The Epilepsy and Driving Taskforce are pleased to inform IBE members that the European Commission has accepted the recommendations of the Working Groups on Driving which completed their work some time ago. The Epilepsy Working Group was led by Dr Eric Schmedding who is also a member of the IBE Driving Taskforce. It is expected that the new Directive based on these proposals will be implemented throughout the EU in late 2009. Once that happens, member states will be given 1 year to bring their countrys regulations into line with the EUs directive.
