As part of Brexit, the UK is faced with a task of ensuring that its departure from the EU is as smooth as possible. As part of this, the Government has introduced the Haulage Permits and Trailer Registration Bill (Bill). A consultation has now been opened in respect of the same.
Essentially, the Bill will allow the UK to operate a permit scheme for international road haulage for journeys requiring permits. It will also introduce a trailer registration scheme to allow UK trailers to be used internationally.
Proposals are being made by the Department of Transport on the following:
- how a haulage permits scheme should operate in the future;
- which trailers will require registration;
- on how a trailer registration scheme will operate.
Have your say by responding to the proposals at: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/UHDCS/
The consultation closes on 20 June 2018.
