Notification of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic No. 149/2014 Coll. – Additional Protocol to the Convention on the Contract for the International Carriage of Goods by Road (CMR) Concerning the Electronic Consignment Note

On February 20, 2008 The Additional Protocol to the Convention on the Contract for the International Carriage of Goods by Road (CMR) Concerning the Electronic Consignment Note was adopted in Geneva. The Additional Protocol became effective for the Slovak Republic on May 22, 2014.

Subject to the provisions of this Protocol, the consignment note referred to in the Convention, as well as any demand, declaration, instruction, request, reservation or other communication related to the performance of a contract of carriage to which the Convention applies, may be made out by electronic communication. An electronic consignment note that complies with the provisions of this Protocol shall be considered to be equivalent to the consignment note referred to in the Convention and shall therefore have the same evidentiary value and produce the same effects as that consignment note.
