PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
There movement of passengers and freight between South Africa and its neighbours has increased phenomenally over the last decade. The formation of the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) forum has further facilitated agreements and bilateral multi-lateral arrangements between the various countries. South Africa, which is regarded as the economic powerhouse of the region, has become an attractive option for investors and for its services and its goods.

This unit standard reflects the need to improve the unimpeded flow by road of freight and passengers in the Southern Africa Development Community region, to liberalise market access progressively in respect of cross-border freight/passenger road transport and to reduce operational constraints for the cross-border road transport industry as a whole. It provides the learner with the competencies to provide co-operative and coordinated provision of advice, regulation, facilitation and law enforcement in respect of cross-border road transport by the public and private sectors.

Motor vehicles from other countries that do not comply with the Cross Border Road Transport Act, the National Road Traffic Act as well as the relevant South African National Standards Codes of Practice contribute to the challenging problem of maintaining road safety on South African roads.

Learners credited with this standard will be able to:
  • Demonstrate knowledge of the relevant regulatory framework for controlling the movement of cross border road transportation.
  • Explain permits that relate to cross-border road transportation.
  • Prosecute drivers and operators in terms of the relevant legislation.
