About Mandatory Periodical inspections
Fleet managers need to be sure of their vehicles, of the safety of their goods, and of their drivers. DEKRA offers our professional customers a range of convenient, digital, and flexible solutions, to make the different stages easier, from the appointment to the invoice, limiting downtime and disruption in our customer business. In addition to vehicle inspection, we offer several services in a same location, such as truck lift and truck crane inspection, tachygraph check, and ADR inspections (depending on local regulations).
We develop services to meet the specific needs of our professional customers: in some countries, we may propose pick up solutions, dedicated slots, on site services as example.
Mandatory inspections relate to the following functions:
- Braking system
- Steering system
- Lighting equipment, and others electrical equipment parts
- Axles, wheels, tires, chassis, frame, structure and any parts attached to them
- Other equipment: seat belts, horn…
- Exhaust system
- Emission checks may be an integral part of the inspection, or be done separately from the safety inspection, depending on local regulations.
Regulations define the defects of each inspection item. Depending on the criticality of the defect, a re- test must be carried out after the necessary corrective actions have been made.
