Erkrath, Germany,  2016-08-17 – The new EU regulation 2016/403 will be valid as of 1 January 2017. It is an extension of the existing regulation 1071/2009. That regulation made it possible to dispute the good repute of freight forwarders in the event of repeated and serious traffic infringements.  However, individual member states had too much ample scoper for interpretation of the regulation, and there was no unified application across all EU member states. In Germany, for example, a very few freight forwarders were "closed down" for repeated infringements. The new regulation is stricter and designed to introduce unity of penalties for serious infringements. The precise regulation name is "Commission Regulation (EU) 2016/403 of 18 March 2016 supplementing Regulation (EC) No 1071/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to the classification of serious infringements of the Union rules, which may lead to the loss of good repute by the road transport operator, and amending Annex III to Directive 2006/22/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council".
