New Rules Applying to the Transport of Diesel on the Road

Don't get caught out by the change in legislation regarding road tow diesel bowsers. 

Thursday 9th May 2019 saw new UK law come into effect that ended a 15-year exemption for diesel bowsers that do not adhere to ADR road carriage requirements.

What does it mean to me as a contractor? 

If you transport fuels in a bowser that’s classed as a tank rather than an intermediate bulk container (IBC), or it was manufactured before 10th May 2004, you will no longer be permitted to transport them on public roads without meeting the IBC standards.

Read the FISA Bulletin for more background and information.
