Conclusions and Summary

Automatic air temperature monitoring equipment should be fitted to all refrigerated delivery vehicles since this is the most practical means of providing adequate defence of due diligence if there is a temperature related problem

Automatic air temperature monitoring equipment does not normally provide a means of recording product temperature, but does give a good indication of the performance of the vehicle refrigeration system.

It is a mandatory requirement to fit an automatic temperature monitoring device to record air temperature in vehicles used in primary distribution of quick-frozen foodstuffs.

Within transport, an automatic air temperature monitoring device must be approved by the competent authorities of the country in which the transport equipment is registered, and should have a current certificate of calibration valid for the range of temperatures it normally measures.

Temperature recordings must be dated and stored by the operator of the distribution vehicle for a minimum of one year.
