Chain of Responsibility

Chain of Responsibility (CoR)

Chain of Responsibility (CoR), part of Compliance and Enforcement (C&E) legislation, was introduced into Western Australia in 2015. This legislation imposes obligations on all parties in the supply chain to ensure the weights of sea freight containers and their contents being transported by road are accurately stated. It takes responsibility beyond the drivers and road transport operators to the consignors of the freight, the vehicle owners, the packers, management and receivers. All supply chain participants are required to take all reasonable steps to ensure compliance. See more information on the Chain of Responsibility page, Main Roads WA website. To assist supply chain participants in preparing for CoR legislation, Fremantle Ports and the WA Port Operations Task Force have developed online and smartphone tools. See information about a CoR/SOLAS app for truck drivers and A Guide to Container Weight Declarations below.
