For example, all EU Member States have to check every year on at least 5% of the total number of registered vehicles on the road.
As of 20 May next, a risk classification system will be introduced based on this system, which will allow the most risky companies to be checked more closely and, above all, more frequently.
There are of course a number of general rules, the basic principle remains that the cargo securing system must be able to withstand certain forces during transport. You can also see that, in addition to this, different standards are applied in different countries and regions. The most important aspect here, of course, is liability.
In the Netherlands the carrier is liable for damage caused between receipt and delivery of the goods.
