MTCIT Issues Amendments to the Carriage by Land Regulation

The Ministry of Transport, Communication, and Information Technology has issued amendments to the Executive Regulation of the Law of Carriage by Land. The amendments place special emphasis on installation of tracking systems on licensees for transporting goods. This obligation extends to vehicles not registered in Oman, when they enter or transit through its lands.

The regulation sets out an administrative penalty if the tracking systems are tampered with or re-installed by unauthorised entities amounting to a fine of 400 (four hundred) Rial Omani for the first time, which is doubled in the event of repetition, and will lead to cancellation of the licence when repeated for the third time.
