COUNCIL DIRECTIVE No 92/53/EEC of 18 June 1992 amending Directive 70/156/EEC on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to the type-approval of motor vehicles and their trailers

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

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

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission (1),

In cooperation with the European Parliament (2),

Having regard to the opinion of the Economic and Social Committee (3),

Whereas it is important to adopt measures with the aim of progressively establishing the internal market over a period expiring on 31 December 1992; whereas the internal market shall comprise an area without internal frontiers in which the free movement of goods, persons, services and capital is ensured;

Whereas Directive 70/156/EEC (4) laid down the Community type-approval procedure for vehicles, components and separate technical units built in compliance with the technical requirements set out in separate Directives and also the complete list of vehicle systems, components and separate technical units covered by these Directives;

Whereas in the interest of the establishment and operation of the internal market of the Community it appears appropriate to replace the existing type-approval systems of the Member States by the Community type-approval procedure;

Whereas, in order that the said type-approval procedure may achieve its objective in the most effective manner it appears necessary to make its administrative provisions more precise and comprehensive; whereas this implies, inter alia, that these provisions allow for the type-approval of a whole vehicle to be established by compilation of approvals of its constituent systems, components and separate technical units, if the manufacturer so desires, and in the case of vehicles built in several stages involving several manufacturers, by compilation of the approvals of the different stages of completion;

Whereas a vehicle may comply with the provisions of this Directive but nevertheless have certain features which demonstrably present a potential risk for road safety; whereas it is therefore desirable to allow the Member States to refuse to approve such vehicle types as well as to prohibit the sale and entry into service and refuse registration of the said vehicles; whereas for the latter case appropriate conditions are established;

Whereas the mandatory nature of the Community type-approval procedure makes it necessary to allow for exemptions and lay down alternative procedures for vehicles either designed for special purposes or built in small series or incorporating new technologies not yet covered by the provisions of the separate Directives;

Whereas in order to facilitate the access to the markets of countries outside the Community it appears appropriate to allow, under certain conditions, for the acceptance of system, component and separate technical unit approvals based on equivalent international and third-country regulations; whereas equivalence of such regulations is to be established in application of the relevant provisions of the Treaty;

Whereas in order to ensure the necessary transparancy of the Community type-approval procedures it is necessary to lay down provisions according to which the Member States shall notify each other and the Commission of their approval authorities and technical services as well as provisions on the quality criteria with which the latter have to comply;

Whereas since the Annexes to the present Directive are complete only for vehicles of category M1, the Directive applies only to the type-approval of such vehicles; whereas it appears advisable that pending the completion of the Annexes by provisions relating to vehicles of all other categories, Member States should be allowed to continue to operate their national approval systems in relation to such vehicles in accordance with Article 10 of Directive 70/156/EEC;

Whereas, in order to allow for an adequate transition, both from the technical and administrative points of view, from the present optional regime of Community requirements to the mandatory type-approval procedure established by the present Directive, it appears appropriate to leave the manufacturers the option between the application of the procedure of the present Directive and that provided for in Article 10 of Directive 70/156/EEC for a period of three years; whereas approvals granted in application of the latter procedure should remain valid until 31 December 1997;

Whereas the aforementioned transitional provisions are not intended to allow the Member States to derogate from the provisions of separate Directives which are based on total harmonization,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:

Article 1

Directive 70/156/EEC is hereby amended as follows:

1. Articles 1 to 16 are replaced by the following Articles:

Article 4

The type-approval process

1. Each Member State shall grant:

(a) vehicle type-approval to:

- vehicle types which conform to the particulars in the information folder and which meet the technical requirements of all the relevant separate Directives as prescribed in Annex IV,

- special-purpose vehicle types mentioned in Annex XI which conform to the particulars in the information folder and which meet the technical requirements of the separate Directives as denoted in the relevant column of Annex XI.

This process shall be satisfied by the procedures described in Annex V;

(b) multi-stage type-approval to base, incomplete or completed vehicle types which conform to the particulars in the information folder and which meet the technical requirements of the relevant separate Directives as prescribed in Annex IV or XI taking account of the state of completion of the vehicle type.

This process shall be satisfied by the procedures described in Annex XIV;

(c) system type-approval to vehicle types which conform to the particulars in the information folder and which meet the technical requirements of a relevant separate Directive;

(d) component or separate technical unit type-approval to all types of component or separate technical unit which conform to the particulars in the information folder and which meet the technical requirements contained in the relevant separate Directive which makes express provision for so doing.

