Transporting dangerous goods?
We help you comply!
Trek Card (Pty) Ltd was established to produce online, or as free standing packages, Transport Emergency Cards. Until recently only the CEFIC TREMCARD was allowed to be used for the transportation of dangerous goods in SA.
National and international regulations require that the drivers of vehicles transporting dangerous goods have documentation outlining the hazards and precautions for the goods in the load that they are transporting. Transport Emergency Cards (TRECs) fill this requirement.
Amendments to South African standards and the introduction of a new standard now allows the use of a South African Transport Emergency Card (TREC) in accordance with the new South African standard SANS 10232-4.
Trek Card (Pty) Ltd has taken care to produce TRECs in conformance with that standard.
TREC Software is available on-line and in packages that will facilitate integration with in-house billing and shipping systems
The requirements for TRECs are outlined in SABS Standard Number SANS 10231 (Operational Requirements) and SANS 10232-4, Transport of Dangerous Goods Emergency Information Systems, Part 4 - Transport Emergency Card, which are taken up in the regulations. It is therefore a transgression by law for the driver not to have a TREC in his possession.
It is the responsibility of the operator to ensure that the TREC is available at all times, when on public road, for any dangerous goods being transported.
