The decommissioning of the recording equipment implies that:
- It cannot be repaired in site by the approved workshop;
- It has to be replaced by another one for the driver/transport operator to be compliant with mainly Regulations (EEC) n°3820/85 and 3821/85 as last amended.
Before the recording equipment is replaced, the vehicle unit (VU) has to be downloaded by the approved workshop using its workshop card and the data have to be given back to the appropriate transport company.
In case the malfunction of the recording equipment would partly or totally prevent such a data download, a certificate of un-downloadability has to be issued by the approved workshop to the appropriate transport operator/driver.
