IRU Position on the Digital Tachograph, (2005)
While striving for a strict, harmonised and tamper proof enforcement of social regulations to enhance road safety and fair competition, the IRU also fully considers the numerous legal, technical and administrative outstanding issues that should be addressed before implementing technical devices such as the digital tachograph. The IRU therefore recommends postponing the introduction of the device or introducing it on a voluntary basis with a negotiated moratorium on enforcement in all countries where EU-registered vehicles circulate, until all necessary measures are in place.
