The EU Posting Declaration portal (previously referred to as EU posting of drivers portal) is now available to use for Operators in the UK.
From the 2nd February 2022, new EU rules mean if you operate loaded goods journeys in and between European Member States (cabotage or cross-trade), you may need to register information digitally about your journeys on a new EU web-based portal.
This will include details such as the name of the operator, driver, driver employment details, dates of travel, and the vehicle used before the journey commences.
This will apply to you if you use:
- Vans of any size or other light goods vehicles (sometimes called ‘light commercial vehicles’)
- Vans towing trailers
- Cars towing trailers
- HGVs towing trailers
This will also apply to you if you transport goods between two points in the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway for commercial purposes. This includes:
- Cabotage jobs
- Cross-trade jobs
- Moving goods for your own business’ use
