Novadata, the provider of a full range of Transport Training Courses, has launched a new Earned Recognition Preparation service, which will help organisations prepare to apply for membership of the new DVSA Earned Recognition scheme. The scheme is a new way for organisations with lorries, buses and coaches to prove they meet driver and vehicle standards.
The company will help operators to prepare for membership of the scheme, which is setting a new standard for UK transport industry best practice. As one of the first UK companies to be listed as an accredited auditor for the DVSA Earned Recognition Scheme, Novadata is ideally placed to provide assistance to operators planning to apply.
“We anticipate that most organisations who apply for membership will be well on the way to achieving compliance in the key areas which the scheme highlights, but there is usually room for improvement,” said Novadata Chairman Derek Broomfield. “By working with Novadata, the operator can put themselves ahead of the curve, strengthening their processes in advance of joining the scheme, so they can confidently make a successful application for Earned Recognition.”
Once their application has been accepted, Novadata will be carrying out the initial audit that is required in order to become a full member of the DVSA Scheme. When the operators become a full scheme member, they will be able to call on Novadata to assist them with the scheme’s regular reporting requirements for both Drivers Hours and maintenance.
In addition to being an auditor, Novadata is also an accredited provider of IT systems that are compatible with the Earned Recognition scheme, in the form of its market-leading web-based digital tachograph analysis services.
Operators wishing to apply for the DVSA Earned Recognition scheme should talk to Novadata to determine whether they wish to use its preparation service by calling 01376 552999 or visiting www.novadata.co.uk.
