Inland navigation: Commission calls on Belgium to comply with EU rules on chartering and pricing

January 30, 2019


The Commission decided today to send a letter of formal notice to Belgium for incompatibility of the national requirement regarding chartering and pricing in inland waterway transport with EU law (Council Directive 96/75/EC).


The Directive establishes that contracts both in international and in national transport shall be freely concluded between the parties concerned and prices freely negotiated. Belgium now has two months to reply to the arguments raised by the Commission; otherwise, the Commission may decide to send a reasoned opinion.
