5.   SPECIFICATIONS AND TESTS

Small volume manufacturers

As an alternative to the requirements of this paragraph, vehicle manufacturers whose world-wide annual production is less than 10 000 units may obtain approval on the basis of the corresponding technical requirements specified in the table below.

Legislative Act

Requirements

The California Code of Regulations, Title 13, paragraphs 1961(a) and 1961(b)(1)(C)(1) applicable to 2001 and later model year vehicles, 1968.1, 1968.2, 1968.5, 1976 and 1975, published by Barclay's Publishing.

Type approval shall be granted under the California Code of Regulations applicable to the most recent model year of light duty vehicle.

The emissions tests for roadworthiness purposes set out in Annex 5 to this Regulation and the requirements for access to vehicle OBD information set out in paragraph 5 of Annex 11 to this Regulation shall still be required to obtain type approval with regard to emissions under this paragraph.

The Type Approval Authority shall inform the other Type Approval Authorities of Contracting Parties of the circumstances of each type approval granted under this paragraph.

5.1.   General

5.1.1.   The components liable to affect the emission of pollutants shall be so designed, constructed and assembled as to enable the vehicle, in normal use, despite the vibration to which they may be subjected, to comply with the provisions of this Regulation.

5.1.2.   The technical measures taken by the manufacturer shall be such as to ensure that in conformity with the provisions of this Regulation, exhaust gas and evaporative emissions are effectively limited throughout the normal life of the vehicle and under normal conditions of use. This will include the security of those hoses and their joints and connections, used within the emission control systems, which shall be so constructed as to conform with the original design intent. For exhaust emissions, these provisions are deemed to be met if the provisions of paragraph 5.3.1 of this Regulation and paragraph 8.2 of this Regulation are complied with. For evaporative emissions, these conditions are deemed to be met if the provisions of paragraph 5.3.4 of this Regulation and paragraph 8.4 of this Regulation are complied with.

5.1.2.1.   The use of a defeat device is prohibited.

5.1.3.   Inlet orifices of petrol tanks

5.1.3.1.   Subject to paragraph 5.1.3.2 of this Regulation, the inlet orifice of the petrol or ethanol tank shall be so designed as to prevent the tank from being filled from a fuel pump delivery nozzle which has an external diameter of 23,6 mm or greater.

5.1.3.2.   Paragraph 5.1.3.1 of this Regulation shall not apply to a vehicle in respect of which both of the following conditions are satisfied, i.e.:

5.1.3.2.1.

The vehicle is so designed and constructed that no device designed to control the emission of gaseous pollutants shall be adversely affected by leaded petrol; and

5.1.3.2.2.

The vehicle is conspicuously, legibly and indelibly marked with the symbol for unleaded petrol, specified in ISO 2575:1982, in a position immediately visible to a person filling the petrol tank. Additional markings are permitted.

5.1.4.   Provision shall be made to prevent excess evaporative emissions and fuel spillage caused by a missing fuel filler cap. This may be achieved by using one of the following:

5.1.4.1.

An automatically opening and closing, non-removable fuel filler cap;

5.1.4.2.

Design features which avoid excess evaporative emissions in the case of a missing fuel filler cap; or

5.1.4.3.

Any other provision which has the same effect. Examples may include, but are not limited to, a tethered filler cap, a chained filler cap or one utilising the same locking key for the filler cap as for the vehicle's ignition. In this case, the key shall be removable from the filler cap only in the locked condition.

5.1.5.   Provisions for electronic system security

5.1.5.1.   Any vehicle with an emission control computer shall include features to prevent modification, except as authorised by the manufacturer. The manufacturer shall authorise modifications if these modifications are necessary for the diagnosis, servicing, inspection, retrofitting or repair of the vehicle. Any reprogrammable computer codes or operating parameter shall be resistant to tampering and afford a level of protection at least as good as the provisions in ISO DIS 15031-7, dated 15 March 2001 (SAE J2186 dated October 1996). Any removable calibration memory chips shall be potted, encased in a sealed container, or protected by electronic algorithms and shall not be changeable without the use of specialised tools and procedures. Only features directly associated with emissions calibration or prevention of vehicle theft may be so protected.

5.1.5.2.   Computer-coded engine operating parameters shall not be changeable without the use of specialised tools and procedures (e.g. soldered or potted computer components or sealed (or soldered) computer enclosures).

5.1.5.3.   In the case of mechanical fuel-injection pumps fitted to compression-ignition engines, manufacturers shall take adequate steps to protect the maximum fuel delivery setting from tampering while a vehicle is in service.

5.1.5.4.   Manufacturers may apply to the Type Approval Authority for an exemption to one of these requirements for those vehicles which are unlikely to require protection. The criteria that the Type Approval Authority will evaluate in considering an exemption will include, but are not limited to, the current availability of performance chips, the high-performance capability of the vehicle and the projected sales volume of the vehicle.

