COMMISSION DIRECTIVE 98/14/EC of 6 February 1998 adapting to technical progress Council 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 (Text with EEA relevance)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 70/156/EEC 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 (1), as last amended by European Parliament and Council Directive 97/27/EC (2), and in particular Article 13(2) thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 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 (3), and in particular Article 3 thereof,

Whereas Directive 92/53/EEC calls upon the Commission to propose on the basis of a report to be drawn up by 31 December 1994, amendments required to improve the type-approval arrangements and to facilitate the entry into service of the vehicles in the Member States;

Whereas according to Article 9 of Directive 70/156/EEC, the equivalence of the international Regulations of the Economic Commission for Europe of the United Nations (UN/ECE) listed in Part II of Annex IV to that Directive with the corresponding separate Directives should be recognized; whereas it is necessary to amend and to keep up-to-date the relevant Annex and the table of equivalence in order to maintain transparency between the Regulations and the Directives;

Whereas according to Article 10 of Directive 70/156/EEC, the Member States granting a type-approval are required to take the necessary measures in accordance with Annex X to verify that adequate arrangements have been made to ensure that production vehicles, systems, components or separate technical units conform to the approved type;

Whereas it is essential that the requirements governing control of the conformity of production to be carried out by the approval authorities should be harmonised; whereas, in order to ensure uniformity of application and interpretation, it is therefore necessary to include specific guidance on the procedures to be followed;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Directive are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee on the Adaptation to Technical Progress,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:

Article 1

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

1. Article 3(1) is replaced by the following:

'1. Applications for vehicle type-approval shall be submitted by the manufacturer to the approval authority of a Member State. An application shall be accompanied by an information folder containing the information required by Annex III, and by the approval certificates for each of the applicable separate Directives as required in Annex IV or XI; also, the information package for system and separate technical unit approvals in respect of each separate Directive shall be made available to the approval authority throughout the period up to the date when the approval is either issued or refused.`;

2. Article 4(1) is amended as follows:

(a) in point (c), 'a relevant separate Directive` is replaced by 'the relevant separate Directive as mentioned in Annex IV or XI`;

(b) in point (d), 'the relevant separate Directive` is replaced by 'the relevant separate Directive as mentioned in Annex IV or XI`;

Where particulars in the information folders referred to in (a), (b), (c), and (d) above specify provisions for special purpose vehicles as denoted in the relevant columns of Annex XI and its Appendices, the type-approval certificate shall also specify such provisions and exemptions.`;

3. Article 5 is replaced by the following:

'Article 5

Amendments to type-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 amendment of a type-approval shall be submitted exclusively to the Member States 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; a consolidated, updated version of the information package accompanied by a detailed description of the change shall also be deemed to meet this requirement.

On any occasion when revised pages or a consolidated, updated version 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 or the date of the consolidated, updated version.

If, in addition, any information on the approval certificate (excluding its attachments) has changed or the requirements of the Directive have changed since the date currently on the approval, the amendment shall be designated as 'extension` and the approval authority of the Member State in question shall issue a revised approval certificate (denoted by an extension number) which 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 tests or checks, it shall inform the manufacturer thereof and issue the documents mentioned in the first, second and third subparagraphs only after the conduct of successful fresh tests or checks.

4. In the case of vehicle type-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; a consolidated, updated version of the information package accompanied by a detailed description of the change shall also be deemed to meet this requirement.

On any occasion when revised pages or a consolidated, updated version 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 or the date of the consolidated, updated version.

In, in addition, either further inspections are required or any information on the approval certificate (excluding its attachments) has changed or 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 amendment shall be designated as 'extension` and the approval authority of the Member State in question shall issue a revised approval certificate (denoted by an extension number) which 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 in the first, second and third subparagraphs only after the conduct of successful fresh inspections. Any revised document shall be sent to all other approval authorities within one month.

5. Where it becomes apparent that a vehicle type-approval is about to become invalid because one or more of the separate Directive approvals referred to in its information package is about to become invalid or because of the introduction of a new separate Directive in Annex IV, Part I, the approval authority of the Member State which granted that approval shall, not less than one month before the vehicle type-approval ceases to be valid, 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.

