Contact person for posted drivers in France and Belgium

On February 2, 2022, the new portal came into force as a single platform for the communication of posting declarations to the different EU countries, including the United Kingdom (RTPD or IMI portal). These posting declarations will be mandatory for companies based in the EU that carry out cross-border and cabotage transport within the EU. This applies to salaried workers who are posted for both goods and passenger transport.

As a result of the above, the CETM has reached an agreement with a French-Spanish Lawyer, for all companies that wish to have a French-speaking Contact Person both in France and in Belgium.

Through the designation of a Contact Person, the French and Belgian inspection bodies will communicate with the designated contact person to request any clarification or information on the drivers’ movement declaration or the transport operations carried out which may be subject to roadside or post-clearance checks, requesting additional documentation.
