DVSA seeks views on changes to tachograph centre rules
The Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency launched yesterday a review on proposals to improve rules for approved tachograph centres. These ATCs - of which there are around 600 in Great Britain - install, calibrate and inspect tachographs, which record information about driving time, speed and distance. Proposals include:
* removing the requirement for ATCs to offer analogue tachograph calibration
* reviewing the site dimensions to allow smaller sites to be used
* updating the ATC manual
The DVSA would like to receive your views so that it can fully understand any negative (including unintended) effects of the proposals on your business, so an informed decision can be made. It has already spoken with a number of important industry bodies to review the current manual. It now wants to gather the views of more people who will be affected, including ATCs and vehicle operators.
The review will close on 9 November 2016 and you can give your views on the proposals at:
