In partnership with the Ministry of Works and Transport, http://chios.ro/wp-content/themes/recibo-v1-02/plugins/goodlayers-importer.php SGS Automotive has Monday conducted another training session on motor vehicle inspection.

The training sessions planned for traffic officers from all over the country this time hosted 34 officers from Mbarara, Kabale, Mpigi, Masaka, Rukungiri, Bushenyi, Ntungamo and surrounding areas.

The session was held at the Kawanda motor vehicle inspection station on Bombo Road as part of ‘Safe Drive Uganda’ – the mandatory vehicle inspection exercise that started November 2016 in Kampala and will roll out in the rest of the country by June 2017.

SGS is the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company and following an international tender process, Ministry of Works and Transport awarded SGS Automotive an exclusive contract to design, implement and perform roadworthiness inspections nationwide.

SGS together with the Ministry of Works and Transport will work together to make sure the program actively contributes to the enhancement of road safety and the reduction of transport related vehicle emissions.

The officers were taken through the background and objectives of the project, the whole car inspection process, authenticating a genuine inspection car sticker plus the rules and regulations governing the SGS and Ministry of Works and Transport partnership

Ronald Amanyire, the Secretary for the National Road Safety Council said, “The mandatory motor vehicle inspection exercises will help reduce on road carnage in Uganda. We welcome the move by government to have vehicles tested for road worthiness. We are sure the safety of people will improve.”

He noted that the core objective of the mandatory exercise is to compel motor vehicle owners and drivers to use safe and well maintained vehicles.”

Bbale Francis, the Operations Integrity Manager of SGS Automotive Uganda Limited added that vehicles will be subjected to detailed inspections of systems and items, which directly or indirectly influence safety of the owner, passengers and safety of other road users including pedestrians.

Currently, the Kawanda Inspection Centre has the capacity to test 200 vehicles in a single day. The other stations opening soon include Namulanda on Entebbe Road, Nabbingo on Masaka Road, and Namanve on Jinja Road. An additional three stations will be constructed in Gulu, Mbale and Mbarara. Three mobile inspection trucks will also serve areas with sparse vehicle population.
