All BioChem Employees, managers, executives, drivers, members, agents, etc are bound by TruckersMP rules and regulations which are due to change as TruckersMP staff seem fit.
Since TruckersMP updates their rules and terms of service so often, it is impossible for BioChem staff to repost all the rules updates. You can find a copy of TruckersMP Terms of Service and Conditions @ https://truckersmp.com/rules
It is vital and of the utmost importance that all BioChem members follow ALL TruckersMP rules at all time and show respect to the companies and other VTCs on the road.
BioChem Industries is NOT responsible for what acts that YOU commit on the road. If you find yourself banned from TMP Service due to your violation of rules, do not bother our TruckersMP Staff Members in our discord or you will face demotion/termination. File an appeal and move on.
USER'S REPRESENTATION OF BIOCHEM INDUSTRIES:
§§1 Representation of the Company:
While we have a fun filled, no filter environment when it comes to language and content in our public and private communication centers (Discord), we do still have some rules that need to be followed while operating on the roads as a BioChem Driver in TruckersMP.

Communications Hub Rules and Regulations:
§§1 BioChem Discord CODE OF CONDUCT:
Discord is a place where we meet, hold company convoys, have our rules, etc etc. It does have it uses and misuses. The following is a guide to prevent misuse or violations according to new accommodations due to issues of miscommunication.
1.) Information is here to help you succeed. Management is here almost 24/7. With that in mind, when you ask us for help, and we are responding, you need to follow directions. If a manager tells you to go into a voice channel for further instructions and to get help, then you need to follow the instructions. We have a specific way that we want things set up for you so it runs at its smoothest and at its best. (Strongly enforced)
2.) IT IS 100% FORBIDDEN TO POST PORNOGRAPHY IN GENERAL CHAT.

Warnings and possible suspension or extermination from the company can result from continuous violations of this clause. Reports made by other companies about BioChem Drivers are thoroughly investigated by the Executive Team of BioChem Industries International.
5.) Not responding to managers whether you are active in the company after 20 days will result in your kick from the server. As this seems a reasonable amount of time to get in touch with someone about your situation, you will have to get in touch with Human Resources to get back into the company.

7.) During convoy times managers may use Push to talk channels in order to maintain control of the convoy for the fulfillment of the convoy.

BioChem Industries speed limit for the European Union is 60 mph or 99 kph. Exceeding 62 MPH requires the driver to abandon the load.
§§2 Monthly Minimum Driver Miles:
AS of 04/02/2021, the minimum driver miles required by every individual and executive of BioChem Industries International is 2000 miles or 3218 kilometers.
§§3 BioChem Load Violation Enforcement Act:
1.) As of 3/13/2018 all drivers (management and executive members included) are hereby bound to the following:
Drivers are not to turn in loads that have exceeded company speed limit. If a driver EXCEEDS our maximum speed limit, they are to abandon the load and restart. You are NOT to turn in loads that have exceeded our maximum speed limit. Offenses occurring shall be immediately written up, no warning, by Executive Teamand @BioChem Lower Management. Being as this will be a formal write up, this would automatically be considered a second offense under Rules, Section 8. (Refer to section 8)
2.) Any load with a damage capacity surpassing 14% percent are hereby bound by the Act to fully abandon the load. Drivers are not to be turning loads passed 14 percent. Failure to abide by this mandate will result in a write-up. (Exceptions can be given by management staff for convoy purposes or for miles purposes)
§§4 Trucksbook Client Application Requirement:
Trucksbook Client is our main source of load logging. You must have an account with Trucskbook.eu. Every manager within the company is required to help new members into the Trucksbook and download and install the client. Apply here to the company: https://trucksbook.eu/company/29697
No one is exempt from using Trucksbook and the Client. If you are found not to be using Trucksbook while making deliveries, you will have 2 warnings, followed by a ban from the company for not abiding by this law. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS.
§§5 Virtual Speditor Rule and Job Market Amendment:
1.) From 12/11/17 and on, the Virtual Speditor/Route Maker will be mandatory on all convoys with BioChem Industries.
2.) No external contracts. We are not getting enough loads done. We need to be able to go our company limit. (EXTERNAL CONTRACTS ARE ALLOWED FOR WORLD OF TRUCKS COMPETITIONS AND EVENTS!)
3.) Our speed limit that we go on all highways during all convoys is 75 MPH. If you want to be part of company convoys, you must have a Freight Market load. NO EXCEPTIONS.
§§6 Convoy Rules and Regulations:
1.) Convoy speed is always 75MPH or 120KPH on American Truck Simulator. Convoy speed is always 55MPH or 88KPH on Euro Truck Simulator 2.
2.) Convoys will leave at the time posted and not later than what is posted by the host of the convoy.
3.) Any member from BioChem Industries International is allowed to host their own event in our discord as long as it follows TruckersMP Rules and our driving regulations as stated in §§1.
Convoy hosts need to give at least 24 hours notice to the start of convoy time when hosting a convoy.
4.) BioChem's Motto is Safety, Quality and Professionalism and this applies to our convoys. Space between Trucks needs to be at least 125 meters. This information is located in the admin panel by pushing tab in TruckersMP.
5.) Staggering: Staggering a convoy is having trucks in opposing lanes in a convoy to ensure convoy control in case of lag. This will be reinforced at 55MPH or 88KPH. This means when all trucks have entered the highway or freeway and have reached 55 MPH or 88 KPH we will start ensuring there are not driving sitting in front or behind another member. When a truck approaches at the rear, we must move all trucks to the right hand lane to ensure we are not blocking them which would be a violation of TruckersMP Rules regarding blocking.
6.) Utilizing rest stops, weigh stations, and other suitable areas where there is less traffic during convoys to stop is highly important when planning a convoy. This is for our safety and other drivers on the road. The side of the road is for emergencies only. If a driver has an emergency during the convoy, the convoy can only pull over at a rest area or a gas station that can accommodate everyone. We do not stop on the side of the road any longer for safety reasons.

1st Offense: The violator of policies shall receive one (1) verbal warning. This warning shall be sent confidentially to the President of BioChem Industries.
