The Road Transport (Working Time) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2005
This Regulation makes a small administrative change in Regulation 3(3)(b) as it relates to article 2(2) of the AETR.
The exclusions to the application of the AETR (European Agreement Concerning The Work of Crews of vehicles Engaged in International Road Transport) are broadened to include Article 2(2)a of the AETR. This section states that international transport operations, where one or more crew members do not leave their home territory, are not in scope of the AETR. Therefore, they are also out of the working time Regulation.
