Transport legislation in Slovakia

Investors in Slovakia who intend to enter the transportation sector will have to be familiarized with the legislation in this country which refers to this business domain. One of the most important international conventions which regulate the road transport of goods in Slovakia is the TIR Convention, which was promulgated in the Slovak Republic as No. 144/1982 Coll. This convention is very important in trade with countries from outside the European Union, such as Turkey, China or Russia, and it has less impact in Europe, because the Union is considered a single customs unit.
Other transportation regulations applicable to Slovakia are governed by the International Road Transport Union (IRU) from Geneva. If you want to open a company in Slovakia in this sector, you will need to follow both the Slovakian legal requirements and the international policies concerning transport.
