Digital Tachographs and legal obligations
The advent of the Digital Tachograph has radically revolutionized road transport, while ensuring better control and therefore greater safety, it makes the management system of a goods / people transport company more complex.
As is known, the digital tachograph records all data relating to driving, speed and rest in its memory.
According to Regulation (EC) No. 2135/98. (GU n. 86 of 12/04/2006) these data must be “downloaded”, “evaluated” and “archived” for any checks by the competent bodies and kept for at least one year.
The frequency with which to download the data is established by the aforementioned decree as follows:
- Driver card every 28 days.
- Every 90 days the mass memory of the tachograph.
Up to now, nothing could be simpler, except that every time the data is downloaded from the tachograph, they must MANDATORY be evaluated by the Owner / Manager of the fleet, who is required to check whether the drivers have committed infringements or not and notify them monthly a letter called “recall”.
Failure to perform these tasks entails onerous penalties and responsibilities for both the person who committed the infringement and the person who did not notify it.
It is also necessary to consider that, in the event of repeated non-compliance, also taking into account their extent and frequency, the company may incur in the suspension of the authorization for a period of from 1 to 3 months even to theLOSS OF HONORABILITY for transport, which be it own / third party or freight / people transport.
The transition to digital (from 1 May 2006 EC regulation 561/2006) took place in a very confusing way and very often it happens to meet badly informed control bodies on legislative matters.
It is therefore little wonder that several fleets have received very heavy undue fines.
The greater the size of the fleet, the greater the possibility of incurring penalties, because the greater the workload for the manager who will have to repeat the operations evaluation, storage and management of data for each of its vehicles and drivers every time data needs to be downloaded.
To date, there are dozens of solutions that lend themselves to carrying out this long-lasting work, but even the most complete of them always requires the precious time of a fleet manager and / or a person responsible for downloading data.
With the service package called “NO-PROBLEM”, the Owner / Manager of the fleet relieves the burden of downloading, storing and evaluating the data of digital tachographs; DMS carries out this work as an employee in charge, but it does it with a big difference, that is, DMS assumes the civil liability and safeguards the criminal one.
The package called “NO-PROBLEM” includes:
→ The assembly on free loan of a control unit for automatic data download with GPRS system (cellular data); all data are downloaded at pre-established intervals and simultaneously sent to a server.
→ Archiving of data for 12 months as per current legislation, and “Optional” transmission of a copy of them to the fleet.
→ Analysis of downloaded data and constant control of regulatory updates carried out by qualified personnel.
→ Fulfillment of obligations relating to any infringements (transmission of warning letters to be notified to drivers by the company).
→ Training of drivers on driving / rest hours and on the correct use of the analog / digital tachograph (Executive Decree No. 215 of 12/12/2016); information also necessary to reduce the number of infringements committed due to unawareness or legislative ignorance.
→ Technical / legal assistance; a center for assessing the fines received by the fleet was created; qualified personnel will send the company a technical report on the offense, and where possible clear reasons on which to base any appeal.
The first step after signing the DMS contract is the free loan installation of the control unit called TACHOWORLD GPRS (TW GPRS), the only control unit compatible with all models of digital tachographs, even the first versions released in 2006; The assembly can be carried out at an authorized Digital Tachograph center of your choice, by one of our DMS installers scattered throughout the nation, or directly at your office.
DMS (in Italian “Data management solution”) is the most advanced platform for data download and analysis, a truly unique hardware / software combination.
With the subscription of subscriptions modulated according to their needs, the fleet entering the DMS network will finally be able to free itself from the many commitments connected to the digital tachograph.
