Iceland road transport rules below EU standards

As a member of the European Economic Area (EEA) and a beneficiary of the European internal market, Iceland is obliged to implement all EU legislation “with EEA relevance”. A statement from the supervisory authority of the European Free Trade Area (EFTA) indicates that Icelandic regulations allegedly do not meet European standards on the safe transport of flammable, explosive and toxic substances, and Iceland does not carry out regular technical inspections on vehicle roadworthiness. Since Iceland has not taken the opportunity to remedy these issues or bring forward any mitigating arguments, the supervisory authority has decided to take the matter to the EFTA court.
