Liaison with EU and UN

CORTE promotes and strengthens dialogue and cooperation between its members and international organisations, including UN and the EU. CORTE participates in activities of the working bodies of the UN, working towards the implementation of the smart tachograph in the non-EU/AETR contracting parties. CORTE takes part in expert groups set by the European Commission and works closely with DG MOVE on some crucial issues such as driving and resting times, and smart digital tachograph, by providing assessments of the main enforcement questions linked to EU regulations, as well as proposed solutions to the main issues. By working with its members in identifying the main technical and enforceability issues, CORTE provides the European Commission with technical expertise in relation to the preparation of legislative proposals and policy initiatives in the field of road transport as well as in their implementation, while promoting interests of CORTE membership.
