COMMISSION DIRECTIVE 2014/44/EU

of 18 March 2014

amending Annexes I, II and III to Directive 2003/37/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on type-approval of agricultural or forestry tractors, their trailers and interchangeable towed machinery, together with their systems, components and separate technical units

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

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 Directive 74/150/EEC (1), and in particular point (a) of Article 19(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Directive 2003/37/EC sets up the type-approval system of agricultural and forestry tractors, bringing it in line with the rules on type-approval of motor vehicles.

(2)

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 (2) is one of the separate directives in the framework of the type-approval system set up by Directive 2003/37/EC. Directive 2000/25/EC has been amended in order to include several modifications to 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 (3) concerning adaptation to technical progress, introduction of new emission stages, introduction of alternative type approval procedures and implementation of flexibility schemes.

(3)

In order to take account of those amendments to Directive 2000/25/EC, the corresponding administrative provisions of Directive 2003/37/EC should be updated.

(4)

Annexes I, II and III to Directive 2003/37/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(1) of Directive 2003/37/EC,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:

Article 1

Annexes I, II and III to Directive 2003/37/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 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.
