Introduction

Thank you for taking 10 minutes of your time to answer this important survey conducted within the framework of the Digital Transport and Logistics Forum (DTLF).

The DTLF is an expert group composed of transport and logistics business and industry representatives, representatives of Member States authorities and other transport and logistics experts. It assists the European Commission in developing and implementing policy measures with a view to improve the efficiency of European transport and logistics.

Objective
The key objective of this survey is to understand the current state of play regarding the use of electronic documents in transport, with a view to enable effective paperless processes at roadside checks, accessing industry plants, terminals etc.

Focus
The survey focuses on data and information related to registration and certification of road vehicles, as contained in the Vehicle Registration Certificate, Green Card (International Certificate of Motor Insurance) and CoC (Certificate of Conformity), as well as other vehicle documents needed in relation to roadside checks, transport of dangerous goods (ADR), animal transport, transport of waste etc. Vehicle documents which are used in the national context are also relevant for the purposes of this survey.

Confidentiality
The identity of the respondents will not be disclosed. However, identification information as regards the type of organisation, size and Member State of origin will be used for the purposes of the analysis. 

Disclaimer
This survey does not represent an official inquiry. Expected responses will therefore not be treated as official, permanent or binding in any way and are fully confidential. They will form the basis for work that will continue to evolve during the entire DTLF lifespan.

Timeline
This survey is open until 30 September 2017.

In order to provide a first feed-back on the findings of the survey to the DTLF plenary meeting scheduled for 26 April 2017, an intermediate cut-off date is set for 21 April.

All responses received after that date will be processed at a later stage, either on a rolling basis or following the closure of survey on 30 September 2017.
