The British government has informed hauliers that the French authorities will accept a completed Certificate for International Transport Workers from drivers of vehicles performing international transport of goods by road. France no longer requires the document called “International Attestation”.
The Certificate for International Transport Workers must be carried in hard copy form by the driver and shown, if requested, to French enforcement agencies.
Passengers in either freight vehicles or other vehicles will still need to produce the ‘International travel certificate to mainland France’.
Until now, all those driving to France, including freight operators, had to complete an International Attestation to confirm that their journey meets the criteria for essential travel. This was designed to curb non-essential travel.
