TRANSPORT for London (TfL) is launching a new safety standard for HGVs of over 12 tonne gross vehicle weight entering and operating in the capital later this year.
The ‘Progressive Safe System’ (PSS) which goes live from 28 October will be required for HGVs rated below three stars. If you hold an existing HGV safety permit for a zero, one or two star rated it will expire at midnight on 27 October.
The RHA is concerned about the timescales TfL has imposed to ensure businesses can realistically comply with the practical and operational challenges.
RHA is collaborating with other trade associations including Logistics UK and London Councils on behalf of affected operators.
Calls to action: Complete a TfL survey expressing your readiness for the 28 October changes. The deadline is Monday 5 February.
