Abolition of internal frontier controls for means of transport registered in a non-Community country

To abolish and transfer to the Community's external frontiers the internal frontier controls carried out by the Member States in the field of road and inland waterway transport in respect of means of transport registered or put into circulation in a non-Community country.

ACT

Council Regulation (EEC) No 3912/92 of 17 December 1992 on controls carried out within the Community in the field of road and inland waterway transport in respect of means of transport registered or put into circulation in a third country.

SUMMARY

This Regulation applies to controls carried out within the Community by the Member States in the field of road and inland waterway transport in respect of means of transport registered or put into circulation in a non-Community country.

The provisions of the Regulation do not affect the right of Member States to perform controls when means of transport from third countries enter their territory in order to make sure that they are authorised to circulate on their territory or to pass through it.

The above-mentioned controls are no longer carried out as frontier controls at the Community's internal frontiers but only as part of the controls normally carried out by Member States in their territory.

The Member States are to take all measures needed to institute cooperation between their respective competent authorities.
