COMMISSION DIRECTIVE 2005/13/EC

of 21 February 2005

amending Directive 2000/25/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council concerning the emission of gaseous and particulate pollutants by engines intended to power agricultural or forestry tractors, and amending Annex I to Directive 2003/37/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council concerning the type-approval of agricultural or forestry tractors

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Directive 2000/25/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 May 2000 on action to be taken against the emission of gaseous and particulate pollutants by engines intended to power agricultural or forestry tractors and amending Council Directive 74/150/EEC (1), and in particular Articles 6 and 7 thereof,

Having regard to Directive 2003/37/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 May 2003 on type-approval of agricultural or forestry tractors, their trailers and interchangeable towed machinery, together with their systems, components and separate technical units and repealing Council Directive 74/150/EEC (2), and in particular Article 19(1)(a) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Directive 97/68/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 December 1997 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to measures against the emission of gaseous and particulate pollutants from internal combustion engines to be installed in no-road mobile machinery (3) as amended by Directive 2004/26/EC sets out more stringent emission requirements for engines installed in non-road mobile machinery, and introduces three new stages for emission limits.

(2)

Directive 2000/25/EC, which is one of the separate Directives in the framework of the type approval procedure under Council Directive 74/150/EEC of 4 March 1974 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to the type-approval of wheeled agricultural or forestry tractors (4), should be aligned with Directive 97/68/EC as amended by Directive 2004/26/EC, in particular as regards the introduction of the flexibility scheme provided for in the latter.

(3)

Annexes I and II to Directive 2000/25/EC need to be adapted, notably to take account of the introduction by Directive 97/68/EC as amended by Directive 2004/26/EC of new emission limits for combined emission of hydrocarbons and oxides of nitrogen. Other changes should be introduced in those annexes to ensure consistency between the provisions on information documents laid down in Directives 2000/25/EC, 97/68/EC and 2003/37/EC. In addition, Annex III to Directive 2000/25/EC needs to be adapted in order to add the alternative type-approvals to be recognised for the new stages III A, III B and IV.

(4)

It is also necessary to adapt Annex I to Directive 2003/37/EC in order to ensure consistency between the provisions on information documents laid down in Directives 2000/25/EC, 97/68/EC and 2003/37/EC. In particular, discrepancies in terminology should be eliminated in the interests of clarity.

(5)

Directives 2000/25/EC and 2003/37/EC should therefore be amended accordingly.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Directive are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee established by Article 20(1) of Directive 2003/37/EC,

‘ANNEX IV

PROVISIONS FOR TRACTORS AND ENGINES PLACED ON THE MARKET UNDER THE FLEXIBILITY SCHEME LAID DOWN IN ARTICLE 3A

1.   ACTIONS BY THE ENGINE AND THE TRACTOR MANUFACTURERS

1.1.   A tractor manufacturer, who wishes to make use of the flexibility scheme, shall request permission from his approval authority to place or to source from his engine suppliers, in the period between two emissions stages, the quantities of engines described in section 1.2 and 1.3 that do not comply with the current emission limit values, but are approved to the nearest previous stage of emission limits.

1.2.   The number of engines placed on the market under a flexibility scheme shall, in each engine category, not exceed 20 % of the tractor manufacturer’s annual sales of tractors with engines in that engine category (calculated as the average of the latest 5 years sales on the EU market). In the case that a tractor manufacturer has marketed tractors in the EU for a period of less than five years the average will be calculated based on the period for which the tractor manufacturer has marketed tractors in the EU.

1.3.   As an alternative option to section 1.2, the tractor manufacturer may seek permission for his engine suppliers to place on the market a fixed number of engines under the flexibility scheme. The number of engines in each engine category shall not exceed the following values:

Engine Category

Number of Engines

19-37 kW

200

37-75 kW

150

75-130 kW

100

130-560 kW

50

1.4.   The tractor manufacturer shall include in his application to an approval authority the following information:

(a)

a sample of the labels to be affixed to each tractor in which an engine placed on the market under the flexibility scheme will be installed. The labels shall bear the following text: “TRACTOR NO … (sequence of tractors) OF … (total number of tractors in respective power band) WITH ENGINE NO. … WITH TYPE APPROVAL (Directive 2000/25/EC) NO …”; and

(b)

a sample of the supplementary label to be affixed on the engine bearing the text referred to in section 2.2 of this Annex.

1.5.   The tractor manufacturer shall provide the approval authority with any information connected with the implementation of the flexibility scheme that the approval authority may request necessary to make a decision.

1.6.   The tractor manufacturer shall file a report every six months to the approval authorities of each Member State, where the tractor or engine is put on the market, on the implementation of the flexibility schemes he is using. The report shall include cumulative data on the number of engines and tractors placed on the market under the flexibility scheme, engine and tractor serial numbers, and the Member States where the tractor has been entered into service. This procedure shall be continued as long as a flexibility scheme is still in progress.

2.   ACTIONS BY THE ENGINE MANUFACTURER

2.1.   An engine manufacturer may supply engines to a tractor manufacturer under a flexibility scheme covered by an approval in accordance with section 1 of this annex.

2.2.   The engine manufacturer must put a label on those engines with the following text: “Engine placed on the market under the flexibility scheme”.

3.   ACTIONS BY THE APPROVAL AUTHORITY

The approval authority shall evaluate the content of the flexibility scheme request and the enclosed documents. As a consequence it will inform the tractor manufacturer of its decision as to whether or not to allow use of the flexibility scheme.’


ANNEX III

In Annex I to Directive 2003/37/EC, Model A, section 3 ‘Engine’, is replaced by the following:
