COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2016/1004

of 22 June 2016

amending Regulation (EC) No 661/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Directive 2007/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 5 September 2007 establishing a framework for the approval of motor vehicles and their trailers, and of systems, components and separate technical units intended for such vehicles (Framework Directive) (1), and in particular Article 39(2) thereof,

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 661/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 13 July 2009 concerning type-approval requirements for the general safety of motor vehicles, their trailers and systems, components and separate technical units intended therefor (2), and in particular Article 14(1)(a) and (f) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 661/2009 lists the UNECE regulations annexed to the ‘Revised 1958 Agreement’ (3) which apply on a compulsory basis. This list should be updated to reflect the application at EU level of new requirements in the respective UNECE regulations.

(2)

In accordance with Article 13(14) of Regulation (EC) No 661/2009, the Appendix to its Annex IV lists the repealed Directives under which type-approvals granted before 1 November 2012 should continue to be valid unless new requirements become applicable. As new requirements become applicable at EU level with the update of Annex IV, it is also necessary to update the Appendix to Annex IV to the regulation.

(3)

Since the new requirements of UNECE Regulations No 107 and 118 will require manufacturers to adapt their vehicles, sufficient time should be provided for the application of those requirements.

(4)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Technical Committee — Motor Vehicles,
