Exceptional Measures in Transport to deal with COVID-19: Inability to comply with certain provisions of EU legislation

Member States have informed the Commission about difficulties to renew certain licenses or certificates for professional carriers, including vehicles and vessels certificates or transport workers, due to public measures that have become necessary in view of the COVID-19 outbreak. It has been reported to the Commission services that renewals or other steps necessary during the lifetime of a license or certificate have become impossible for different reasons. Thus, the competent national administration or body may not be in a position to deliver the necessary documents or because the person or entity concerned may be prevented from completing the necessary formalities or procedures.
