Initial applications to join programme

(1)

A person may apply to the Corporation for 5 or more heavy goods service vehicles to join the Fleet Safety Incentive Programme if—

(a)

he or she is the registered owner of all of the vehicles; and

(b)

the vehicles are subject to the same safety management practices.

(ii)

members of the same financial group; and

(b)

3 Applications to join Fleet Safety Incentive Programme

An application must be accompanied by—

(a)

a statement that the applicant has conducted an assessment of the registered owner’s and, if applicable, the financial group’s safety management practices; and

(b)

a declaration that, in the light of the results of the assessment referred to paragraph (a), the applicant believes that an audit conducted by or for the Corporation would determine that the relevant safety management practices meet the prescribed standards, and whether they would meet the standards to a bronze, silver, or gold level; and

(c)

any information that the Corporation reasonably requires to enable it to determine the application.

4 Processing of applications

(1)

An application under clause 2 is to be treated as not having been received until the day on which the Corporation has received all of the information that it reasonably requires to enable it to determine the application.

(2)

If an applicant fails to provide the Corporation with the information it requests under subclause (1) within 15 working days after the request is made, the application is deemed to be withdrawn.

5 Determining whether safety management practices meet prescribed standards

(1)

The Corporation must determine whether it is satisfied that the relevant safety management practices meet the prescribed standards and, if so, whether they meet the standards to a bronze, silver, or gold level.

(2)

Safety management practices for heavy goods service vehicles that are not rental service vehicles meet the prescribed standards—

(a)

to a bronze level, if the Corporation is satisfied that the practices comply with all of the requirements specified in Part 1 of Schedule 4:

(b)

to a silver level, if the Corporation is satisfied that the practices comply with all of the requirements specified in Parts 1 and 2 of Schedule 4:

(c)

to a gold level, if the Corporation is satisfied that the practices comply with all of the requirements specified in Parts 1, 2, and 3 of Schedule 4.

(3)

Safety management practices for heavy goods service vehicles that are rental service vehicles meet the prescribed standards—

(a)

to a bronze level, if the Corporation is satisfied that the practices comply with all of the requirements specified in Part 1 of Schedule 5:

(b)

to a silver level, if the Corporation is satisfied that the practices comply with all of the requirements specified in Parts 1 and 2 of Schedule 5.

(4)

The Corporation must notify the applicant of its determination under subclause (1).

(5)

If the Corporation notifies an applicant that the safety management practices meet the prescribed standards,—

(a)

the vehicles to which the application relates are deemed to be in the Fleet Safety Incentive Programme for a period of 4 years beginning on the first day after the date on which the Corporation notifies the applicant under subclause (4); and

(b)

the lower rate of levy applies to each of the vehicles from the first day of the next licensing period for the vehicle after the date on which the Corporation notifies the applicant under subclause (4).

6 Audit of safety management practices

(1)

The Corporation must audit safety management practices to determine if they meet the prescribed standards.

(2)

An audit of safety management practices may be conducted for or by the Corporation by any or all of the following means:

(a)

assessing the documentation included in the application:

(b)

conducting an interview with—

(i)

any registered owner or operator of a vehicle subject to the relevant safety management practices:

(ii)

any employee of a person referred to in subparagraph (i):

(iii)

any driver of a vehicle subject to the relevant safety management practices:

(c)

carrying out an on-site (workplace or on-road) audit of the relevant safety management practices.

(3)

After carrying out an audit, the Corporation may, but is not obliged to, allow an applicant up to 30 days to improve the relevant safety management practices, or aspects of them, before finalising its determination.

(4)

The 30-day period begins when the Corporation notifies the applicant of the safety management practices, or aspects of them, that must be improved.

(5)

To avoid doubt, the manner of conducting an audit is at the Corporation’s discretion.

7 Cross-crediting of audit results

(1)

For the purpose of clause 6, the Corporation may determine that it is satisfied that the relevant safety management practices meet the prescribed standards on the basis of a previous audit of those practices carried out under section 175(1) of the Act.

(2)

The Corporation may only consider the results of a previous audit if—

(a)

an applicant requests that the Corporation do so; and

(b)

the relevant audit—

(i)

was carried out in the previous 24 months; and

(ii)

is the most recent audit of those practices carried out under section 175(1) of the Act.

(3)

Despite subclause (1), the Corporation may not rely on a previous audit to determine if it is satisfied,—

(a)

in the case of rental service vehicles, that the safety management practices meet the requirements specified in Schedule 5:

(b)

in all other cases, that the safety management practices meet the requirements relating to the following matters:

(i)

fleet safe driving practices (heading 2 of Parts 1, 2, and 3 of Schedule 4):

(ii)

fleet vehicle selection and maintenance (heading 3 of Parts 1, 2, and 3 of Schedule 4).

(4)

To avoid doubt, a previous audit may include an audit carried out before these regulations were made or came into force.

8 Restriction on further applications

If an applicant has been notified under clause 5(4) that the relevant safety management practices do not meet the prescribed standards, he or she may not make another application under clause 2 within 6 months after the notification.

Vehicles in programme

9 Corporation may require further audits in certain circumstances

(1)

The Corporation may at any time require that an audit be carried out of the safety management practices to which a fleet of vehicles in the Fleet Safety Incentive Programme is subject, if—

(a)

the Corporation believes, on reasonable grounds, that the safety management practices might no longer meet the prescribed standards:

(b)

the registered owner of any of the vehicles in the fleet becomes insolvent, files for bankruptcy, or goes into liquidation:

(c)

the Corporation believes, on reasonable grounds, that there is a significant change in 1 or more of the following that could affect the safety management practices:

(i)

the ownership of vehicles in the fleet:

(ii)

the management of the fleet:

(iii)

if the registered owner is not a natural person, the ownership, management, or company structure of the registered owner or the financial group of which the registered owner is a member.

(2)

After an audit under this clause, the Corporation must determine whether the safety management practices meet the prescribed standards and, if so, whether they meet the standards to a bronze, silver, or gold level.

(3)

The Corporation must notify the registered owner or owners of its determination under subclause (2).

(4)

If the Corporation is satisfied that the safety management practices meet the prescribed standards, the vehicles are deemed to remain in the Fleet Safety Incentive Programme for a period of 4 years beginning on the first day after the date on which the Corporation notifies the registered owner or owners under subclause (3).

(5)

If a new rate of levy applies to the vehicles as a result of the Corporation’s determination under subclause (2), the new rate applies in relation to each vehicle from the first day of the next licensing period for the vehicle after the date on which the Corporation notifies the registered owner under subclause (3).

(6)

To avoid doubt, clause 7 does not apply to audits under this clause.

(2)

If the Corporation is satisfied that the new vehicle is subject to the same safety management practices as the registered owner’s other Fleet Saver vehicles, then—
