Vehicle Inspection for Transportation Permits
The Fire Brigade Services Act empowers municipal fire departments to make regulations controlling the transport of flammables and other dangerous goods in the municipality. This involves the issue of transportation permits subject to certain requirements such as the suitability of vehicles. The inspection of vehicles used to transport dangerous goods is undertaken by the local authority and permits, valid for a period of 12 months are issued by the Chief Fire Officer or someone designated by him. In order to standardise this process, SANS 1157 - Transport of dangerous goods - Inspection requirements of road vehicles for the issue of municipal dangerous goods transport permits has been compiled to provide guidelines by providing an inspection checklist. This MiniCHART outlines the SANS 1557 requirements for different types of vehicles.
