Consultation on proposals to amend the Road Transport Directive

Close date: 27 February 2009

The Government consults on European Commission proposals to amend the Road Transport Directive (2002/15/EC), including removing the requirement that self-employed workers come within the scope of the Directive on 23 March 2009, while introducing a more precise definition of moble workers so that "false" self-employed mobile workers do become subject to the Directive.
