Hungary rethinks trade reporting system

[ February 5, 2015   //   ]

The International Road Transport Union welcomed a decision on 4 February by the Hungarian authorities to postpone the enforcement of its Electronic Public Road Trade Control System (EKAER) until the beginning of March 2015. Since 1 January, consignors and consignees in Hungary have been required to register and report all movement of goods between Hungary and other EU Member States through EKAER. The IRU says that it puts transport operators at risk of indirect sanctions if consignors and consignees fail to complete the required processes. It hopes this postponement will allow authorities to thoroughly review and improve the system.
