Administrative circular no.3 updated

Administrative circular no.3 (rev. 2) - Home leave, travel to home station and assimilated leave and travel - is updated

Administrative Circular No. 3 (Rev. 2) entitled “Home leave, travel to the home station and assimilated leave and travel”, approved by the Director-General following discussion at the Standing Concertation Committee meeting of 11 October 2012 and entering into force on 1 January 2013, is available on the intranet site of the Human Resources Department.

This circular is applicable to employed members of the personnel.

It cancels and replaces Administrative Circular No. 3 (Rev. 1) entitled “Travel to the home station and home leave” of June 2002.

The circular was revised in order to take into account the new status of Associate Member State and the fact that henceforth, home stations may be situated on territory outside of Europe. It is proposed to introduce a new system of determination of the benefits (Travel expenses, travel time and distance indemnity) granted in the context of home leave and supplementary journeys to the home station.  For this purpose, it is proposed to differentiate between ten large geographical zones.  Furthermore, it is also proposed to limit the maximum amount of travel time granted in the context of home leave to four days.
