For the proper implementation of the regulations concerning the tachograph, it is essential that every driver holds only one valid driver card. Therefore, Member States must ensure the uniqueness of the driver card they issue by exchanging information with the other Member States. The TACHOnet is a telematic network in operation across the EU to allow an automated exchange of information between Member States.

Recommendation on TACHOnet:

The latest tachograph legislation (Commission Regulation (EU) No 1266/2009 ) requires Member States to exchange electronically information in order to ensure that the tachographs are properly used to apply the social road transport rules. The Commission adopted on 13 January 2010 a Recommendation praising Member States to use the TACHOnet messaging system to exchange information on truck and coach drivers when checking tachograph cards. This Recommendation provides the necessary guidelines to implement this new requirement.
