Chain of Responsibility

The chain of responsibility refers to the chain of people involved in transporting of goods by road.  It extends the liability for road law offences to include several off road parties who have previously not been liable for such offences. Under the chain of responsibility, every person is held accountable for conduct that affects compliance in a transport operation and
may be deemed liable in the event of a breach of the legislation through their actions or inactions.
