Earned Recognition was launched by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) as business as usual at the CV Show in April. Since then over 50 organisations have achieved the Earned Recognition status and will benefit from running a compliance first operation and fewer roadside checks from the DVSA. The latest blog post on “Moving On” from the DVSA provides useful feedback for any operator considering earned recognition. The DVSA is looking to grow the number of operators participating in the scheme to 10% by the end of the year. Descartes is a validated IT supplier for the earned recognition scheme with KPIs for drivers’ hours from Smartanalysis. Operators wanting to get automated KPI reports and emailed SmartAlerts on their drivers’ hours compliance can do so with Smartanalysis. This will enable them to take advantage of the KPI reports in Smartanalysis to achieve earned recognition when they are ready to do so.
