The functional and technical specification for the Electronic Work Diary (EWD) was developed in response to decisions made by relevant Ministers to implement the EWD as an alternative to the traditional Written Work Diary (WWD).

The Specification is currently in draft form, and is being finalised in consultation with the Telematics Industry Group (TIG).

The Specification will articulate the functional and technical interactions between key parties involved in the operation of the EWD:

  • Authority
  • EWD System Manager
  • EWD Service Providers
  • Drivers
  • Transport Operators
  • Record Keepers
  • Authorised Officers.

Once the Specification is finalised, it is anticipated that TCA will commence the certification process of EWD Service Providers during 2017.
