Developments this week

FTA calls for thorough review of HGV testing

FTA has called for a full review of the testing function at the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and for a proper consideration of independent testing, including as a way of addressing recruitment difficulties. We emphasised that such a review needs to be led by Government, with contributions from industry and that action must be an urgent priority.

FTA has also told DVSA that we believe it does not collect the appropriate data to allow it to suitably assess the state of the market place and the provision of annual tests to operators. We have suggested a range of metrics which would help all of industry in identifying where the difficulties lie, and therefore find solutions and are putting a range of actions in place to address our concerns.

Following the launch of the Earned Recognition scheme last week, we also suggested that operators who had demonstrated the standards to achieve the marque should be allowed to conduct their own tests.

FTA assessing interest in setting up an ATF Working Group
Following the recent developments in the HGV testing regime as reported above, including members reporting difficulties in booking annual tests and with DVSA cancelling booked testing sessions, FTA is investigating whether members who operate Authorised Testing Facilities (ATF) would see a value in the establishment of an ATF Working Group to feedback on joint industry proposals to address current issues. Expressions of interest in being involved in such a group should be sent to James Firth.


Launch of FTA's Logistics Report 2018

Today (2 May), FTA is launching its Logistics Report 2018 at a drinks reception in association with Santander UK at Multimodal from 4:30pm-6:30pm. Attendees will have the opportunity to discuss industry issues and to meet with experts to hear their views on developments affecting the freight, transport and logistics industry.

The FTA Logistics Report 2018 contains the findings of the Logistics Industry Survey conducted with members earlier this year, reporting on the opinions of around 500 freight and logistics businesses operating in the UK and internationally. The report shows that after a year of resilient trading in 2017, the UK’s logistics industry expects continued success in 2018, despite the uncertainties posed by Brexit and continued economic instability. However, respondents surveyed for the report cautioned that the current positivity surrounding logistics could be lost without firm plans for the UK’s future trading relationships with Europe, which will have an impact internationally and domestically. Continued inflationary pressure could also have a significant effect on investment – 14 per cent of those questioned have already curtailed investment decisions since the vote to leave the EU – as well as on consumer spending, which will have a knock-on impact on the logistics sector which supplies all the nation’s needs. There are also concerns surrounding future employees for a sector which relies heavily on EU workers, with 35 per cent of respondents highlighting that a restriction on worker movement would have a detrimental effect on their businesses.

A downloadable copy of the FTA Logistics Report 2018, the full findings of the Logistics Industry Survey 2017/18 and a slide pack containing the highlights of the report may be found on our website at www.fta.co.uk/logisticsreport18.


MPs launch inquiry into freight and Brexit

The House of Commons Transport Select Committee has launched an inquiry into freight and Brexit. The committee is asking industry for detailed information on how the sector will prepare for the challenges and opportunities of Brexit for UK freight, particularly through investment in transport infrastructure and changes to transport policy and regulation. It is keen to understand what can be delivered in the time available to allow for the smooth operation of freight in the longer term.

FTA will be providing written evidence to the inquiry, but should you wish to do the same please refer to the Committee’s website for more details and the specific questions MPs would like answered here. The deadline for responses is Friday 8 June 2018.

Sign up for our next free Brexit webinar
Our next free Brexit webinar on Thursday 17 May at 11.30am (UK time) will inform FTA members of the latest Brexit developments and the potential implications for international supply chains, logistics services and operators of goods vehicles in the UK. Attendees will also be able to ask questions and share views. Find out how to take part here. You can also view recordings of previous webinars here.


Highways England launches smart motorways training developed with FTA

FTA is conscious that operators would appreciate more advice about driving on smart motorways. This is why FTA has worked in partnership with Highways England to produce a training module which is also approved for use on the Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (Driver CPC) course programme and which was announced at the CV Show by Highways England last week. Aimed at commercial vehicle drivers, the course – which generated a lot of interest at the show – has been designed to provide practical, relevant training. The eight-hour, one-day course covers the past, present and future of smart motorways, the different signals on the network, driver behaviour and the role of traffic officers.

Any company that wishes to enrol their drivers on the training can email SPTC_Driver_Education_Course@highwaysengland.co.uk. Find out more by reading the Highways England press release here. FTA offers the training as a Driver CPC course, find out more here.


DVLA changes consent forms for driver licence checking service

With the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May, DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency) has reviewed its driver licence checking service, Access to Driver Data (ADD), and has updated the ‘ADD Contract’ in line with GDPR requirements. The new contract includes details of how the processing conditions that allow data to be released by DVLA to third parties will change on 25 May, and how this affects the existing paper consent and electronic consent requirements.

DVLA has agreed that the current D796 consent form (or bespoke versions or electronic consent already approved by DVLA) will continue to be valid for a three-month transitional period, from 25 May 2018 to 25 August 2018. This transitional or grace period is for driver data customers who normally use ADD through a third party, during which acceptance of both the D796 and D906 will apply.

This means that:

  • D796 forms (or bespoke versions or electronic consent) can be used as evidence to support ADD enquiries up to 25 August 2018. These forms cannot be used from 26 August 2018 onwards
  • only D906/ADD forms (or bespoke versions or electronic solutions approved by DVLA) will be valid from 26 August 2018 onwards to support ADD enquiries. You only need to complete a D906/ADD from 26 August 2018 onwards when you wish to check data
  • D906/ADD forms (or bespoke versions or electronic solutions approved by DVLA) can be rolled out to drivers in advance of 25 May 2018 (and can be signed and dated in advance of 25 May) in readiness for ADD enquiries from 25 May, in line with the new contract. Please note that in line with the new processing condition brought in by GDPR, D906/ADD forms (or bespoke or electronic versions approved by DVLA) which reflect this cannot be used to support ADD enquiries until GDPR is implemented on 25 May 2018

A Clean Air Zone Framework for Wales published

The Welsh Government has published A Clean Air Zone Framework for Wales. This provides guidance to local authorities who are considering options to address local air quality issues. The framework describes: what a clean air zone is; under what circumstances it may be applied; and the key considerations for local authorities who wish to establish one. The consultation closes on 19 June 2018 and may be found here. The framework is along similar lines to guidelines already announced for England. The only more detailed Clean Air Zone plans currently available for Wales relate to Cardiff, as reported in enews last week.
