Detail of outcome
Detail of feedback received
We received 13 responses to our Consultation. The Senior Traffic Commissioner has considered all responses and outlines where they have been taken into account. The Statutory Documents are published in order to be transparent about the way we make our decisions. On this occasion the majority of changes are dictated by the case law rather than a debate on policy. The responses received have helped us to try and clarify some of the changes.
The Senior Traffic Commissioner’s Statutory Documents describe how traffic commissioners apply the law and take a proportionate approach in their regulatory powers. They also give advice to operators, transport managers and drivers who are regulated by traffic commissioners.
This framework is needed to ensure consistent and fair regulation of the commercial vehicle industries.
The documents are reviewed regularly. Many of the amendments made in this latest review recognise changes in the law and decisions made by the Upper Tribunal.
The following documents have been amended:
- good repute and fitness
- transport managers
