The main difference in the external features of non-emergency and intermediary transport compared to emergency transport is the body colour (white instead of yellow), the different pattern on the side and the absence of the 112 number. The regulations on non-urgent transport have already been drawn up by the federal states. The Royal Decree on the external features of intermediary transport is in the preparatory stage.

 

[1]The Royal Decree concerns the implementation of the Protocol Agreement of 27 March 2017 as regards the external features of emergency transport permanently deployed within the emergency medical assistance chain.
