UNECE Inland Transport Committee

The Inland Transport Committee (ITC) is the highest policy-making body of the UNECE in the field of transport. In the course of the last 70 years, together with its subsidiary bodies, the ITC has provided a pan-European intergovernmental forum, where UNECE member countries come together to forge tools for economic cooperation and negotiate and adopt international legal instruments on inland transport. These legal instruments are considered indispensable for developing efficient, harmonized and integrated, safe and sustainable pan-European transport systems.

To deal with these transport issues, the ITC is assisted by a number of Subsidiary Bodies, the nature of which is regularly reviewed by the ITC. These bodies, to which the Sustainable Transport Division also provides the secretariat, are the following:
    • Working Party on Road Transport (SC1)
    • Working Party on Road Traffic Safety (WP.1)
    • World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicles Regulations (WP.29)
    • Working Party on Rail Transport (SC.2)
    • Working Party on Inland Water Transport (SC.3)
    • Working Party on Combined Transport (WP.24)
    • Working Party on Customs Questions affecting Transport (WP.30)
    • Working Party on the Transport of Dangerous Goods (WP.15)
    • Working Party on the Transport of Perishable Foodstuffs (WP.11)
    • Working Party on Trends and Economics (WP.5)
    • Working Party on Transport Statistics (WP.6)
