RSA confirms Smart Tachograph retrofit requirements


The Road Safety Authority (RSA) has confirmed that as part of the EU Mobility Package I, the new Smart Tachograph Version 2 is required to be retrofitted to vehicles operating internationally.

The timeline is as follows:

* 31 December 2024 for vehicles equipped with an analogue or digital non-smart tachograph (vehicles typically first registered prior to 14th June 2019).

* 18 August 2025 for vehicles equipped with a Smart Tachograph Version 1 (vehicles typically first registered between 15th June 2019 and 20th August 2023).

* 1 July 2026 for vehicles where the maximum permissible mass of the vehicle, including any trailer, or semi-trailer, exceeds 2.5 tonnes (LCV’s).

Vehicles operating internationally within the EU, including those travelling to, through or from the United Kingdom are required to comply with the tachograph retrofit requirements from the specified dates above.

As there are significant numbers of vehicles in Ireland that will require a Smart Tachograph Version 2 to be retrofitted by the dates specified above, the Road Safety Authority is encouraging all a ected operators to book their vehicles into an Approved Tachograph Workshop as soon as possible to have the retrofit work carried out.
