Regulation (EU) 2022/1280 - formally signed by the co-legislators on 18 July 2022 - laying down specific and temporary measures concerning driver documents issued by Ukraine, in view of Russia's invasion of Ukraine. This is a text with EEA relevance.
This Regulation lays down specific and temporary measures applicable to driver documents issued by Ukraine in accordance with its legislation and held by persons enjoying temporary protection or adequate protection under national law in accordance with Directive 2001/55/EC and Council Implementing Decision (EU) 2022/382. It sets specific rules on expired, lost and stolen Ukrainian driving licences to reduce the administrative burden for those residing in the European Union (EU) under the temporary protection regime. Digital driving licences issued by Ukraine (DIIA) may also be recognised once verification tools have been made available and deployed by Ukraine.
The draft law was tabled by the European Commission on 20 June 2022. It was endorsed by the European Parliament on 7 July, followed by the Council of the European Union on 18 July 2022. The Act was signed by the co-legislators on that same day, and published in the Official Journal on 22 July 2022.
