The European Commission is currently assessing several pieces of legislation on the access and functioning of the inland waterways transport market. The assessment should help determine whether the legislation is fit-for-purpose and whether it supports the smooth and fair functioning of the internal market. In this context a public consultation is being carried out to gather the views and input of stakeholders.
All stakeholders and the general public are invited to express their opinion and share relevant information and first-hand experience related to the EU legislation within the scope of this assessment. This consultation may be of particular interest for ministries, national authorities, international river commissions, international associations, barge owners and barge operators. Responses from stakeholders from relevant non-EU States, in particular from countries active on the Rhine and Danube rivers, are also welcome.
Questionnaires are available in some or all official EU languages. You can submit your responses in any official EU language.