2. However, if a Member State finds that a vehicle, system, component or separate technical unit which complies with the provisions of paragraph 1 is nevertheless, a serious risk to road safety, it may refuse to grant the type-approval. It shall forthwith inform the other Member States and the Commission thereof, stating the reasons on which its decision is based.

3. Each Member State shall complete all applicable sections of a type-approval certificate (models for which are given in Annex VI to this Directive and in an Annex to each of the separate Directives) for each type of vehicle, system, component or separate technical unit which it approves and, in addition, shall complete the relevant sections of the test results attachment to the vehicle approval certificate (the model for which is given in Annex VIII) and shall compile or verify the contents of the index to the information package. Approval certificates shall be numbered in accordance with the method described in Annex VII. The completed certificate and its attachments shall be delivered to the applicant.

4. Where the component or the separate technical unit to be approved fulfils its function or offers a specific feature only in conjunction with other parts of the vehicle and for this reason compliance with one or more requirements can be verified only when the component or separate technical unit to be approved operates in conjunction with other vehicle parts, whether real or simulated, the scope of the type-approval of the component or the separate technical unit must be restricted accordingly. The type-approval certificate for a component or a separate technical unit shall then include any restrictions on its use and shall indicate any conditions for fitting it. Observance of these restrictions and conditions shall be verified at the time of type-approval of the vehicle.

5. The approval authority of each Member State shall, within one month, send to the approval authorities of the other Member States a copy of the vehicle type-approval certificate (together with its attachments) for each vehicle type which it has approved or refused to approve or withdrawn.

6. The approval authority of each Member State shall send monthly to the approval authorities of the Member States a list (containing the particulars shown in Annex XIII) of the system, component or separate technical unit approvals it has granted, refused to grant or withdrawn during that month; in addition, on receiving an application from the approval authority of another Member State, it shall send forthwith a copy of the system, component or separate technical unit type-approval certificate and/or information package for each type of system, component or separate technical unit which it has approved or refused to approve or withdrawn.

Article 5

Amendments to approvals

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

2. The application for the amendment or extension of a type-approval shall be submitted exclusively to the Member State which granted the original type-approval.

3. In the case of system, component or separate technical unit approval, if particulars appearing in the information package have changed, the approval authority of the Member State in question shall:

- issue revised page(s) of the information package as necessary, marking each revised page to show clearly the nature of the change and the date of re-issue. On any occasion when revised pages are issued the index to the information package (which is attached to the approval certificate) shall also be amended to show the latest dates of revised pages, and

- issue a revised approval certificate (denoted by an extension number) if any information on it (excluding its attachments) has changed or if the requirements of the Directive have changed since the date currently on the approval. The revised certificate shall show clearly the reason for revision and the date of re-issue.

If the approval authorities of the Member State in question find that an amendment to an information package warrants fresh tests or checks it shall inform the manufacturer thereof and issue the documents mentioned above only after the conduct of successful fresh tests or checks.

4. In the case of vehicle approval, if particulars appearing in the information package have changed, the approval authority of the Member State in question shall:

- issue revised page(s) of the information package as necessary, marking each revised page to show clearly the nature of the change and the date of re-issue. On any occasion when revised pages are issued the index to the information package (which is attached to the approval certificate) shall also be amended to show the latest dates of revised pages, and

- issue a revised approval certificate (denoted by an extension number) if either further inspections are required or any information on the approval certificate (excluding its attachments) has changed or if the requirements of any of the separate Directives applicable to the date from which first entry into service is prohibited have changed since the date currently on the vehicle approval. The new certificate shall show clearly the reason for extension and the date of re-issue.

If the approval authority of the Member State in question finds that an amendment to an information package warrants fresh inspections it shall inform the manufacturer thereof and issue the documents mentioned above only after the conduct af successful fresh inspections. Any revised documents shall be sent to all other approval authorities within one month.

5. Where a vehicle type-approval is no longer valid because one or more of the separate Directive approvals referred to in its information package is no longer valid the approval authority of the Member State which granted that approval shall, within one month, communicate that fact to the approval authorities of the other Member States together with an indication of the relevant date or the vehicle identification number of the last vehicle produced in conformity with the old certificate.

