Smart Tachograph Regulation
The regulation has already become enshrined in UK law as of 2016 and should make it easier for transport operations monitoring with a reduced potential for tachograph fraud. In conjunction using ITS – Intelligent Transportation Systems will make it easier to download data to fleet management systems for transport managers. This will in turn be subject to them fulfilling their own data storage criteria and data processing alongside general data protection regulation (GDPR).
Existing technology in the the form of digital tachographs will remain in operation until then and is still readily available through manufacturers releasing stock vehicles to the market including those for the ‘Readymix’ industry.