5.1.5.5.   Manufacturers using programmable computer code systems (e.g. Electrical Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory, EEPROM) shall deter unauthorised reprogramming. Manufacturers shall include enhanced tamper protection strategies and write protect features requiring electronic access to an off-site computer maintained by the manufacturer. Methods giving an adequate level of tamper protection will be approved by the Type Approval Authority.

5.1.6.   It shall be possible to inspect the vehicle for roadworthiness test in order to determine its performance in relation to the data collected in accordance with paragraph 5.3.7. If this inspection requires a special procedure, this shall be detailed in the service manual (or equivalent media). This special procedure shall not require the use of special equipment other than that provided with the vehicle.

5.2.   Test procedure

Table A illustrates the various possibilities for type approval of a vehicle.

5.2.1.   Positive ignition engine-powered vehicles and hybrid electric vehicles equipped with a positive ignition engine shall be subject to the following tests:

 

Type I (verifying the average exhaust emissions after a cold start);

 

Type II (carbon monoxide emission at idling speed);

 

Type III (emission of crankcase gases);

 

Type IV (evaporation emissions);

5.3.   Description of tests

5.3.1.   Type I test (Verifying exhaust emissions after a cold start).

5.3.1.1.   Figure 1 illustrates the routes for Type I test. This test shall be carried out on all vehicles referred to in paragraph 1.

5.3.1.2.   The vehicle is placed on a chassis dynamometer equipped with a means of load and inertia simulation.

5.3.1.2.1.   A test lasting a total of 19 minutes and 40 seconds, made up of two parts, One and Two, is performed without interruption. An unsampled period of not more than 20 seconds may, with the agreement of the manufacturer, be introduced between the end of Part One and the beginning of Part Two in order to facilitate adjustment of the test equipment.

5.3.1.2.1.1.   Vehicles that are fuelled with LPG or NG/biomethane shall be tested in the Type I test for variation in the composition of LPG or NG/biomethane, as set out in Annex 12 to this Regulation. Vehicles that can be fuelled either with petrol or LPG or NG/biomethane shall be tested on both the fuels, tests on LPG or NG/biomethane being performed for variation in the composition of LPG or NG/biomethane, as set out in Annex 12 to this Regulation.

5.3.1.2.1.2.   Notwithstanding the requirement of paragraph 5.3.1.2.1.1, vehicles that can be fuelled with either petrol or a gaseous fuel, but where the petrol system is fitted for emergency purposes or starting only and which the petrol tank cannot contain more than 15 litres of petrol will be regarded for the Type I test as vehicles that can only run on a gaseous fuel.

5.3.1.2.2.   Part One of the test is made up of four elementary urban cycles. Each elementary urban cycle comprises fifteen phases (idling, acceleration, steady speed, deceleration, etc.).

5.3.1.2.3.   Part Two of the test is made up of one extra-urban cycle. The extra-urban cycle comprises 13 phases (idling, acceleration, steady speed, deceleration, etc.).

5.3.1.2.4.   During the test the exhaust gases are diluted and a proportional sample collected in one or more bags. The exhaust gases of the vehicle tested are diluted, sampled and analysed, following the procedure described below, and the total volume of the diluted exhaust is measured. Not only are the carbon monoxide, hydrocarbon and nitrogen oxide emissions recorded, but also the particulate pollutant emissions from vehicles equipped with compression-ignition engines.

5.3.1.3.   The test is carried out using the procedure of Type I test as described in Annex 4a to this Regulation. The method used to collect and analyse the gases is prescribed in Appendix 2 and Appendix 3 to Annex 4a to this Regulation, and the method to sample and analyse the particulates shall be as prescribed in Appendix 4 and Appendix 5 to Annex 4a to this Regulation.

5.3.1.4.   Subject to the requirements of paragraph 5.3.1.5 the test shall be repeated three times. The results are multiplied by the appropriate deterioration factors obtained from Table 3 of paragraph 5.3.6 and, in the case of periodically regenerating systems as defined in paragraph 2.20, shall also be multiplied by the factors Ki obtained from Annex 13 to this Regulation. The resulting masses of gaseous emissions and the mass of and number of particulates obtained shall be less than the limits shown in Table 1:

5.3.2.1.1.

Vehicles that can be fuelled either with petrol or with LPG or NG/biomethane shall be tested in the Type II test on both fuels.

5.3.2.1.2.

Notwithstanding the requirement of paragraph 5.3.2.1.1, vehicles that can be fuelled with either petrol or a gaseous fuel, but where the petrol system is fitted for emergency purposes or starting only and which the petrol tank cannot contain more than 15 litres of petrol will be regarded for the Type II test as vehicles that can only run on a gaseous fuel.

