Hyrde awarded Keurmerk RRS

From today, the Hyrde Fleet Telematics travel log system is entitled to officially carry the Keurmerk Ritregistratiesystemen (RRS). This will enable Hyrde, the IoT company within VolkerWessels, to differentiate itself on quality within the ritregistratie sector and allow current and future customers to benefit from the added value of the quality mark.


At an official ceremony, Hyrde’s Managing Director Gerard van den Houten accepted the certificate from Martin Huisman, chairman of the Stichting Keurmerk Ritregistratiesystemen. The award confirms that Hyrde, a subsidiary of VolkerWessels Telecom, has a quality product – one that it is already being employed by several of VolkerWessels’ 130 operating companies and can now be used to set itself apart in the mobility sector.

Quality and assurance

Keurmerk RRS is the only independent industry standard for travel log systems that generates comprehensive records for tax purposes. Products with the quality mark meet the toughest requirements for quality and reliability as well as complying with the strictest rules in terms of tax law, fraud protection and privacy. By choosing Hyrde Fleet Telematics, users are assured of a 100% accurate and complete record of every trip.

“Certification by Stichting Keurmerk Ritregistratiesystemen confirms that Hyrde Fleet Telematics’ products and services meet a very high standard of competence. This assures our customers of a reliable, safe and GDPR-proof travel log system. Commercially, the quality mark gives us a competitive advantage in the market and will enable us to develop supplementary services in the field of telematics”, says Gerard van den Houten of Hyrde.

Martin Huisman, chairman of Stichting Keurmerk Ritregistratiesystemen, commended Hyrde on achieving the quality mark. “Hyrde’s use of the quality mark shows that Keurmerk RRS is widely supported within the sector, both with established organizations and relative newcomers like Hyrde. Keurmerk RRS stands for quality which is again confirmed by this support.”

Objective and independent

Keurmerk RRS is issued by the independent Stichting Keurmerk Ritregistratiesystemen. The award of the quality mark to Hyrde was based on an objective assessment by external auditor Mazars. In order to assure long-term quality, all suppliers are periodically monitored after being awarded Keurmerk RRS. In addition, travel log systems with the quality mark are always sold with a numbered certificate.
