    Abstract

    In 2003, the European Union (EU) introduced a requirement for a Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) for professional truck drivers operating within the EU. There has been recent discussion of imposing a similar requirement in Australia. This paper reviews the experience of EU trucking industries thus far and assesses indirect benefits and costs of three types: (1) Financial (to trucking firms and industry); (2) Economic (to market sectors); and (3) Social/External (to society as a whole). Based on this analysis of experience in the EU, the paper preliminarily discusses how these issues might play out if a CPC similar to the EU regulation were to be imposed in Australia.
