Chain of responsibility leaflet

If you use road transport as part of your business, you share the responsibility of managing the risk. This means anyone who has control in the transport chain – including the consignor, loader and receiver – can be held legally accountable if, by their actions, inactions or decisions, they cause or contribute to a breach of the road laws.

Includes topics such as:

  • What is the aim of the legislation?
  • Why has the Chain of Responsibility legislation been introduced?
  • Who is covered by the chain of responsibility?
  • What do I have to do?
