The Joint Economic Committee of the Channel Tunnel Intergovernmental Commission (IGC) is currently investigating the charging regime in the tunnel to establish its level of consistency with European legislation including those aspects which govern its transparency.

The report of the first stage of the committee's work was published in October 2011. A further report is due to be published this autumn.
