Testing of refrigerated vehicles
Radio Sintonia:

Technical inspections will be postponed to refrigerated goods transport vehicles in the Canary Islands.

The Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism guarantees the modification of Royal Decree 237/2000, of February 18, to postpone, for one year, the technical inspections of refrigerated goods transport vehicles in the Canary Islands, while the installation of a cold tunnel is processed to carry out these controls on the islands and avoid that Canarian professionals have to travel to the peninsula.


The senator for Fuerteventura and coordinator of the Territorial Socialist Group of the Canary Islands, Paloma Hernández, has held a meeting with the new Secretary General of Industry, Francisco Blanco, in which he confirmed that the Ministry is already studying this modification to make it effective as soon as possible.

Hernández transferred this request of the sector in the Canary Islands to the Upper House, through a motion presented last July, in which he requested the Ministry to facilitate the renewal of the certificates to these special vehicles.

Royal Decree 237/2000, of 18 February, establishes the technical specifications that special vehicles for the land transport of food products at regulated temperature must comply with and the procedures for control in accordance with the specifications. In this sense, in Spain there are only six cold tunnels that can issue ATP technical certificates, all of them in the peninsula, which makes access difficult and causes a high cost to those vehicles that are in the extra-peninsular regions of the Canary and Balearic Islands.

To these efforts developed by Senator Hernández, together with the Canarian deputy Pedro Sosa, are added the meetings held by the Minister of Public Works, Transport and Housing, Sebastián Franquis, with the Ministry, last November, to make this postponement effective.
In this sense, the Government of the Canary Islands is also promoting the creation of its own test stations on the islands, which allow controls to be carried out in Canarian territory, and avoid costly trips to other regions. The counselor Sebastián Franquis transferred to the Ministry that there are several specialized companies interested in developing these facilities on the islands, in order to have these stations during this 2023.
