New EU working time rules

Statutory working time changes for road transport workers come into force across the European Union today (Regulation (EC) No. 561/2006).

Daily working time limits of nine hours (extendable to 10 hours twice a week) remain, but drivers of heavy goods and passenger transport vehicles must no longer work more than 56 hours per week or 90 hours during any two consecutive weeks. A driver is now required to take a 45-minute rest break every 4.5 hours, although this may be split into two shorter breaks if required. Daily rest periods may now only be split into two rather than three periods (3 hours plus 9 hours). Drivers must also be given 45 continuous hours off work every week, which may be reduced to 24 hours if a block of compensatory time is given by the third week after the reduction was made.
