety
hazard and are unacceptable for reasons of
competition for the individual driver who does
respect the rules Whereas to put an end
to the most common abuses of the present system,
it is therefore necessary to introduce new
advanced equipment Whereas the total
security of the system and its components is
essential if recording equipment is to function
efficiently Recitals 2, 3, 6 and 7 of
Regulation (EC) n 2135/98
45
The EU legislator decided therefore to introduce
a new kind of recording equipment

When do non EU-AETR countries have to introduce
the digital tachograph system?
55
Article 13 - Transitional provisions 1. All
the new provisions of the present Agreement,
including its Annex and Appendices 1B and 2,
relating to the introduction of a digital control
device, shall become mandatory for countries
which are Contracting Parties to this Agreement
at latest four years after the date of entry
into force of the relevant amendments resulting
from the procedure specified in article 21. In
consequence, all vehicles covered by this
Agreement, put into service for the first time
after the expiry of this period, shall be
equipped with a control device conforming to
these new requirements. ()





Date of adoption of these amendments 16 June 2006
Date of entry into force in the non EU-AETR
countries 16 June 2010
56
Article 13 - Transitional provisions 2. (a)
The Contracting Parties shall take the necessary
steps to be able to issue the driver
cards referred to in the Annex to the present
Agreement, as amended, at latest three months
before the expiry of the four-year deadline
referred to in paragraph 1. This minimum
period of three months shall also be complied
with in the event of the implementation by a
Contracting Party of the provisions relating to
the digital control device in conformity with
Appendix 1B to this Annex before the expiry of
the four-year deadline. ()





Deadline for the introduction of the digital
tachograph in the non EU-AETR countries 16
June 2010
Deadline to issue tachograph cards 16 March 2010
57

What are the transitional measures foreseen
in between today and the deadlines by which non
EU-AETR countries have to introduce the digital
tachograph system on their territory?




58
Article 14 1. Pursuant to article 13, paragraph
2 (b) of the Agreement, drivers who are driving a
vehicle registered in a Contracting Party and to
whom the competent authorities have not yet been
able to issue the driver cards and who, during
the transitional period referred to in paragraph
1 of this article, drive in international traffic
with a vehicle fitted with a digital control
device in accordance with Appendix 1B to the
Annex, must be able to produce, whenever an
inspecting officer so requests, the printouts
and/or the record sheets for the current week
and, in any event, the printout and/or record
sheet for the last day on which he drove during
the previous week.





If a driver has his normal residence in a non
EU-AETR country where cards are not available
and that he has to drive a vehicle fitted with a
digital tachograph
he can lawfully do it as long as that he can
produce printouts
59
BUT printouts are of some use only if
  • the digital tachograph is activated
  • the digital tachograph is properly calibrated
  • WHILST both activation and calibration are
    operations requiring the use
  • of a workshop card
  • which in the present situation is not available
    since this Article
  • addresses cases where
  • a driver is living in a country where cards are
    not available
  • but where he has to drive a vehicle fitted with a
    digital tachograph





60
See printouts





61
  • The legal framework
  • 1-1 EU rules and their evolution
  • 1-2 AETR rules
  • 1-3 Practicalities
  • 1-4 Consequences of not meeting the AETR
    deadlines






62
Practical approach proposed (see
ECE/TRANS/SC.1/2006/8)





63
  • In practise (1)
  • vehicle manufacturers are supposed to NOT
    deliver vehicles
  • with inactivated digital tachographs






Would they comply with this requirement, digital
tachographs should at least be ready to record
(inaccurate?) drivers activities
For various reasons, they often do
They have been duly informed to do some special
efforts towards countries where cards are not
yet available
64
In practise (2)
  • Even if activated, digital tachographs need to
    be calibrated so as,
  • among others, to measure speed and distances
    accurately
  • Calibration, like activation, requires the use
    of a workshop card
  • Proposal tolerate that the first calibration
    (and activation ?) is (are)
  • undertaken during the first journey to or
    through a country where
  • approved workshops have been issued with
    workshop cards
  • - Idem in case of tachograph breakdown






65

Expected place for the (activation and)
calibration to take place
66

Unexpected place for the (activation and)
calibration to take place

  • The legal framework
  • 1-1 EU rules and their evolution
  • 1-2 AETR rules
  • 1-3 Practicalities

68
The two main problems are as follows 1)
Transport operators would use illegal recording
equipments





Data not available for enforcement purposes
Drivers not controllable
Threat for road safety and fair competition
throughout Europe
Prohibition of their vehicles after 16 March/16
June 2010 in the EU/EEA countries?
69
2) Data inaccessible for freight and fleet
management
Data potentially stored in the tachograph
internal memory for one year





Cannot be downloaded without company cards
Printouts would produce anonymous data if any
Potential overall management problems for
transport companies

Card issuing
By Armand BIBERICH (SNCT Luxembourg)
Birgit SÄÄV (STA Sweden) Marja VAN DER
WELLE (Vehicle Inspectorates Netherlands)
74
  • Legal bases for issuing cards
  • Council Regulation (EEC) n 3821/85 of 20
    December 1985 on recording equipment in road
    transport as amended by Council Regulation (EC)
    n 2135/98 of 24 September 1998
  • Commission Regulation (EC) n 1360/2002 of 13
    June 2002

  • transport commonly called Annex IB
  • AETR





75




But What happens in between??
76
How may a Digital Tachograph card issuing system
be implemented?
The implementation of a Card issuing system is a
multi-step process !
  • Its caracteristics are as follows
  • 1) Some steps are unique processes
  • 2) Other steps have to be repeated occasionally
    on a regular basis
  • 3) Finally, some steps have to be repeated for
    every card issued

77
  • The aim of this presentation is threefold
  • to give an overview about the process steps
    involved to set up a
  • Digital Tachograph Card Issuing System,
  • to indicate their chronological order and their
    frequency
  • and to show the responsibility of the actors
    involved

  • Alternative for the control officers to get
    access to the recording
  • equipments and cards data printouts
  • 6 types of print-outs, which can be selected
    through the recording
  • equipment
  • 2 relate to the drivers activities one comes
    from the recording
  • equipment, the other one from the driver card
  • 2 relate to the events and faults one from the
    recording equipment,
  • the other one from the driver card
  • 1 concerns the technical data (vehicle,
    recording equipment, etc)
  • 1 concerns the over speeding.

121
Data analysis
122
  • Control officers need therefore to know with the
    digital tachograph at least as much as they know
    with the analogue tachograph
  • drivers name
  • vehicle registration number
  • start and end of the journey
  • time
  • speed
  • distance
  • odometer
  • drivers activities

123
If the digital tachograph is activated and
calibrated, control officers can at least base
their checks on print-outs Used without driver
cards, digital tachographs produce nevertheless
anonymous print-outs which can easily be used to
defeat the system Transitional measures (i.e.
use of digital tachographs without driver cards)
should therefore be implemented for a limited
period of time
124
See examples of print-outs
125
Control officers also need to check the validity
of the driver card produced by the driver is
any The driver may have flouted the rules and
be using a non-valid card (previously declared
lost or stolen for example) At EU-EEA level,
exchange of data between card issuing authorities
through TACHOnet

    control officers is them
  • to be trained
  • to be issued with control cards
  • to be equipped
  • to have access to drivers and workshops cards
