COUNCIL DIRECTIVE of 6 February 1970 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to the type-approval of motor vehicles and their trailers (70/156/EEC)

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, and in particular Article 100 thereof;

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission;

Having regard to the Opinion of the European Parliament 1;

Having regard to the Opinion of the Economic and Social Committee 2;

Whereas in each Member State motor vehicles intended for the carriage of goods or passengers must comply with certain mandatory technical requirements ; whereas such requirements differ from one Member State to another and consequently hinder trade within the European Economic Community;

Whereas such hindrances to the establishment and proper functioning of the common market can be reduced and even eliminated if all Member States adopt the same requirements, either in addition to or in place of their existing laws;

Whereas it is the established practice of the Member States to check that vehicles comply with the relevant technical requirements before they are placed on the market ; whereas this check is carried out on vehicle types;

Whereas the harmonised technical requirements applicable to individual parts and characteristics of a vehicle should be specified in separate Directives;

Whereas at Community level it is necessary to introduce a Community type-approval procedure for each vehicle type in order that compliance with the above requirements can be checked and that each Member State may recognise checks carried out by other Member States;

Whereas that procedure must enable each Member State to ascertain whether a vehicle type has been submitted to the checks laid down by separate Directive and listed in a type approval certificate ; whereas that procedure must enable manufacturers to complete a certificate of conformity for all vehicles which conform to an approved type ; whereas a vehicle accompanied by such a certificate must be considered by all Member States as conforming to their own laws ; whereas each Member State should inform the other Member States of its findings by sending a copy of the type approval certificate completed for each vehicle type which has been approved;

Whereas, as a transitional measure, it must be possible to grant type approval on the basis of Community requirements as and when separate Directives relating to the various vehicle parts and characteristics enter into force, national requirements remaining applicable in respect of parts and characteristics still not covered by such Directives;

Whereas, without prejudice to Articles 169 and 170 of the Treaty, it is advisable, within the framework of co-operation between the competent authorities of the Member States, to lay down provisions to help resolve disputes of a technical nature regarding the conformity of production models to an approved type;

Whereas a vehicle may conform to an approved type but nevertheless have certain features which are potential road safety hazards ; whereas it is therefore advisable to prescribe an appropriate procedure to preclude such hazards;

Whereas technical progress requires prompt adjustment of the technical requirements specified in 1OJ No C 160, 18.12.1969, p. 7. 2OJ No C 48, 16.4.1969, p. 14.

the separate Directives ; whereas, in order to facilitate implementation of the measures required for this purpose, a procedure should be prescribed for establishing close co-operation between the Member States and the Commission within the Committee on the Adjustment to Technical Progress of the Directives on the Removal of Technical Barriers to Trade in the Motor Vehicle Sector;

HAS ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:

CHAPTER I DEFINITIONS

Article 1

For the purposes of this Directive, "vehicle" means any motor vehicle intended for use on the road, with or without bodywork, having at least four wheels and a maximum design speed exceeding 25 km/h, and its trailers, with the exception of vehicles which run on rails and of agricultural tractors and machinery.

Article 2

For the purposes of this Directive: (a) "national type approval" means the administrative procedure known as: - "agréation par type" and "aanneming" in Belgian law;

- "allgemeine Betriebserlaubnis" in German law;

- "réception par type" in French law;

- "omologazione" or "approvazione del tipo" in Italian law;

- "agréation" in Luxembourg law;

- "typegoedkeuring" in Netherlands law;

(b) "EEC type-approval" means the procedure whereby a Member State certifies that a vehicle type satisfies the technical requirements of the separate Directives and the checks listed in the EEC type-approval certificate, the model of which is given in Annex II.

CHAPTER II EEC vehicle type-approval

Article 3

Application for EEC type-approval shall be submitted by the manufacturer or his authorised representative to a Member State. An application shall be accompanied by an information document, the model of which is given in Annex I, and by the documents referred to therein. No application in respect of any one type of vehicle may be submitted to more than one Member State.

Article 4

1. A Member State shall approve all vehicle types which satisfy the following conditions: (a) the vehicle type must conform to the particulars in the information document;

(b) the vehicle type must satisfy the checks listed in the model, referred to in Article 2 (b), of the type approval certificate.

2. The Member State which has granted type approval shall take the necessary measures to verify, in so far as is necessary and if need be in co-operation with the competent authorities of the other Member States, that production models conform to the approved prototype. Such verification shall be limited to spot checks.

Each Member State shall complete all the sections of a type approval certificate for each vehicle type which it approves.

Article 5

1. The competent authorities of each Member State shall send within one month to the competent authorities of the other Member States a copy of the information document and approval certificate for each vehicle type which they approve or refuse to approve.

2. The manufacturer or his authorised representative in the country of registration shall complete a certificate of conformity, the model of which is given in Annex III, for each vehicle manufactured in conformity with the approved prototype.

3. Member States may, however, for purposes of taxation of a vehicle or completion of its registration documents, ask for particulars not mentioned in Annex III to be given on the certificate of conformity, provided that such particulars are explicitly stated on the information document or can be derived therefrom by a straightforward calculation.

Article 6

1. The Member State which has granted EEC type-approval must take the necessary measures to ensure that it is informed of any cessation of production and of any change in particulars appearing in the information document.

