Consultation Period for Recovery Standard extended till end of year



The Recovery Standard Consultation Document can be accessed via the link on the new ERRI website homepage on

According to Mark Crawley, ERRI’s Chairman, “Such has been the interest in the Consultation Document so far that we believe an extension to the original deadline will enable ERRI to achieve a far more balanced view from all the many comments and observations put forward by interested parties. Stakeholders within ERRI have worked exceptionally hard to develop this ground breaking Recovery Standard with the objective of it becoming internationally recognised standard. The deadline extension will ensure that everyone in the industry gets a more detailed opportunity to comment on and ultimately influence the development and implementation of the Standard.”

ERRI has been involved with the Recovery Standard Licence since 2010 when it was tasked by the wider recovery and rescue industries to investigate the viability of a Recovery Standard Licence that is specific to the recovery industry requirements.

“The Recovery Standard Consultation Document has been developed as a result of concerns raised from people within the roadside assistance and recovery industries that felt the need for better standards and improved operating practices,” added Mark Crawley.

The Consultation Document has been developed by the Standards and Regulatory Committee that forms part of the ERRI organisation, whose members come from the various sectors of the industry including operators, associations, work providers and industry advisers.
