A CEMT Permit (CEMT = Conférence Européenne des Ministres des Transports / European Conference of Ministers of Transport) allows companies to transport goods on cross-border trade routes between CEMT member countries (excluding OECD and Eastern and South-Eastern European countries). A CEMT Permit does not authorize domestic traffic within a CEMT member country or transport between a CEMT member country and a non-member country.
Permits are issued by the competent Ministry of Transport and Trade. The use of this permit follows strict rules covering vehicle categories (EURO 1 – 4). There is no legal right to grant permits. The permit must be carried with each voyage, regardless of whether it is loaded or unloaded, and must be filled out before starting the voyage. The permit is valid for one calendar year.
