It has come to light that the European Commission has stated that after the end of the Brexit transition period on 31 December 2020, Transport Management CPCs issued by an authority of the United Kingdom or a body authorised by the United Kingdom will no longer be valid in the EU. This includes those that have taken the exam through CILT and OCR, bodies that TTS uses for its accreditation.
Fleet Transport Magazine highlighted this issue in its article here.
The Department for Transport has been liaising with the European Commission and has received clarification that UK-qualified transport managers can be issued with a corresponding Irish Transport Management CPC but this has to be done BEFORE the end of the Brexit transition period.
Those affected should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating that they hold a UK-issued Transport Management CPC and wish to obtain a corresponding Irish certificate.
If you are one of the many affected by this issue please act now. Applications MUST be submitted to CILT by 31st December 2020.
