Digital tachograph instruction

The EC social regulations with the special rules on driving time and rest periods are an important topic for both entrepreneurs and driving personnel and are always the focus of discussions.

The revised tachograph regulation (EU) No. 165/2014 has been in force since March 2, 2016. This also includes an extended training obligation for entrepreneurs. If there is no proof that the driving personnel has been trained and instructed, the transport company is fully liable for their violations. At GRUMA, you will therefore receive the appropriate training - also gladly directly at your site.

All info on instruction at a glance

If the company cannot prove that its drivers have been instructed, the company is fully liable for violations committed by its drivers. For this reason, it is very important to have a signed confirmation from the driving personnel that they have been instructed. This is included in the personnel file. The company and drivers are also obliged to use the monitoring device properly. The aim is for the driving personnel to master the devices used in the fleet (analog and digital control devices) (including supplements, operation, printouts).
