By Regulation 2020/1056 (“eFTI Regulation”), the responsible control authorities of all modes of transport are required to collect the legally required freight transport information from companies in electronic form (instead of paper) from the end of 2025, if the information is available through certified eFTI platforms. For entrepreneurs, the electronic form of transmission is initially optional. In the first phase, it will affect all modes of transport, combined transport, cabotage, dangerous goods, waste and aviation security.
The eFTI regulation is a framework regulation, followed by other legislation that regulates the entire technical implementation and which involves the EU member states. This is necessary so that companies can harmonize the relevant information in electronic form in all member states and thereby create compatible systems at the European level.
