A form attesting activities of a driver with a view to ensure compliance with drivers' hours rules was established by Decision 2009/959/EU amending Decision 2007/230/EC . This form comes only in addition to the tachograph records and should reflect activities which could not be recorded via tachograph due to technical reasons.
Regulation (EU) 165/2014 prohibits Member States from imposing the use of the form attesting for driver's activities while away from the vehicle but at the same time in justified situations when for technical reasons the tachograph records are not possible, Member States are recommended to accept the standard attestation form.
All the fields in this form must be filled in and it must be signed both by the company representative and by the driver in order to be valid. For self-employed drivers, the driver signs once as the company and once as the driver.
The text of the form may not be modified.
Only the signed original is valid.
The form may be printed on paper containing the company logo and contact details, but the fields containing the company information must also be filled in.
Regulation (EU) No 165/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 4 February 2014 on tachographs in road transport, repealing Council Regulation (EEC) No 3821/85 on recording equipment in road transport and amending Regulation (EC) No 561/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the harmonisation of certain social legislation relating to road transport
