Changes to tachograph rules for local journeys



Soon some vehicles will no longer have to be fitted with tachograph recording equipment and their drivers will not have to comply with EC driversí hour rules, but with GB driversí hours rules instead.

From 2 March 2015, a new European regulation Ė EU 165/2014 (PDF 2 MB) Ė will replace EEC 3821/85, setting out requirements for the construction, installation, use, testing and control of tachograph recording equipment.

The new regulation increases the journey distance for exemptions from 50km to 100km from the operatorís base. This will apply to:
vehicles or vehicle and trailer combinations with a maximum weight of 7,500 kg which are:

- used to carry materials, equipment or machinery for the driverís use in the course of his work and when driving the vehicle is not the driverís main activity

- used to carry goods and which are propelled by natural or liquefied gas or electricity
vehicles used to carry live animals from farms to local markets, or from markets to local farms or slaughterhouses

From 2 March 2015, these vehicles will no longer have to be fitted with tachograph recording equipment and the drivers will not have to comply with EC driversí hour rules. Instead, drivers of these vehicles must meet GB domestic driversí hours rules.