Article 6

Certificate of conformity

1. The manufacturer, in his capacity as the holder of a vehicle type-approval, shall issue a certificate of conformity (models for which are given in Annex IX), which shall accompany each vehicle, whether complete or incomplete, manufactured in conformity with the approved vehicle type. In the case of an incomplete or completed vehicle type, the manufacturer shall complete only those items on side 2 of the certificate of conformity which have been added or changed at the current stage of approval and, if applicable, shall attach to this certificate all certificates of conformity delivered at the previous stage(s).

2. However, Member States may, for purposes of vehicle taxation or registration, after giving at least three months' notice to the Commission and the other Member States, request particulars not mentioned in Annex IX to be added to the certificate provided that such particulars are explicitly stated in the information package or can be derived from it by a simple calculation.

Member States may also request that the certificate of conformity contained in Annex IX be completed in such a way as to highlight the data necessary and sufficient for the purposes of taxation and registration by the national competent authorities.

3. The manufacturer, in his capacity as the holder of a type-approval for a component or separate technical unit shall affix to each component or unit manufactured in conformity with the approved type the trade name or mark, the type and/or, if the separate Directive so provides, the type-approval mark or number. However, in the latter case, the manufacturer may choose not to affix the trade name or mark and type.

4. The manufacturer, in his capacity as the holder of a type-approval certificate, which in accordance with the provisions of Article 4 (4) includes restrictions on its use, shall deliver with each component or unit manufactured detailed information on these restrictions and shall indicate any conditions for fitting it.

Article 7

Registration and entry into service

1. Each Member State shall register, permit the sale or entry into service of new vehicles on grounds relating to their construction and functioning if, and only if, they are accompanied by a valid certificate of conformity. In the case of incomplete vehicles, each Member State shall permit the sale of such vehicles but may refuse their permanent registration and entry into service so long as they are not completed.

2. Each Member State shall permit the sale or entry into service of components or separate technical units if, and only if, they comply with the requirement of the relevant separate Directive and the requirements referred to in Article 6 (3) provided that this shall not apply to components and separate technical units intended for use on vehicles which are fully or partially exempt from or not covered by this Directive.

3. If a Member State finds that vehicles, components or separate technical units of a particular type are a serious risk to road safety although they are accompanied by a valid certificate of conformity or are properly marked, then that State may, for a maximum period of six months, refuse to register such vehicles or may prohibit the sale or entry into service in its territory of such vehicles, components or separate technical units. It shall forthwith notify the other Member States and the Commission thereof, stating the reasons on which its decision is based. If the Member State which granted type-approval disputes the risk to road safety 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 8

Exemptions and alternative procedures

1. The requirements of Article 7 (1) do not apply to:

- vehicles intended for use by the armed services, civil defence, fire services and forces responsible for maintaining public order,

- vehicles approved in accordance with paragraph 2.

2. Each Member State may, at the request of the manufacturer, exempt from one or more of the provisions of one or more of the separate Directives:

(a) Vehicles produced in small series

In this case, the number of vehicles of a family of types per year registered, sold or entering service in that Member State shall be limited to not more than the number of units shown in Annex XII. Each year the Member States shall send to the Commission a list of such approvals. The Member State granting such an approval shall send a copy of the approval certificate and its attachments to the approval authorities of the other Member States designated by the manufacturer, stating the nature of exemptions which have been granted. Within three months these Member States shall decide whether, and for which number of units, they accept the type-approval for vehicles to be registered within their territory. For the purposes of approvals granted in accordance with this point (a), the requirements of Articles 3, 4, 5, 6, 10 and 11 shall apply only in so far as they are deemed to be relevant by the approval authority. Where an exemption is granted in accordance with this point (a) the Member State may require a relevant alternative provision;

(b) End-of-series vehicles

1. Within the quantitative limits contained in Annex XII, section B and for a limited period Member States may register and permit the sale or entry into service of new vehicles conforming to a type of vehicle whose type-approval is no longer valid under Article 5 (5).

This provision shall apply only to vehicles which:

- were in the territory of the European Community, and

- were accompanied by a valid certificate of conformity which had been issued

when the type-approval of the vehicle in question was still valid, but which had not been registered or put into service before the said type-approval lost its validity.

This option shall be limited to a period of 12 months for complete vehicles and 18 months for vehicles completed as from the date on which the type-approval lost its validity.

