Chain of Responsibility
Chain of Responsibility (CoR), introduced into WA in 2015, recognises the responsibilities that others have in the transportation of goods by road, beyond that of just the driver and operator. It means anyone who has control in the transport chain can be held legally accountable if by action, inaction or demand, they cause or contribute to road safety breaches.
