COMMISSION DIRECTIVE 2014/43/EU

of 18 March 2014

amending Annexes I, II and III to Directive 2000/25/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on action to be taken against the emission of gaseous and particulate pollutants by engines intended to power agricultural or forestry tractors

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

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 Article 7 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Directive 2000/25/EC lays down the limit values for emissions of gaseous and particulate pollutants to be applied in successive stages, and the test procedure for internal combustion engines intended to power agricultural or forestry tractors by reference to the provisions of 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 non-road mobile machinery (2).

(2)

Technical progress requires rapid adaptation of the technical requirements set out in the Annexes to Directive 97/68/EC and therefore that Directive has been amended several times. It is therefore necessary to align Directive 2000/25/EC with the provisions of Directive 97/68/EC as amended.

(3)

Annex XII to Directive 97/68/EC has been amended by Commission Directive 2012/46/EU (3) in order to introduce new alternative type-approvals according to technical progress at the UNECE level and so as to ensure international harmonisation with respect to alternative type-approval procedures. Those alternative type-approval provisions should therefore be introduced into Directive 2000/25/EC. In addition, it is necessary to update the references to Regulations No 49 and No 96 of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) to ensure that they correspond to the amendments to Directive 97/68/EC with respect to the recognition of alternative type-approvals for engines intended to power agricultural and forestry tractors.

(4)

Annexes I, II and III to Directive 2000/25/EC should therefore be amended accordingly.

(5)

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:

Article 1

Annexes I, II and III to Directive 2000/25/EC 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 the 1 January 2015 at the latest. They shall communicate to the Commission the relevant text of those provisions forthwith.

When Member States adopt those provisions, they shall contain a reference to this Directive or be accompanied by such a reference on the occasion of their official publication. Member States shall determine how such reference is to be made.

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

Article 3

This Directive shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

Article 4

This Directive is addressed to the Member States.

Done at Brussels, 18 March 2014.

For the Commission

The President
