Tachograph Chart AnalysisNemesis™ Tachograph Analysis Systems are sophisticated and comprehensive. There are three fundamental systems:
Working Time AnalysisThe award winning Nemesis™ tachograph chart screening system can be used for compliance and status reporting for Working Time and Drivers’ Hours Law analysis. The system seamlessly integrates Working Time and Drivers' Hours using the tachograph chart - enabling compliance reporting, status prediction etc on one simple to use set of printouts.
When Does It Apply From?The Road Transport Directive, commonly know as the Working Time Directive, came into force on the 4th April, 2005.
Who Does It Apply To?Any worker involved in operations subject to EU Drivers’ Hours Regulations.
Any worker forming part of the travelling team ie crew members, other travelling staff, trainees, apprentices etc.
What Is Working Time?Working time is calculated by adding driving time and duty time together. It does not include breaks or periods of availability.
LimitsWorking time must not exceed 60 hours per week. Working time must not exceed an average of 48 hours per week, this being calculated over the duration of the reference period.
If working hours total between 6 and 9 hours per day, a break(s) of at least 30 minutes in total is required. Working Time should be interrupted with a break(s) of 45 minutes in total if working hours total more than 9 hours a day. These breaks can be split in to blocks of 15 minutes or more.
EU rules (daily driving limit, 4˝ hour driving and break, daily and weekly rest etc) still apply in addition to Working Time.
Reference PeriodThis can be typically either 17 weeks (etc) or 26 weeks. (There are also other types of Reference Period.)
Types Of Activity (Symbols On Tachograph)
Period Of AvailabilityGenerally speaking a period of availability is waiting time whose duration is known about in advance, by the worker.
Night WorkersIf you work at any time between midnight and 04.00am, you are classed as a night worker. Working time is limited to 10 hours in a 24-hour period for night workers. (10 hours can be exceeded by agreement.)
Tachograph Chart CompletionAll periods of activity must be recorded (driving, duty, periods of availability and breaks). In addition, sick days and holidays must also be recorded.
