The granting of community permits under special conditions to speed up the processing, it could entail a Criminal offense If the required requirements cannot be demonstrated.

The ministry of Transportation have enabled in your electronic office the administrative procedure of community license application for those carriers owning light vehicles with a tonnage greater than 2.5 tons of maximum mass that carry out international transport, as established by the Mobility Package approved by the European Union. The permit or license will be mandatory to be carried on board the vehicles from this Sunday, May 22, when traveling through any Member State of the European Union.

To obtain these permits, it has been established the same procedure as for heavy vehicles; that is, both the requirement of professional competence (either in his name or by hiring a manager) as well as those related to establishment, honorability and economic capacity, although in the latter reducing the amounts to justify to 1,800 euros for the first vehicle and 900 euros for the second and following.

Although the Ministry of Transport has not established a moratorium or an exception in complying with the requirements for obtaining it, to facilitate its processing, the Ministry has established that only During this year 2022, only the presentation of a responsible declaration will be required in which it is confirmed that the carrier meets all the access requirements to the establishment sector. With this declaration, they will be granted a community license valid until the month in which it corresponds to carry out the visa of their transport authorization in 2023, at which time the Autonomous Community will verify compliance with the mandatory requirements.

This situation has caused some confusion among many of the affected carriers who, according to Fenadismerconsider that with the presentation of said declaration they are exempted from compliance with the aforementioned requirements at least during this year, for which the employer warns that “that doing so without meeting the requirements could incur a possible criminal offense for false documentation”.
