Regulatory compliance

  • Inspection and Maintenance systems
  • Construction & Use 
  • Drivers' Hours and Rest Periods
  • Working Time Directive
  • Road Traffic Acts and Road Transport Act compliance
  • Environmental Protection 
  • Health and Safety regulations 
  • Local Regulatory and Commercial compliance e.g. LEZ; Crossrail;HS2

These headings represent only few of the many areas within which an Operator must achieve regulatory compliance. In fact, at least eleven undertakings given by Operators when applying for an Operator's Licence, not least that confirming that the laws relating to the driving and operation of vehicles will be observed. Breach of any of these undertakings, or the other rules and regulations associated with the Road Transport industry can and often does result in action by the DVSA, Traffic Commissioner or the criminal courts.
