Stop Press: Recovery Exemptions To Be Removed

The ERRI Group is to host a meeting of all interested parties to discuss the Department of Transport’s proposals to remove some exemptions from HGV roadworthiness testing and operator licensing is to be held at the Houses of Parliament on Tuesday 27th January 2015.

These proposals, if made formal, will have dramatic ramifications to both service providers and recovery operators alike and all representative bodies are encouraged to attend and contribute.

It is very much hoped that this meeting will lead to a formulated response, dialogue and an avenue to, where possible, work with the Department of Transport with the two consultations. Please note that this meeting has no hidden agenda and is not the property of any individual, association or professional body.

Confirmed attendees to date include Jonathan Dale (The Federation of Vehicle Recovery Associations), Gordon McDonald (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency) , Derek Firminger (RHA Rescue & Recovery Group) and Ben Johnson (Allianz Global Assistance).
