In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the European Commission proposed specific and temporary measures applicable to the renewal and extension of the period of validity of certain certificates, licences and authorisations and the postponement of certain periodic checks and training in response to the extraordinary circumstances in the transport industry.


The AK views this proposal for a regulation critically and partly rejects it, as it entails some excessive and too far-reaching exceptions that could impair transport safety. A look at the situation in Austria shows that the proposed extensions are unnecessary and could even prove counterproductive.
