La directive dite « de notification » ne s’applique en effet qu’aux services de la société de l’information.

As from 1 April 2016, Belgium will be introducing a kilometre-based intelligent road charge for trucks exceeding 3.5 tonnes.

26/02/2016

The Belgian Minister of Mobility, Mrs Jacqueline Galant, has announced that the new Royal Decree related to the use of drones has been finalized and will be submitted for advice to the Council of State (“Raad van State”) and the Regional Governments. The first draft of the Royal Decree received criticism of Europe, so the Minister was compelled to temper the rather strict rules that applied to drones, and in particular the static distinction between professional and recreational use. The Minister expects that the Royal Decree will enter into force during the coming spring.
