What Executives need to know about the Chain of Responsibility

Answer your questions now before the new CoR laws take effect

Time is short – especially as new CoR laws are coming this October - so let’s get straight to the numbers.

Once the laws are in place, breaches could result in:

  • Up to $300,000 fines and 5 years’ imprisonment for individuals
  • Up to $3,000,000 fines for companies

If your business has any connection with a heavy vehicle that moves freight from point A to point B – whether you own the transport company, are a contract driver, or you arrange to deliver or receive the freight – the CoR laws will apply to you.

And the buck will stop with the Executives of a company.

Anybody involved in the decision-making of a company can be legally classed as an Executive.

Fail to meet your obligations as an Executive under the CoR and you will be liable

Your liability cannot be delegated to another employee either.

If you are not entirely sure what all of your responsibilities are under the CoR, now is the time to get on top of it.

You only have weeks left.
