The new legislation on mandatory insurance for the civil liability of motor vehicles, amending the Private Insurance Code (CAP) and aligning the national regulations with EU Directive 2021/2118 has been approved.

The new regulations introduce the obligation to take out civil liability insurance for all vehicles, even for those that are parked or vehicles traveling in areas inaccessible to the public.

Exemptions from the obligation of insurance for the civil liability are provided for vehicles withdrawn from circulation, subject to administrative detention or cars unable to circulate.

The new provisions will come into effect starting from June 30 of the current year.