6. For vehicle categories not affected by a change of requirements in separate Directives or in this Directive, no amendment to the approval shall be required.`;

4. in Article 6(1), the following subparagraph is added:

'The certificate of conformity shall be made in such a way to prevent any forgery. For this purpose, the printing shall be made on paper protected either by coloured graphics or watermarked with the manufacturer's identification mark.`;

(a) point (b) is amended as follows:

(i) in point 1 'quantitative` is deleted;

(ii) point 2 is replaced by the following:

'2. For point 1 to be applied to one or more types of a given category, the manufacturer must submit a request to the competent authority of each Member State concerned by the entry into service of such types of vehicle. The request must specify the technical and/or economic reasons on which it is based.

Within three months these Member States shall decide whether and for which number of units, they accept the vehicle type concerned to be registered within their territory.

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.`;

(b) point (c) is replaced by the following:

'(c) Vehicles, components or separate technical units incorporating technologies or concepts which cannot, owing 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 may grant an approval restricted in validity to its own territory, but shall within one month of so doing, send a copy of the approval certificate and its attachments to the approval authorities of the other Member States and to the Commission. At the same time, it shall send a request to the Commission to be allowed to grant a type-approval in accordance with this Directive. The request shall be accompanied by a file containing the following elements:

- 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, within three months after the date of receipt of the complete file, submit a draft decision to the Committee referred to in Article 13. The Commission shall, in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 13, decide whether or not to allow the Member State to grant an approval in accordance with this Directive.

Only the request to grant an approval and the draft decision will be transmitted to the Member States in their national language(s), but Member States may request all the elements of the file in the original language as a prerequisite to a decision being taken in accordance with the procedure laid down Article 13.

If a decision is taken to approve the request, the Member State may issue a type-approval in accordance with this Directive. In such cases, the decision shall also establish whether to place any restrictions (such as a time period) on its validity. In no case should the validity of the approval be less than 36 months.

When the relevant separate Directive(s) have been adapted to technical progress such that the vehicles, components or separate technical units for which approvals have been granted under the provisions of this subparagraph (c), comply with the amending Directive(s), the Member States shall convert such approvals to normal approvals making any necessary allowances for the time needed, e.g. for manufacturers to change approval markings on components. This will include deletion of any reference to restrictions or exemptions and replace any special approval numbers by normal approval numbers.

If the necessary steps to adapt the separate Directive(s) have not been taken, the validity of approvals granted under the provisions of this point may be extended upon request of the Member State which granted the approval by a further decision taken in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 13.`;

6. in Article 10(2), the second sentence is replaced by the following:

'Verification to ensure that products conform to the approved type shall be limited to the procedures set out in Sections 2 and 3 of Annex X and in those separate Directives that contain specific requirements.`;

7. in Article 13, the following paragraph 5 is added:

'5. Should the Commission adopt amendments to a separate Directive, it shall on the basis of the same amendments adopt appropriate amendments to the relevant Annexes to this Directive.`;

8. the Annexes are amended in accordance with the Annex to this Directive.

Article 2

1. Member States shall bring into force the laws, regulations and administrative provisions necessary to comply with this Directive by 30 September 1998 at the latest. They shall forthwith inform the Commission thereof.

When Member States adopt these provisions, these shall contain a reference to this Directive or shall be accompanied by such reference at the time of their official publication. The procedure for such reference shall be adopted by Member States.

2. Member States shall communicate to the Commission the texts of the main provisions of the national law which they adopt in the field covered by this Directive.

3. Member States shall apply the provisions referred to in paragraph 1 for new vehicle types from 1 October 1998. However, at the request of the manufacturer, the previous model of the certificate of conformity may still be used for 12 months after that date for complete vehicles and 18 months for completed vehicles following multi-stage approval

4. This Directive shall not invalidate any approval granted before its entry into force, nor prevent extension of such approvals under the terms of the Directive under which they were originally granted. However, as from 12 months after the date specified in paragraph 3 for complete vehicles and 18 months for completed vehicles following multi-stage approval, all certificates of conformity issued by the manufacturer shall comply with the model specified in Annex IX to Directive 70/156/EEC as amended by this Directive.

5. As far as vehicle type-approval is concerned, Member States shall apply this Directive only to vehicles of category M1 equipped with an internal combustion engine pending an amendment of the Annexes in order to include vehicles of category M1 powered by engines other than internal combustion engines and other vehicle categories. In the meantime, the provisions of Article 10 of Directive 70/156/EEC, as amended by Directive 87/403/EEC (4), shall be applicable to vehicle type-approval of other vehicle categories.

