Interim amendments

There are times when an amendment to the VIRM would be beneficial to be introduced immediately rather than wait until the next scheduled amendment.

For this, the Transport Agency has developed interim amendments which outline changes to an inspection process and indicate when the change comes into place. They are a stop-gap instruction to fill in until the next amendment at which time they will be incorporated into the relevant VIRM.