2. For paragraph 1 to be applied to one or more vehicle types of a given category, the manufacturer must submit a request to the competent authorities of the Member State which approved the corresponding type(s) of vehicle before the entry into force of the separate Directives or of the amendments thereto.

The request must specify the technical and/or economic reasons on which it is based.

If the request is accepted by the Member State, the latter must, within a month, send the competent authorities of the other Member States particulars of and reasons for the exemptions granted to the manufacturer together with the information provided for in Article 5 (5).

Each Member State concerned by the entry into service of such types of vehicle shall be responsible for ensuring that the manufacturer complies with the provisions of Annex XII B.

Member States shall each year send the Commission a list of exemptions granted and the reasons therefor.

(c) Vehicles, components or separate technical units incorporating technologies or concepts which cannot, due to their specific nature, comply with one or more of the requirements of one or more of the separate Directives

In this case, the Member State granting such an approval shall, within one month, send a copy of the approval certificate and its attachments to the approval authorities of the other Member States and shall forthwith send to the Commission a report containing:

- the reason why the technologies or concepts in question prevent the vehicle, component or separate technical unit from complying with the requirements of one or more of the relevant separate Directives,

- a description of the areas of safety and environmental protection concerned and the measures taken,

- a description of the tests and their results that demonstrate at least an equivalent level of safety and environmental protection as is provided by the requirements of one or more of the relevant separate Directives.

- proposals for amendments to the relevant separate Directives or new separate Directive(s) as applicable.

The Commission shall, in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 13, decide within three months whether or not to approve the report.

If the Commission approves the report, the Member State may issue a type-approval in accordance with this Directive and the Commission will take the necessary steps to adapt the separate Directive(s) to which the derogation was granted. The validity of such type-approval is restricted to 24 months, but may be extended by the Commission upon request of the Member State which has granted the type-approval.

3. Approval certificates issued in accordance with paragraph 2, the models for which are shown in Annex VI, may not carry the heading 'EEC Vehicle Type-Approval Certificate', except in the case mentioned in 2 (c) where the Commission has approved the report.

Article 9

Acceptance of equivalent approvals

1. The Council may, acting by a qualified majority on a proposal from the Commission, acknowledge the equivalence between the conditions or provisions for type-approval of systems, components and separate technical units established by the present Directive and the procedures established by international regulations or regulations of third countries, in the framework of multilateral or bilateral agreements between the Community and third countries.

2. The equivalence of the international regulations listed in Part II of Annex IV with the corresponding separate Directives shall be recognized. The approval authorities of the Member States shall accept approvals according to those regulations and, where applicable, the pertaining approval marks, in lieu of the corresponding approvals and/or approvals marks according to the equivalent separate Directives. The listed international regulations shall be published in the Official Journal of the European Communities.

Article 10

Conformity of production arrangements

1. A Member State granting type-approval shall take the necessary measures in accordance with Annex X in relation to that approval to verify, if need be in cooperation with the approval authorities of the other Member States, that adequate arrangements have been made to ensure that production vehicles, systems, components or separate technical units, as the case may be, conform to the approved type.

2. A Member State which has granted a type approval shall take the necessary measures in accordance with Annex X in relation to that approval to verify, if need be in cooperation with the approval authorities of the other Member States, that the arrangements referred to in paragraph 1 continue to be adequate and that production vehicles, systems, components or separate technical units, as the case may be, continue to conform to the approved type. Verification to ensure that products conform to the approved type shall be limited to the procedures set out in section 2 of Annex X and in those separate Directives that contain specific requirements.

Article 11

Nonconformity with the approved type

1. There shall be failure to conform to the approved type where deviations from the particulars in the type-approval certificate and/or the information package are found to exist und where these deviations have not been authorized under Article 5 (3) or (4), 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.

2. If a Member State which has granted type-approval finds that vehicles, components or separate technical units accompanied by a certificate of conformity or bearing an approval mark do not conform to the type it has approved, it shall take the necessary measures to ensure that production vehicles, components or separate technical units, as the case may be, again conform to the approved type. The approval authorities of that Member State shall advise those of the other Member States of the measures taken which may, where necessary, extend to withdrawal of type-approval.

