A Quality Charter for international road haulage operations has been approved by the transport ministers of the European member countries of the International Transport Forum at the OECD. It is a major step towards harmonisation of conditions in the Pan-European road haulage market


The Quality Charter establishes qualification standards for companies, managers and drivers and will enter into force on 1 January 2016. It applies to pan-European road haulage operations under
the Multilateral Quota system established in 1974 by the European Conference of Ministers of
Transport (ECMT), which evolved into the International Transport Forum (ITF) in 2006. 


In a statement issued with the approval of the Quality Charter, ministers of the European member
countries of the International Transport Forum 

“commit to engage their efforts towards having the
provisions of the Charter applied to all international transport operations carried under the ECMT
Multilateral Quota as of 1 January 2018.”



- The approval of the Quality Charter is a major step towards
harmonisation of conditions in the pan-European road freight transport market. The Charter,
alongside the incitation mechanisms already in place for adoption of the most technologically
advanced trucks, will establish the Multilateral Quota system as a symbol of quality, safety and
environmental standards in road transport, said José Viegas, Secretary-General of the International Transport Forum, which manages the Multilateral Quota system.


The approval of the Quality Charter completes longstanding work by the ITF on defining and
promoting the highest standards for freight transport operators, managers and drivers at Pan-
European level. 


The ITF will monitor the implementation of the provisions of the Quality Charter by the member
countries through its European Road Transport Group. It will also define follow-up actions for the
further development of the Multilateral Quota system.
