You may be operating a logbook system, or more commonly, a tachograph. Remember, it is necessary to maintain records and have reporting and downloading procedures in place to enable you to review infringements and take remedial action.

If you have concerns about your tachograph records contact us and we will conduct a Tachograph Audit and provide advice and guidance.