3. If a Member State demonstrates that vehicles, components or separate technical units accompanied by a certificate of conformity or bearing an approval mark do not conform to the approved type it may request the Member State which granted the type-approval to verify that vehicles, components or separate technical units, as the case may be, in production conform to the approved type. Such action shall be taken as soon as possible and in any case within six months of the date of the request.

4. In the case of:

- vehicle type-approval where the nonconformity of a vehicle arises exclusively from the nonconformity of a system, component or separate technical unit, or

- multi-stage type-approval where the nonconformity of a completed vehicle arises exclusively from the nonconformity of a system, component or separate technical unit being part of the incomplete vehicle, or of the incomplete vehicle itself,

the vehicle-approval authority shall request the Member State(s) which granted any relevant system, component, separate technical unit or incomplete vehicle type-approval(s) to take the necessary action to ensure that vehicles in production again conform to the approved type. Such action shall be taken as soon as possible and in any case within six months of the date of the request, if necessary in conjunction with the Member State making the request. Where a failure to conform is established, the approval authorities of the Member State which granted the system, component or separate technical unit type-approval or the approval of the incomplete vehicle shall take the measures set out in paragraph 2.

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

6. If the Member State which granted 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 12

Notification of decisions and remedies available

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, shall state in detail the reasons on which they are based. Any decisions 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 13

Adaptation of the Annexes

1. A Committee for Adaptation to Technical Progress 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.

2. All the amendments necessary for adapting:

- the Annexes to this Directive, or

- the provisions of the separate Directives, save as otherwise provided therein,

shall be adopted in accordance with the procedure laid down in paragraph 3. This procedure shall also apply to the introduction of provisions on the type-approval of separate technical units into the separate Directives.

3. The representative of the Commission shall submit to the Committee a draft of the measures to be taken. The Committee shall deliver its opinion on the draft within a time limit which the Chairman may lay down according to the urgency of the matter. The opinion shall be delivered by the majority laid down in Article 148 (2) of the Treaty in the case of decisions which the Council is required to adopt on a proposal from the Commission. The votes of the representatives of the Member States within the Regulation shall be weighted in the manner set out in that Article. The Chairman shall not vote.

The Commission shall adopt the measures envisaged if they are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee.

If the measures envisaged are not in accordance with the opinion of the Committee or if no opinion is delivered, the Commission shall, without delay, submit to the Council a proposal relating to the measures to be taken. The Council shall act by a qualified majority.

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.

4. Should the Council, acting on a proposal from the Commission, adopt a new separate Directive, it shall on the basis of that same proposal adopt appropriate amendments to the relevant Annexes to this Directive.

Article 14

Notification of approval authorities and technical services

1. The Member States shall notify to the Commission and to the other Member States the names and addresses of:

- the type-approval authorities and, if applicable, the disciplines for which the authorities are responsible, and

- the technical services which they have appointed, specifying for which test procedures each of these services has been appointed. The notified services must satisfy the harmonized standards on the operation of testing laboratories (EN 45001) subject to the following provisos:

(i) a manufacturer cannot be accredited as a technical service except where the separate Directives make express provision;

(ii) for the purposes of this Directive it is not considered exceptional for a technical service to use outside equipment, subject to the agreement of the approval authority.

Vehicles used for the carriage of goods and having a maximum mass exceeding 12 tonnes.

In the case of a towing vehicle designed to be coupled to a semi-trailer or centre-axle trailer, the mass to be considered for classifying the vehicle is the mass of the tractor vehicle in running order, increased by the mass corresponding to the maximum static vertical load transferred to the tractor vehicle by the semi-trailer or centre-axle trailer and, where applicable, by the maximum mass of the tractor vehicles's own load.

3. Category O:

Trailers (including semi-trailers).

Category O1:

Trailers with a maximum mass not exceeding 0,75 tonnes.

Category O2:

Trailers with a maximum mass exceeding 0,75 tonnes but not exceeding 3,5 tonnes.

Category O3:

Trailers with a maximum mass exceeding 3,5 tonnes but not exceeding 10 tonnes.

Category O4:

Trailers with a maximum mass exceeding 10 tonnes.

In the case of a semi-trailer or centre-axle trailer, the maximum mass to be considered for classifying the trailer corresponds to the static vertical load transmitted to the ground by the axle or axles of the semi-trailer or centre-axle trailer when coupled to the towing vehicle and carrying its maximum load.