6. Member States shall apply Article 4(1) of Directive 70/156/EEC as amended by this Directive, only at the request of the manufacturer for special purpose vehicles mentioned in Annex XI until the date(s) specified in an amendment to this Directive, in order to include vehicles of categories other than M1.

In the meantime Member States shall grant national type-approval to, and permit registration, sale and entry into service of such vehicles, or components and separate technical units for such vehicles in accordance with the provisions of Article 10 of Directive 70/156/EEC.

7. Until 31 December 1997 for complete vehicles, until 31 December 1999 for completed vehicles following multi-stage approval and until the dates referred to in paragraph 6 for special purpose vehicles mentioned in Annex XI, Article 7(1) and (2) of Directive 70/156/EEC, as amended by this Directive, shall not apply to vehicles, components on separate technical units belonging to a type for which a national type-approval has been granted before 1 January 1996 for complete vehicles or before 1 January 1998 for completed vehicles following multi-stage approval, nor shall it apply to special purpose vehicles before the dates referred to in paragraph 6 or to a type which a Member State has registered or approved for sale or entry in to service before 1 January 1996 for complete vehicles or 1 January 1998 for completed vehicles following multi-stage approval or the dates referred to in paragraph 6.

8. Approvals forming part of the national type-approval procedure referred to in paragraphs 6 and 7 which have been granted pursuant to the separate Directives shall remain in force after the dates laid down in paragraphs 6 and 7 unless one of the conditions laid down in the fourth subparagraph of Article 5(3) of Directive 70/156/EEC, as amended by this Directive, applies.

9. Pending the harmonization of registration and taxation systems of the Member States in relation to vehicles covered by this Directive, Member States may use national code systems in order to facilitate registration and taxation in their territory. For this purpose, Member States may subdivide the versions shown in Part II of Annex III, provided that the particulars used for the subdivision 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 be supplemented by the national code number(s).

10. Pending an amendment to Directive 70/156/EEC in order to include also vehicles of categories other than M1, for special purpose vehicles mentioned in Annex XI following multi-stage type-approval, Member States may grant vehicle approvals based on approval certificates granted to the manufacturer of the base/incomplete vehicle of such categories where the provisions of Annex XI allow the vehicle to fulfil the requirements applying to the category to which the base/incomplete vehicle belongs.

In addition, for the subsequent registration procedures, the manufacturer of the base/incomplete vehicle of categories other than M1 shall issue a written declaration in accordance with Annex XV.

11. Subject to points (a) and (b) of Article 8(2) of Directive 70/156/EEC, as amended by this Directive, paragraphs 6 and 7 of this Article shall not permit Member States to derogate from any provisions of a separate Directive or of this Directive which lay down requirements based on total harmonization in respect of the type-approval and the initial entry into service of a vehicle, component or separate technical unit.

12. The provisions in point (b) of Article 8(2), with the exception of the words 'under Article 5(5)` and of the second indent of point 1, shall apply to vehicles of category M1 equipped with an internal combustion engine which are registered after the dates specified in paragraph 7 of this Article and are not accompanied by a valid certificate of conformity.

13. The validity of type-approvals previously granted under the provisions of point (c) of Article 8(2) of Directive 70/156/EEC shall be deemed extended for a single period of 12 months from their expiring date.

Article 3

1. Not later than 31 December 2000, on the basis of relevant information communicated by the competent approval authorities, the Commission shall draw up a report on the application of the European type-approval procedures, paying particular, but not exclusive, attention to the impact on small and medium enterprises (SME) involved in multi-stage build, and if appropriate, shall propose the amendments required to improve the harmonisation process.

2. Not later than 31 December 2000 the Commission shall draw up a report on the conditions of application of point 1, Section B of Annex II to Directive 70/156/EEC as amended by this Directive in the Member States and, if appropriate, shall propose a simplification of these requirements.

CONFORMITY OF PRODUCTION PROCEDURES

0. CONFORMITY OF PRODUCTION

Conformity of production to ensure conformity to the approved type as referenced in Article 10 of this Directive including assessment of quality management systems referenced below as initial assessment (1) and verification of the approval subject and product related controls referenced below as product conformity arrangements.

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. That authority shall be satisfied with the initial assessment and the initial product conformity arrangements at 2 below, taking account, as necessary, of one of the arrangements described at 1.2.1 to 1.2.3 below, or a combination of those arrangements in full or in part as appropriate.

