New rules for cargo securing in Spain
The regulation, due to come into effect on 20 May, will impose new cargo securing obligations on hauliers.
The rules will apply to all vehicles travelling at speeds over 25 kph. Inspectors will have the right to check if the cargo is properly secured to ensure it does not pose a threat to road safety, property, health or natural environment. Inspectors will be allowed to conduct tests to check the cargo’s stability during various maneuvers.
