The EU Commission regrets the actions against fuskfirmaer: It is unheard of

A part of the vejpakken, that should stop the letterbox, is in conflict with the regime, believes the EU Commission.

They cheered in the west, and the foamed of anger in the east, since the EU-Parliament and EU governments last week agreed on the EU's vejpakke. It should among other things put an end to the letterbox in the transport sector.

However, the EU Commission, as always, to participate in such trilogforhandlinger, has surprisingly chosen to take a distance from a part of the agreement, after negotiations were completed.

- We will see if we need to make legislative proposals that can improve these two elements, so they are in line with the green deal, says a spokesman for the EUROPEAN Commission.

the Commission will initiate an impact assessment. If it confirms what the new transport commissioner has already found, namely that the agreement creates, among other things climate change, will submit proposal to get the parts of the vejpakken changed.

the Interim, the process continues however, to formally adopt the vejpakke, which was announced last week. It happens in meetings between the EU-countries this week.

It is a shocking turn of several EU parliamentarians. Among them is Marianne Wind (S), which has followed the process closely.

- It is completely unheard of. It is so very unheard of that I would call it strange. I understand it's simply not, says Wind.

She is waiting for an extraordinary meeting of the transport committee either Wednesday or Thursday in Strasbourg.

the issue is that in the trilogue reached an agreement. As part of the was trucks every eighth week to return to their homeland. It should put an end to letterbox, which is a problem in the sector.

the EU Commission regrets, according to vice-president Valdis Dombrovskis to the EU-Parliament and EU governments have reached an agreement, which included elements, which are not in accordance with the EU's climate plan.

He argues that it can lead to unnecessary CO2 emissions, if there is a requirement that trucks have to return home. They are likely to run with empty cargo space, he says.

the Commission will, therefore, according to Dombrovskis - if necessary - "exercise its right" to conduct an impact assessment and then "put forward targeted proposals, before the two laws will enter into force".

- Serious good hauliers will never ever run with an empty truck. They are great to package it. It smells like far away, says Wind.

the Negotiations on the vejpakken has been going on for a long time. The agreement was about to be dropped before the EU elections in the spring, when a group of parliamentarians from Eastern europe in particular with the various means attempted to slow down the.

Marianne Wind believes that the EU Commission the red card after the completion of the negotiations - creates doubts about the entire legislative process in the EU.

- Now we must stand together, for it is about future negotiations. But it's also about, that we just had gotten a solution to fuskerfirmaer should not have a chance. It is a setback. It must not succeed. We must stand together, " she says.