4. Vehicles in categories M and N, above, considered to be off-road vehicles under the load and checking conditions set out in item 4.4 and pursuant to the definitions and sketches of item 4.5.

4.1. Vehicles in category N1 with a maximum mass not exceeding two tonnes and motor vehicles in category M1 are considered to be off-road vehicles if they have:

- at least one front axle and at least one rear axle designed to be driven simultaneously including vehicles where the drive to one axle can be disengaged,

- at least one differential locking mechanism or at least one mechanism having a similar effect and if they can climb a 30 % gradient calculated for a solo vehicle.

In addition, they must satisfy at least five of the following six requirements:

- the approach angle must be at least 25 degrees,

- the departure angle must be at least 20 degrees,

- the ramp angle must be at least 20 degrees,

- the ground clearance under the front axle must be at least 180 mm,

- the ground clearance under the rear axle must be at least 180 mm,

- the ground clearance between the axles must be at least 200 mm.

4.2. Vehicles in category N1 with a maximum mass exceeding two tonnes or in category N2, M2 or M3 with a maximum mass not exceeding 12 tonnes are considered to be off-road vehicles either if all their wheels are designed to be driven simultaneously, including vehicles where the drive to one axle can be disengaged, or if the following three requirements are satisfied:

- at least one front axle and at least one rear axle are designed to be driven simultaneously, including vehicles where the drive to one axle can be disengaged,

- there is at least one differential locking mechanism or at least one mechanism having a similar effect,

- they can climb a 25 % gradient calculated for a solo vehicle.

4.3. Vehicles in category M3 with a maximum mass exceeding 12 tonnes or in category N3 are to be considered to be off-road vehicles either if the wheels are designed to be driven simultaneously, including vehicles where the drive to one axle can be disengaged, or if the following requirements are satisfied:

- at least half the wheels are driven,

- there is at least one differential locking mechanism or at least one mechanism having a similar effect,

- they can climb a 25 % gradient calculated for a solo vehicle,

- at least four of the following six requirements are satisfied:

- the approach angle must be at least 25 degrees,

- the departure angle must be at least 25 degrees,

- the ramp angle must be at least 25 degrees,

- the ground clearance under the front axle must be at least 250 mm,

- the ground clearance between the axles must be at least 300 mm,

- the ground clearance under the rear axle must be least 250 mm.

4.4. Load and checking conditions.

4.4.1. Vehicles in category N1 with a maximum mass not exceeding two tonnes and vehicles in category M1 must be in running order, namely with coolant fluid, lubricants, fuel, tools, spare-wheel and a driver considered to weigh a standard 75 kilograms.

4.4.2. Motor vehicles other than those referred to in 4.4.1 must be loaded to the technically permissible maximum mass stated by the manufacturer.

4.4.3. The ability to climb the required gradients (25 % and 30 %) is verified by simple calculation. In exceptional cases, however, the technical services may ask for a vehicle of the type concerned to be submitted to it for an actual test.

4.4.4. When measuring approach and departure angles and ramp angles, no account is taken of underrun protective devices.

4.5. Definitions and sketches of approach and departure angles, ramp angle and ground clearance.

4.5.1. 'Approach angle' means the maximum angle between the ground plane and planes tangential to the tyres of the front wheels, under a static load, such that no point of the vehicle ahead of the front axle is situated below these planes and no rigid part of the vehicle, with the exception of any steps, is situated below these planes.

4.5.2. 'Departure angle' means the maximum angle between the ground plane and planes tangential to the tyres of the rear wheels, under a static load, such that no point of the vehicle behind the rearmost axle is situated below these planes and no rigid part of the vehicle is situated below these planes.

4.5.3. 'Ramp angle' means the minimum acute angle between two planes, perpendicular to the median longitudinal plane of the vehicle, tangential to the tyres of the front wheels and to the tyres of the rear wheels respectively, under a static load, the intersection of which touches the rigid underside of the vehicle apart from the wheels. This angle defines the steepest ramp over which the vehicle can pass.

4.5.4. 'Ground clearance between the axles' means the shortest distance between the ground plane and the lowest fixed point of the vehicle.

Multi-axled bogies are considered to be a single axle.

4.5.5. 'Ground clearance beneath one axle' means the distance beneath the highest point of the arc of a circle passing through the centre of the tyre footprint of the wheels on one axle (the inner wheels in the case of twin tyres) and touching the lowest fixed point of the vehicle between the wheels.

