of 10 November 1986

amending Directive 75/130/EEC on the establishment of common rules for certain types of combined transport of goods between Member States

(86/544/EEC)

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, and in particular Article 75 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission (1),

Having regard to the opinion of the European Parliament (2),

Having regard to the opinion of the Economic and Social Committee (3),

Whereas the application of Directive 75/130/EEC (4), as last amended by Directive 82/603/EEC (5), has led to positive results;

Whereas the development of combined transport is in the general interest;

Whereas the continuing development of combined transport over the last few years requires the present Community rules to be amended in order better to exploit the possibilities afforded by the various techniques;

Whereas access by own-account transport to combined transport should be facilitated,

(2) Article 4 (1) shall be replaced by the following:

'1. When a frontier is crossed on the road journey before the journey by rail or inland waterway, Member States may require the operator to prove by means of an appropriate document that a reservation has been made for the transport by rail or by inland waterway of the tractor unit, lorry, trailer, semi-trailer, or the swap bodies thereof, and of the container of 20 feet or more.';

(3) Article 9 shall be replaced by the following:

'Article 9

Where a trailer or semi-trailer belonging to an undertaking engaged in own-account combined transport is hauled on a final section by a tractor belonging to an

undertaking engaged in transport for hire or reward, the transport operation so effected shall be exempt from presentation of the document provided for in Article 3, but another document shall be provided giving evidence of the journey covered or to be covered by rail or by inland waterway.'.

Article 2

Member States shall take the measures necessary to comply with this Directive before 1 July 1987. They shall inform the Commission thereof.
