Hillhead Heavy Plant show
July 2012 found the MTH team in attendance at the biannual " Hillhead Heavy Plant "show. This show takes place in a working quarry near Buxton and gives the perfect backdrop to display all the types of quarrying and mining type equipment used in those industries. The weather was on side and the photographs attached will verify that.
MTH had engineers on both the "Rockmate" stand and "Kleenoil". Both products were well received and a lot of positive interest was shown from a steady stream of visitors over the two days. MTH would like to thank both " Rockmate "and "Kleenoil" companies for the valuable experience gained over the two days.

Item 1: De-regulation of Tachograph Calibration Fees
The fee for calibration and periodic inspection of tachographs will be deregulated from 1st January 2012, following a consultation with the industry.
It is expected that deregulation of the fee will:
Allow the Approved Tachograph Centres and vehicle operators to negotiate a fair fee for the calibration and inspection of tachographs
Result in geographical variations in cost being accounted for
Better support vehicle operators looking to have tachographs calibrated during unsociable hours,
“Future-proof” calibration/inspection against technological changes which will affect how much work will be involved in the inspection and calibration of tachographs
Remove the need for future Government involvement in fee setting
Incentivise companies considering becoming an Approved Tachograph Centre
From 1st January 2012 the fees charged by Approved Tachograph Centres will be a commercial matter to be agreed with the customer presenting the vehicle.
The existing fees are still in place up to and including the 31st December 2011.
Any queries on this should be addressed to Tachographcalibrationfees2009@vosa.gov.uk
