Derogation from driving times and rest periods – announcement of the Minister of Infrastructure

Following Art. 14, paragraph 2 of Regulation (EC) No 561/2006 on the harmonization of certain social legislation relating to road transport Poland has decided to introduce temporary exceptions from the application of Articles 6 and 7 to international transport operations of persons and goods.

These exceptional measures are justified by the coronavirus pandemic. The derogations will apply from 18 March to 16 April.
Under these derogations:
- the daily driving time must not exceed 11 hours (derogation from Article 6, item 1),
- the weekly driving time must not exceed 60 hours (derogation from Article 6, item 3),
- the total driving time over two consecutive weeks must not exceed 96 hours (derogation from Article 6, item 3),
- after a driving period of five and a half hours, the driver is entitled to a continuous break of at least 45 minutes (derogation from Article 7).
Since the driving time is increased from 9 to 11 hours, no derogation will apply for daily and weekly rest periods.