No rigid part of the vehicle may project into the shaded area of the diagram. Where appropriate, the ground clearance of several axles is indicated in accordance with their arrangement, for example 280/250/250.

B. DEFINITION OF VEHICLE TYPE

1. For the purposes of category M1:

A 'type' shall consist of vehicles which do not differ in at least the following essential respects:

- the manufacturer,

- the manufacturer's type designation,

- essential aspects of construction and design:

- chassis/floor pan (obvious and fundamental differences),

- power plant (internal combustion/electric/hybrid).

'Variant' of a type means vehicles within a type which do not differ in at least the following essential respects:

- body style (e.g. saloon, hatchback, coupe, cabriolet, wagon, etc.),

- power plant:

- working principle (as in item 3.2.1.1 of Annex III),

- number and arrangement of cylinders,

- power differences of more than 30 % (the highest is more than 1,3 times the lowest),

- capacity differences of more than 20 % (the highest is more than 1,2 times the lowest),

- powered axles (number, position, interconnection),

- steered axles (number and position).

'Version' of a variant means vehicles which consist of permitted combinations of items shown in the information package in accordance with Annex III and Annex VIII.

Full identification of the vehicle just from the designations of type, variant and version must be consistent with a single accurate definition of all the technical characteristics required for the vehicle to be put into service, and particularly the parameter(s) necessary for determining the taxes applicable to the vehicle. These parameters will be established in the relevant Annexes which cover the information to be provided for type-approval purposes.

ANNEX X

CONFORMITY OF PRODUCTION PROCEDURES 1. INITIAL ASSESSMENT

1.1. The approval authority of a Member State must verify, before granting type-approval, the existence of satisfactory arrangements and procedures for ensuring effective control so that components, systems, separate technical units or vehicles when in production conform to the approved type.

1.2. The requirement in point 1.1 must be verified to the satisfaction of the authority granting type-approval but may also be verified, on behalf of the authority granting type-approval, by the approval authority of another Member State. In that case, the latter approval authority prepares a statement of compliance outlining the areas and production facilities it has covered as relevant to the product(s) to be type approved.

1.3. The approval authority must also accept the manufacturer's registration to harmonized standard EN 29002 (whose scope covers the product(s) to be approved) or an equivalent accreditation standard as satisfying the requirements of point 1.1. The manufacturer must provide details of the registration and undertake to inform the approval authority of any revisions to its validity or scope.

1.4. On receiving an application from the authority of another Member State, the approval authority sends forthwith the statement of compliance mentioned in the last sentence of point 1.2 or advises that it is not in a position to provide such a statement.

2. CONFORMITY OF PRODUCTION

2.1. Every vehicle, system, component or separate technical unit(s) approved pursuant to this Directive or a separate Directive must be so manufactured as to conform to the type approved by meeting the requirements of this Directive or a separate Directive contained in the complete list set out in Annex IV or Annex XI.

2.2. The approval authority of a Member State, granting a type-approval must verify the existence of adequate arrangements and documented control plans, to be agreed with the manufacturer for each approval, to carry out at specified intervals those tests or associated checks necessary to verify continued conformity with the approved type including specifically, where applicable, tests specified in the separate Directives.

2.3. The holder of the approval must, in particular:

2.3.1. ensure the existence of procedures for effective control of the conformity of products (vehicles, systems, components or separate technical units) to the type-approval;

2.3.2. have access to the testing equipment necessary for checking the conformity to each approved type;

2.3.3. ensure that test results data are recorded and that annexed documents remain available for a period to be determined in agreement with the approval authority. This period must not exceed 10 years;

2.3.4. analyse the results of each type of test, in order to verify and ensure the stability of the product characteristics, making allowance for variation of an industrial production;

2.3.5. ensure that for each type of product, at least the checks prescribed in this Directive and the tests prescribed in the applicable separate Directives contained in the complete list set out in Annex IV or Annex XI, are carried out;

2.3.6. ensure that any set of samples or test pieces, giving evidence of nonconformity in the type of test in question gives rise to a further sampling and test. All the necessary steps shall be taken to restore conformity of the corresponding production;

2.3.7. in the case of vehicle approval, the checks referred to in point 2.3.5 are restricted to those verifying the correct build specification in relation to the approval certification.