1.2.1. The actual initial assessment and/or verification of product conformity arrangements may be carried out by the approval authority granting type-approval or a technical service on behalf of the approval authority.

1.2.1.1. When considering the extent of the initial assessment to be carried out, the approval authority may take account of available information relating to:

- the manufacturer's certification described in 1.2.3 below which has not been qualified or recognised under that paragraph,

- in the case of component or separate technical unit approval, quality system assessments performed in the component or separate technical unit manufacturer's premises by vehicle manufacturer(s), according to one or more of the industry sector specifications satisfying the requirements in harmonised standard EN ISO 9002 - 1994.

(1) Guidance on the planning and conduct of assessment is to be found in harmonised standard ISO 10011, Parts 1, 2 and 3, 1991.1.2.2. The actual initial assessment and/or verification of product conformity arrangements may also be carried out by the approval authority of another Member State or the technical service designated for this purpose by the approval authority. In that case, the approval authority of the other Member State shall prepare a statement of compliance outlining the areas and production facilities it has covered as relevant to the product(s) to be type approved and to the directive according to which these products are to be approved (1). On receiving an application for a compliance statement from the approval authority of a Member State granting type-approval, the approval authority of another Member State shall send forthwith the statement of compliance or advise that it is not in a position to provide such a statement. The statement of compliance should at least include:

>TABLE>

1.2.3. The approval authority must also accept the manufacturer's suitable certification to harmonised standard EN ISO 9002 - 1994 (whose scope covers the locations of production and product(s) to be approved) or an equivalent harmonised standard as satisfying the initial assessment requirements of point 1.2. The manufacturer must provide details of the certification and undertake to inform the approval authority of any revisions to its validity or scope.

"Suitable" means granted by a certification body complying with harmonised standard EN 45012, and either qualified as such by the approval authority of a Member State itself, or accredited as such by a national accreditation organisation of a Member State and recognised by that Member State's approval authority.

The approval authorities of the Member State shall inform each other of the certification bodies they have qualified or recognised as abovementioned, and of any revision to the validity or scope of these bodies.

1.3. For the purpose of the whole vehicle type-approval, the initial assessments carried out for granting of approvals for systems, components and technical units of the vehicle need not be repeated, but shall be completed by an assessment covering the locations and activities relating to the assembly of the whole vehicle not covered by the former assessments.

2. PRODUCT CONFORMITY ARRANGEMENTS

2.1. Every vehicle, system, component or separate technical unit 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 XI.

2.2. The approval authority of a Member State, at the time of 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.

(1) For example, the relevant separate Directive if the product to be approved is a system, component or technical unit, and Directive 70/156/EEC if it is a whole vehicle2.3. The holder of the approval must, in particular:

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

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

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

2.3.4. analyse the results of each type of test or check, 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 XI, are carried out;

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

2.3.7. in the case of whole-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 and especially to the information document laid down in Annex III and the information required for certificates of conformity given in Annex IX to this Directive.

3. CONTINUED VERIFICATION ARRANGEMENTS

3.1. The authority which has granted type-approval may at any time verify the conformity control methods applied in each production facility.

3.1.1. The normal arrangements shall be to monitor the continued effectiveness of the procedures established at 1.2 (initial assessment and product conformity) of this Annex.

3.1.1.1. Surveillance activities carried out by a certification body (qualified or recognised as required by paragraph 1.2.3 of this Annex) must be accepted as satisfying the requirements of 3.1.1 with regard to the procedures established at initial assessment (paragraph 1.2.3).

3.1.1.2. The normal frequency of verifications by the approval authority (other than those at 3.1.1.1) shall be such as to ensure that the relevant controls applied in accordance with Sections 1 and 2 of this Annex are reviewed over a period consistent with the climate of trust established by the approval authority.

3.2. At every review, records of tests or checks and records of production shall be made available to the inspector; in particular, records of those tests or checks documented as required by point 2.2 of this Annex.

3.3. 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.

3.4. 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 3.2 the inspector must select samples to be sent to the technical service with conducted the type-approval tests.

3.5. 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 XI.

3.6. In cases where unsatisfactory results are found during an inspection or a monitoring review, the approval authority must ensure that all necessary steps are taken to restore conformity of production as rapidly as possible.`
