The industry associations have jointly issued best management guidance to companies on how to manage their fleets with respect to compliance in the face of the challenges presented by COVID-19. However, the ongoing disruption resulting from the pandemic makes it unlikely that these processes will be completed by the compliance deadline, since the necessary service providers may not have the capacity to meet demand in the timeframe remaining and in the face of likely ongoing restrictions.
