Transport emergency cards in the form of TRECs are now as valid as Tremcards, according to the 15th amendment of the regulations under the National Road Traffic Act, 93 of 1996, published in Government Gazette 32258 on 27 May.

Regulation 273 amends the definition of ‘Tremcard’ to include TREC cards, defined in the local standard: “Transport emergency cards… can either be generated from the European Council of Chemical Manufactures’ Federation system, or in accordance with SANS 10232-4, listing the hazards and emergency information for a material being transported for use by the driver during an incident, or by the emergency services.”

The definition in SANS 10231: 2006, in Clause 3.1.25, determines ‘a card that lists the hazards and emergency information for a material being transported, that is intended for the use by the driver during an incident, or by emergency services. The transport emergency card can either be generated from the European Council of Chemical Manufacturers’ Federation (CEFIC) system, called a Tremcard, or in accordance with SANS 10232-4, called a TREC.’
