South African standards and the introduction of a new standard now allow the use of a South African Transport Emergency Card (Trec) in accordance with the new South African standard SANS 10232-4, says Peter Bush of Trek Card.
“Some dangerous goods carriers are still using the European standard, the Cefic Trem Card. The SABS has outlined the standard for the South African transport emergency card in SABS Standard Number SANS 10231 (Operational Requirements) and SANS 10232-4, Transport of Dangerous Goods Emergency Information Systems, Part Four,” he states.
“The Trec standard has been established to make the Transport Emergency Card particularly usable by South African operatives, be they drivers, emergency services or transport organisations in a clear, concise and readable format.
“Trek Card has compiled a range of Transport Emergency Card solutions that are adaptable to suit specific requirements at a cost that is very attractive in today’s turbulent economic conditions,” says Bush.
