DVS “allow list”

THE RHA has welcomed the introduction of an “allow list” by Transport for London to manage the enforcement of London’s Direct Vision Standard. RHA made it clear that as a result of Brexit and Covid-19, HGV operators are unable to fit the required safety systems before enforcement begins on 1 March.

Commenting, RHA chief executive Richard Burnett said: ‘The supply chain disruption caused by Brexit meant that operators have faced difficulties sourcing the required safety equipment.

‘In addition, Covid-19 has meant that the technicians needed to install the equipment are either furloughed or complying with travel restrictions.

Meanwhile, the RHA will encourage hauliers to register with TfL before 1 March 2021 to meet the “allow list” requirements.
