Northern Ireland compliance package

What is the service?

Goods vehicle operators in Northern Ireland have recently faced one of the most significant changes to transport legislation in over 40 years, with the introduction of operator licensing. This now means, whether you operate one vehicle or a large commercial fleet, that it is imperitive your transport operation remains legally compliant with these new laws governing the industry.

FTA's compliance package has been specifically developed for businesses who operate a small number of commercial vehicles, or those for whom transport may not be their key function. It provides a simple, cost-effective way of ensuring compliance with your operator licence requirements and domestic drivers’ hours rules through access to a suite of services at discounted rates, with easy payment plans.

What does the compliance package comprise?

Operator Licence Compliance Information Service

With the Operator Licence Compliance Information Service (OLCIS) as the compulsory core product, you have the option of adding on any of the additional services to compile your own made-to-measure compliance package. The more services you add on to your package the higher the cost saving will be.
