Documents containing the Senior Traffic Commissioner’s Statutory Guidance and Statutory Directions (Statutory Documents — SD) were first published in December 2011. The first one (SD 0) outlines the legal basis upon which the Senior TC gives such (non-mandatory) guidance and (mandatory) directions to the other TCs and their staff and the other documents each cover one of the areas for which TCs are responsible when exercising their duties over operators.
