DFT Relaxes Enforcement of Retained EU Drivers Regulation

The Department for Transport has taken the decision to relax the enforcement of the Regulation in England, Scotland and Wales until 11:59pm on 8th May 2022.

 

This temporary relaxation of the rules reflects the urgent situation arising from the cancellation of some ferry services. This is resulting in congestion in and around ports affecting the carriage of goods and passengers by road.

The relaxation of the rules applies from 12:01am on 9 April 2022 until 11:59pm on 8 May 2022, subject to review.

Notification forms are not required:

  • for operators using the relaxation only in the course of international journeys via Kent
  • from operators established outside the UK
