Load safety within the European Union


The European Commission in Brussels have recently proposed a more consistent approach towards load safety throughout all member states.

It has been discussed that enforcement is irregular from member state to member state, and one standard and assessment process should be used in all countries.

The UK’s approach to load security has been agreed to fit with this new proposal, however some other member states may have to change practice when Regulation 1071/2009 is amended by the European Commission.