2. If the State in question considers that such a change does not require an amendment to the existing type-approval certificate, or completion of a fresh type-approval certificate, the competent authorities of that State shall inform the manufacturer thereof and shall send the competent authorities of the other Member States, in periodic batches, copies of amendments to information documents which have already been distributed.

3. If the State in question finds that an amendment to an information document warrants fresh checks or fresh tests and that it is accordingly necessary to amend the existing type-approval certificate or complete a fresh type-approval certificate, the competent authorities of that State shall inform the manufacturer thereof and shall, within one month of such fresh documents being completed, send them to the competent authorities of the other Member States.

4. Where a type-approval certificate is amended or replaced, or is no longer valid because the type to which it relates has been taken out of production, the competent authorities of the Member State which granted that type approval shall, within one month, communicate to the competent authorities of the other Member States the serial numbers of the last vehicle produced in conformity with the old certificate and, where applicable, the serial numbers of the first vehicle produced in conformity with the fresh or amended certificate.

Article 7

1. No Member State may refuse to register or prohibit the sale, entry into service or use of any new vehicle on grounds relating to its construction or functioning, where that vehicle is accompanied by a certificate of conformity.

2. Nevertheless, this certificate shall not prevent a Member State from taking such measures in respect of vehicles which do not conform to the approved prototype.

There shall be failure to conform to the approved prototype where deviations from the particulars in the information document are found to exist and where these deviations have not been authorised under Article 6 (2) or (3) by the Member State which granted the type-approval. A vehicle shall not be considered to deviate from the approved type where tolerances are permitted by separate Directives and these tolerances are respected.

Article 8

1. If the Member State which has granted EEC type-approval finds that a number of vehicles accompanied by a certificate of conformity do not conform to the type which it has approved, it shall take the necessary measures to ensure that production models conform to the approved type. The competent authorities of that State shall advise those of the other Member States of the measures taken, which may, where necessary, extend to withdrawal of EEC type-approval.

The said authorities shall take like measures if they are informed by the competent authorities of another Member State of such failure to conform.

2. The competent authorities of the Member States shall inform each other within one month of any withdrawal of EEC type-approval, and of the reasons for such measure.

3. If the Member State which has granted EEC type-approval disputes the failure to conform notified to it, the Member States concerned shall endeavour to settle the dispute.

The Commission shall be kept informed and shall, where necessary, hold appropriate consultations for the purpose of reaching a settlement.

Article 9

If a Member State finds that vehicles of a particular type are a hazard to road safety although they are accompanied by a properly issued certificate of conformity, then that State may, for a maximum period of six months, refuse to register such vehicles or prohibit their sale, entry into service or use in its territory. It shall forthwith inform the other Member States and Commission thereof, stating the reasons on which its decision is based.

CHAPTER III Transitional provisions

Article 10

1. Once this Directive has entered into force, and as the separate Directives necessary for the granting of EEC type-approval become applicable: - national type-approval shall be based on the harmonised technical requirements instead of on the corresponding national requirements, if the applicant so requests;

- on application by a manufacturer or his authorised representative and on submission of the information document referred to in Article 3, the Member State concerned shall complete the sections of the type approval certificate referred to in Article 2 (b). A copy of this certificate shall be issued to the applicant. Other Member States to which application is made for national type-approval for the same type of vehicle shall accept this copy as proof that the requisite checks have been carried out.

2. The provisions of paragraph 1 of this Article shall be revoked once all the requirements necessary for the granting of EEC type-approval are applicable.

CHAPTER IV General and final provisions

Article 11

Any changes which are necessary in order to adapt: - Annexes I, II and III of this Directive, or

- the provisions contained in the separate Directives referred to in Annex II and specified in each of those Directives,

to take account of technical progress shall be adopted in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 13.

Article 12

1. A Committee on the Adaptation to Technical Progress of the Directives on the Removal of Technical Barriers to Trade in the Motor Vehicle Sector (hereinafter called the "Committee") is hereby set up ; it shall consist of representatives of the Member States with a representative of the Commission as Chairman.

The Committee shall deliver its Opinion on the draft within a time limit set by the Chairman having regard to the urgency of the matter. Opinions shall be adopted by a majority of twelve votes, the votes of Member States being weighted as provided in Article 148 (2) of the Treaty. The Chairman shall not vote.

3. (a) The Commission shall adopt the measures envisaged where they are in accordance with the Opinion of the Committee.

(b) Where the measures envisaged are not in accordance with the Opinion of the Committee, or if no Opinion is adopted, the Commission shall without delay propose to the Council the measures to be adopted. The Council shall act by a qualified majority.

(c) If, within three months of the proposal being submitted to it, the Council has not acted, the proposed measures shall be adopted by the Commission.

Article 14

All decisions taken pursuant to the provisions adopted in implementation of this Directive and refusing or withdrawing type approval, or refusing registration or prohibiting sale or use, shall state in detail the reasons on which they are based. A decision shall be notified to the party concerned, who shall at the same time be informed of the remedies available to him under the laws in force in the Member States and of the time limits allowed for the exercise of such remedies.

Article 15

1. Member States shall put into force provisions containing the requirements needed in order to comply with this Directive within eighteen months of its notification and shall forthwith inform the Commission thereof.
