Regulators offer support in light of COVID-19 outbreak

Regulators offer support in light of COVID-19 outbreak

As the country faces a period of extraordinarily challenging times, the Senior Traffic Commissioner has published new guidance to assist the transport industry.

The Statutory Document seeks to offer support through flexible working practices and a balanced approach.

The document provides guidance for:

  • Operators who cannot meet financial standing requirement
  • Approach when a transport manager is unable to attend work
  • The period of grace process if the mandatory requirements to hold an operator’s licence can’t be met
  • When operators are unable to access their operating centres
  • The traffic commissioners’ approach to the consideration of financial evidence of an operator applying for interim authorisation
  • The traffic commissioners’ approach to applications for temporary exemptions to the requirement to hold an operator’s licence
  • The approach to be adopted for short notice requests to change local bus services and reducing the administrative burden on operators
  • Attendance and postponement of hearings
