Pass-2-Load inspection expiry date and label colour changes.

What has changed?

  • SLP has changed the way expiry dates are applied under the Vehicle Compliance Program.
  • Pass-2-Load, Hatch & Vent and Hydrostatic test expiry dates are now automatically extended to the end of month.
  • No matter what date the inspection is completed, expiry date will be extended to end of month.
  • Commencing 1st of November 2017 the need for SLP Pass-2-Load inspection labels to be coloured either Yellow or Blue according to the period the label expires will cease.
  • Once all SLP’s current stocks of Blue labels are sold, SLP will issue “Yellow” labels only.

 Why change?

  • SLP has made this change to allow transport operators the ability to better manage and align their vehicle maintenance and inspection requirements allowing for product hose, extinguisher and vehicle servicing to be aligned with a Pass-2-Load, Hatch & Vent and Hydrostatic test inspection.
  • With the introduction of the SLP electronic vehicle inspection system (VCP) and our increased independent inspection program the need to change Label colours in line with the expiry is not required.
  • How the program is used and monitored has significantly change from the original creation of the Pass-2-Load  scheme, and this is just further streamlining the way the inspection program is managed.
  • In a recent review we found that at high number of SLP users either had no awareness of why we used the coloured labels, or were not using the label colour as a means of identifying if the vehicle was expired. While many others simply found the colour system process was confusing.

Vehicle Compliance Program System expiry date change

  • The VCP IT system will automatically set the Pass-2-Load expiry date to 6 months plus the required number of days to end of month. A note is displayed in the system advising of this when the inspection is being entered. The same applies to Hatch & Vent 2 ½ yearly and 5 yearly Hydrostatic tests.
  • Note:

(The expiry date will be set to the end of the month regardless of the date selected)

  • The system will allow for expiry dates to be manually changed in the system to any date under end of month allowing users to manually select a date less than six months end of month due to a Standard or legislated compliance date that needs to be complied with.
  • If you are experiencing any problems with the system or a vehicle expiry date please contact us at SLP and we will work with you to rectify the problem.

Benefits label colour change

  • In the future SLP Inspection locations will only need to keep the one coloured label in stock.
  • The change will remove confusion over the way the labels are issued and monitored.

    • From 1st this month both yellow and blue labels are acceptable to fit to customer vehicles.
