Wednesday, January 23, 2013

More than 300,000 Irish businesses and sole traders will see the cost of compliance with transport regulation cut as new Department of Transport, Tourism & Sport and Road Safety Authority computer systems go live later this year. The total projected annual savings to business will be €32 million.
This followed a detailed review by Minister Leo Varadkar's Transport Department, in conjunction with Sira Consultants, of the impact on business of the following regulations:

  • Testing and taxing of commercial vehicles;
  • Vehicle Drivers’ Certificate of Professional Competence;
  • Road Transport Operators’ Licence;
  • Tachograph Regulations applying to vehicles above 3.5 tonnes;
  • National Car Test;
  • New Road Vehicle Procedures.
The following businesses will benefit::
  • 300,000 owners of commercial registered vehicles; 
  • 55,700 professional drivers;
  • 46,879 businesses with vehicles above 3.5 tonnes;
  • 6,249 road transport operators.
