Cabs of commercial vehicles (until 2014)

1) OBJECTIVE

To improve road safety in the Community by issuing the EC type-approval certificate.

2) ACT

Council Directive 92/114/EEC of 17 December 1992 relating to external projections forward of the cab's rear panel of motor vehicles of category N [Official Journal L 409 of 31.12.1992].

3) SUMMARY

This Directive applies to external projections forward of the cab's rear panel of motor vehicles of category N. It relates only to the external surfaces and does not apply to external rear-view mirrors or accessories such as radio aerials or luggage racks.

EC vehicle type-approval is applied for by the vehicle manufacturer or his representative.

The manufacturer or his representative must provide various documents, notably a description of the type of vehicle.

EC type-approval is granted if the vehicle satisfies the requirements for ornaments and headlamp visors and rims.

Any alteration to the type of vehicle or its external projections must be notified to the administrative department which issued the vehicle's type-approval.

Member States may not refuse EC type-approval or national type-approval of a vehicle type, or refuse or prohibit the sale, registration, entry into service or use of a vehicle on grounds relating to the external projections forward of the rear panel of the vehicle's cab, if these vehicles satisfy the requirements of the Directive.
