Greek term or phrase: Βεβαίωση απογραφής ΔΧ
Πρόταση: Βεβαίωση απογραφής ΔΧ εκδοθείσα από την Ομοσπονδία Μεταφοράς Υγρών Καυσίμων καθώς το ηλεκτρονικό αναγνώσιμο σήμα με τα χαρακτηριστικά που καθορίζονται από τη σχετική υπουργική απόφαση με ημερομηνία 30.06.2007

Αυτή η παράγραφος αναφέρει τα έγγραφα που πρέπει ένα βυτιοφόρο όχημα να έχει μαζί του ανά πάσα στιγμή (το έγγραφο γενικά είμαι μια σύμβαση ανάμεσα σε έναν Πρατηριούχο και μια Εταιρία). Για το ΔΧ το μόνο που μπορώ να βρω online είναι "Δημόσιας Χρήσης" αλλά δεν βλέπω πώς θα μπορούσε να ταιριάζει σε αυτή την πρόταση

In the same way that a privately-owned car is often referred to as a ‘Ι.Χ.’ (Ιδιωτικής Χρήσης) in Greece, a lorry or truck that carries goods or liquids by charging for the service is often simply referred to as a ‘Δ.Χ.’ (Δημόσιας Χρήσης).

Ηοwever, in order to write this in a way that an English speaker would understand, one would have to add the word ‘vehicle’.

So, the translation of “Βεβαίωση απογραφής ΔΧ εκδοθείσα από την Ομοσπονδία Μεταφοράς Υγρών Καυσίμων” would be: “public use vehicle registration certificate issued by the Liquid Fuel Transportation Federation”.

You could also translate “Δ.Χ.” as “commercial vehicle”, but commercial vehicles (lorries, trucks and vans) can be privately owned by companies to transport their own goods, whereas the term “Δ.Χ.” applies only to commercial vehicles licensed to carry goods for others. As a compromise, you could possibly write, “public use commercial vehicle registration certificate”.

In England, a commercial vehicle licensed for public use is called a “public service vehicle”, see:

So, an alternative translation of your text would be, “public service vehicle registration certificate issued by the Liquid Fuel Transportation Federation”.

Sorry, that last note was incorrect. A "public service vehicle" is only a vehicle licenced to carry passengers.

Another term you could consider is, “public service goods vehicle”. See:

So, your translation would become, “public service goods vehicle registration certificate issued by the Liquid Fuel Transportation Federation”.

The disadvantage of using "public service goods vehicle" is that it can be confused as meaning "a goods vehicle owned by a public service (state service)".

Since your text is obviously referring to the road tanker vehicles owned and operated by its members, you could (at your discretion) leave the word ‘vehicle’ out, and simply write, “Public -use registration certificate issued by the Liquid Fuel Transportation Federation as the electronically readable marking with the characteristics that are defined by the relevant ministerial decision …”
