Change to charges from 1 April 2008

Wednesday 12 March 2008
The annual change in 2007 to the price index figure for professional goods transport was set by the CBS (Statistics Netherlands) at 2.2%. This means that charges for recovery work on IM roads may be raised by 2.2% as from 1 April 2008, in accordance with article 6.4 of the Recovery agreement.

The index determined by the CBS is provisional in nature. If it emerges that the definitive index is higher or lower than the provisional figure, this difference will be included in the index for 2008, and as a result in the charges applicable from 1 April 2009. The Recovery agreement only provides for a single charge adjustment each year. Information about the price index for professional goods transport is published by the CBS.
