Working time, drivers' hours and tachograph rules in UK and Europe
Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) between the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) and the Department for Transport (DfT)
This MoA sets out the obligations of VOSA and DfT in respect of Directive 2006/22/EC (as amended) on minimum conditions for the implementation of Council Regulations (EEC) No 3820/85 and (EEC) No 3821/85 concerning social legislation relating to road transport activities (which repeals Council Directive 88/599/EEC).
This document sets out the terms of reference, methodology, evidence base and recommendations of the review of the UK's implementation of the EU road transport working time Directive (2002/15/EC). It discusses in detail the various stakeholder views on a number of key issues, and seeks to balance those views when making recommendations based on the evidence gathered.
