IAA Directors have agreed a Position Statement for Members providing emergency driving, which provides a ‘benchmark’ for Members.

Commenting, Alan Howson (Executive Chairman) said “This is the first Position Statement the Association has published, and affirms what Directors consider best practice for our Members.

It also demonstrates our maturity as an organisation to improve standards in the sector. Driving under emergency conditions is not something to be taken lightly and we’ve been very clear about where we as an Association stand on this.”

The Association recently contributed to the Consultation on the Commencement Orders relating to the De-Regulation Act 2015 currently going through Parliament, which included reference to this Position Statement.
