There is no charge for doing so after which Oplas Transport Consultancy clients may contact them directly, to see if they are willing to act as the nominated Transport Manager.

Please Note: It is Oplas Transport Consultancy’s opinion That it is vital that both CPC Holder & Operators Licence Holder have an understanding of the Transport Manager’s role & the regulations & legal obligations associated with the position’s responsibilities, which in turn, shape the relationship. As Transport Manager & Standard Operator’s Licence Holder & before the use of External Transport Management is agreed

Restricted O/Licence Management

It is possible, not to be a Certificate of Professional Competence or CPC Holder & to manage transport operations on an Operator’s Licence. This is when the Operator’s Licence is a Restricted Operators Licence, sometimes known as an Own Account Licence. This is due to the fact, that it is not a requirement under Operator Licensing Regulations, to have a suitably qualified person i.e a CPC Holder nominated on a Restricted Operator’s Licence. In other words, the person carrying out any compliance work in relation to the use of a Restricted Operator’s Licence. Does not have to be a CPC Holder.

However, many Restricted Operator’s Licence Holders, are now using a Certificate of Professional Competence or CPC Holder, to help them maintain compliance with Operator Licensing Regulations. This is mainly because the Restricted Operators Licence Holder is the only party with legal responsibility, for compliance with the Operator Licensing Regulations. Unlike Standard Operator Licence Holders where the legal responsibility is equally shared with the CPC Holder. The other main reason is that the majority of Restricted Operator Licence Holders, have very little or no experience with operating vehicles under Operator Licensing Regulations & the transport operation may only be a consequence of their many commercial activities.

Therefore as part of their system of work for maintaining compliance with Operator Licensing Regulations, many now are engaging a CPC Holder generally on a freelance/sub-contract/self-employed basis. To give advice & administration assistance with managing their Restricted Operator’s Licence. When this is the case the Operator Licensing Regulations consider them as a Transport Consultant, not a nominated Transport Manager. They will not be named on the Restricted Operators Licence as they would be on a Standard Operators Licence
