This is directly applicable in member states. These Regulations also provide for the operational implementation of Regulation 181/2011 in relation to the designation of terminals, travel agents, tour operators and the complaints handling and enforcement of these aspects of the rights of passengers in bus and coach transport.

Regulation 7 implements in part Article 31 of Regulation 181/2011 by establishing enforcement measures.

Regulation 8 also implements Article 31 of Regulation 181/2011 by setting penalties applicable to those found guilty of infringements of Regulation 181/2011 or failing to comply with a notice issued under regulation 7.