2.4. The authority which has granted type-approval may at any time verify the conformity control methods applied in each production facility. The normal frequency of these verifications must be consistent with the arrangements (if any) accepted under point 1.2 or 1.3 of this Annex and be such as to ensure that the relevant controls are reviewed over a period consistent with the climate of trust established by the approval authority.

2.4.1. At every inspection, the test records and production records shall be made available to the visiting inspector.

2.4.2. Where the nature of the test is appropriate, the inspector may select samples at random to be tested in the manufacturer's laboratory (or by the technical service where the separate Directive so provides). The minimum number of samples may be determined according to the results of the manufacturer's own verification.

2.4.3. Where the level of control appears unsatisfactory, or when it seems necessary to verify the validity of the tests carried out in application of point 2.4.2, the inspector must select samples to be sent to the technical service which conducted the type-approval tests.

2.4.4. The approval authority may carry out any check or test prescribed in this Directive or in the applicable separate Directives contained in the complete list set out in Annex IV or Annex XI.

ANNEX XIV

PROCEDURES TO BE FOLLOWED DURING MULTI-STAGE TYPE-APPROVAL (see Article 4) 1. GENERAL

1.1. The satisfactory operation of the process of multi-stage type-approval requires joint action by all the manufacturers concerned. To this end approval authorities must ensure, before granting second or subsequent stage approval, that suitable arrangements exist between the relevant manufacturers for the supply and interchange of documents and information such that the completed vehicle type meets the technical requirements of all the relevant separate Directives as prescribed in Annex IV or Annex XI. Such information must include details of relevant system, component and separate technical unit approvals and of vehicle parts which form part of the incomplete vehicle but are not yet approved.

1.2. Type-approvals in accordance with this Annex are granted on the basis of the current state of completion of the vehicle type and must incorporate all approvals granted at earlier stages.

1.3. Each manufacturer in a multi-stage approval process is responsible for the approval and conformity of production of all systems, components or separate technical units manufactured by him or added by him to the previously built stage. He is not responsible for subjects which have been approved in an earlier stage except in those cases where he modifies relevant parts to an extent that the previously granted approval becomes invalid.

2. PROCEDURES

In the case of an application made in accordance with Article 3 (3), the approval authority must:

(a) verify that all relevant separate Directive approvals are applicable to the appropriate standard in the separate Directive;

(b) ensure that all the relevant data, taking account of the state of completion of the vehicle, is included in the information folder;

(c) by reference to the documentation make sure that the vehicle specification(s) and data contained in Part I of the vehicle information folder are included in the data in the information packages and/or the approval certificates of the relevant separate Directive approvals; and in the case of a completed vehicle, where an item number in Part I of the information folder is not included in the information package of any of the separate Directives, confirm that the relevant part of characteristic conforms to the particulars in the information folder;

(d) on a selected sample of vehicles from the type to be approved carry out or arrange to be carried out inspections of vehicle parts and systems to verify that the vehicle(s) is/are built in accordance with the relevant data contained in the authenticated information package in respect of all relevant separate Directive approvals;

(e) carry out or arrange to be carried out relevant installation checks in respect of separate technical units where applicable.

3. The number of vehicles to be inspected for the purposes of paragraph 2 (d) must be sufficient to permit the proper control of the various combinations to be approved according to the state of completion of the vehicle and the following criteria:

- engine,

- gearbox,

- powered axles (number, position, interconnection),

- steered axles (number and position),

- body styles,

- number of doors,

- hand of drive,

- number of seats,

- level of equipment.

4. IDENTIFICATION OF THE VEHICLE

At the second and subsequent stages, in addition to the statutory plate prescribed by Directive 76/114/EEC (as last amended), each manufacturer must affix to the vehicle an additional plate the model of which is shown in the appendix to this Annex. This plate must be firmly attached, in a conspicuous and readily accessible position on a part not subject to replacement in use. It must show clearly and indelibly the following information in the order listed:

- name of the manufacturer,

- EEC type-approval number,

- the stage of approval,

- vehicle serial number,

- maximum permissible laden mass of the vehicle (a),

- maximum permissible laden mass of the combination (where the vehicle is permitted to tow a trailer) (a),

- maximum permissible mass on each axle, listed in order from front to rear (a),

- in the case of a semi-trailer, the maximum permitted mass on the fifth wheel king pin (a).
