The following is taken from an email circular released by the Department for Transport:
From 21 May 2022, operators or users of vans or other light goods vehicles over 2.5 tonnes and up to 3.5 tonnes in weight for hire and reward will need to obtain an International Operator’s Licence.
This includes a requirement to appoint a designated transport manager with a valid Transport Manager Certificate of Professional Competence (TM CPC) qualification.
This new requirement is part of the UK/EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement.
A temporary exemption may be available from the TM CPC requirement for those with appropriate experience of managing light goods vehicles in the form of temporary transport manager status.
