Mr Mountfort’s authorisation as a compliance certifier was varied on 19 August 2020 under regulation 6.20(1)(c) of the Health and Safety at Work (Hazardous Substances) Regulations 2017 on the grounds that Mr Mountfort:

  • failed to comply with the provisions in the Regulations requiring him to be satisfied that the relevant requirements are met before issuing location compliance certificates and tank wagon in service compliance certificates; and
  • failed to perform the functions of a compliance certifier in an objective manner that promotes safety

The variation to Mr Mountfort’s authorisation imposed a condition that:
  • required him to perform the functions of a compliance certifier in an objective manner that promotes safety; and
  • restricting him from using any third party to carry out any inquiry, inspection, assessment, or examination for the purposes of issuing a tank wagon in service compliance certificate or a hazardous substance location compliance certificate.

On 14 October 2021, this condition was varied under regulation 6.13 of the Health and Safety at Work (Hazardous Substances) Regulations 2017 to remove the restriction on his use of third parties in so far as it relates to the certification of hazardous substance locations when he is providing certification services under the auspices of Dangerous Goods Compliance Limited.

On 23 November 2021, this condition was further varied under regulation 6.13 of the Health and Safety at Work (Hazardous Substances) Regulations 2017 to remove the restriction on his use of third parties in so far as it relates to the certification of tank wagons in-service when he is providing certification services under the auspices of Dangerous Goods Compliance Limited.

Mr Mountfort was suspended on 2 March 2020 under regulation 6.16(1) of the Health and Safety at Work (Hazardous Substances) Regulations 2017 for tank wagons (in service), while subject to an investigation into his performance as a compliance certifier. This suspension was lifted on 22 September 2020.

Mr Mountfort was suspended on 22 February 2019 under regulation 6.16(1) of the Health and Safety at Work (Hazardous Substances) Regulations 2017 for tank wagons (in service), while subject to an investigation into his performance as a compliance certifier. This suspension was lifted on 14 May 2019.