5.3.2.2.   For the Type II test set out in Annex 5 to this Regulation, at normal engine idling speed, the maximum permissible carbon monoxide content in the exhaust gases shall be that stated by the vehicle manufacturer. However, the maximum carbon monoxide content shall not exceed 0,3 per cent vol.

At high idle speed, the carbon monoxide content by volume of the exhaust gases shall not exceed 0,2 per cent, with the engine speed being at least 2 000 min– 1 and Lambda being 1 ± 0,03 or in accordance with the specifications of the manufacturer.

5.3.3.   Type III test (Verifying emissions of crankcase gases)

5.3.3.1.   This test shall be carried out on all vehicles referred to in paragraph 1 except those having compression-ignition engines.

5.3.3.1.1.   Vehicles that can be fuelled either with petrol or with LPG or NG should be tested in the Type III test on petrol only.

5.3.3.1.2.   Notwithstanding the requirement of paragraph 5.3.3.1.1, vehicles that can be fuelled with either petrol or a gaseous fuel, but where the petrol system is fitted for emergency purposes or starting only and which the petrol tank cannot contain more than 15 litres of petrol will be regarded for the Type III test as vehicles that can only run on a gaseous fuel.

5.3.3.2.   When tested in accordance with Annex 6 to this Regulation, the engine's crankcase ventilation system shall not permit the emission of any of the crankcase gases into the atmosphere.

5.3.4.   Type IV test (Determination of evaporative emissions from vehicles with positive ignition engines)

5.3.4.1.   This test shall be carried out on all vehicles referred to in paragraph 1 except those vehicles having a compression-ignition engine, vehicles fuelled with LPG or NG/biomethane.

5.3.4.1.1.   Vehicles that can be fuelled either with petrol or with LPG or with NG/biomethane should be tested in the Type IV test on petrol only.

5.3.4.2.   When tested in accordance with Annex 7 to this Regulation, evaporative emissions shall be less than 2 g/test.

5.3.5.   Type VI test (Verifying the average exhaust emissions of carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons after a cold start at low ambient temperature)

5.3.5.1.   This test shall be carried out on all vehicles referred to in paragraph 1 except those having compression-ignition engines.

However, for compression ignition vehicles when applying for type approval, manufacturers shall present to the Type Approval Authority information showing that the NOX after treatment device reaches a sufficiently high temperature for efficient operation within 400 seconds after a cold start at – 7 °C as described in the Type VI test.

In addition, the manufacturer shall provide the Type Approval Authority with information on the operating strategy of the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system, including information on its functioning at low temperatures.

This information shall also include a description of any effects on emissions.

The Type Approval Authority shall not grant type approval if the information provided is insufficient to demonstrate that the after treatment device actually reaches a sufficiently high temperature for efficient operation within the designated period of time.

5.3.5.1.1.   The vehicle is placed on a chassis dynamometer equipped with a means of load an inertia simulation.

5.3.5.1.2.   The test consists of the four elementary urban cycles of Part One of the Type I test. The Part One test is described in paragraph 6.1.1 of Annex 4a to this Regulation, and illustrated in Figure A4a/1 of the same annex. The low ambient temperature test lasting a total of 780 seconds shall be carried out without interruption and start at engine cranking.

5.3.5.1.3.   The low ambient temperature test shall be carried out at an ambient test temperature of 266 K (– 7 °C). Before the test is carried out, the test vehicles shall be conditioned in a uniform manner to ensure that the test results may be reproducible. The conditioning and other test procedures are carried out as described in Annex 8 to this Regulation.

5.3.5.1.4.   During the test, the exhaust gases are diluted and a proportional sample collected. The exhaust gases of the vehicle tested are diluted, sampled and analysed, following the procedure described in Annex 8 to this Regulation, and the total volume of the diluted exhaust is measured. The diluted exhaust gases are analysed for carbon monoxide and total hydrocarbons.

5.3.5.2.   Subject to the requirements in paragraphs 5.3.5.2.2 and 5.3.5.3 the test shall be performed three times. The resulting mass of carbon monoxide and hydrocarbon emission shall be less than the limits shown in Table 2.

5.3.5.2.1.   Notwithstanding the requirements of paragraph 5.3.5.2, for each pollutant, not more than one of the three results obtained may exceed the limit prescribed by not more than 10 per cent, provided the arithmetical mean value of the three results is below the prescribed limit. Where the prescribed limits are exceeded for more than one pollutant, it is immaterial whether this occurs in the same test or in different tests.

5.3.5.2.2.   The number of tests prescribed in paragraph 5.3.5.2 may, at the request of the manufacturer, be increased to 10 if the arithmetical mean of the first three results is lower than 110 per cent of the limit. In this case, the requirement after testing is only that the arithmetical mean of all 10 results shall be less than the limit value.

5.3.5.3.   The number of tests prescribed in paragraph 5.3.5.2 may be reduced according to paragraphs 5.3.5.3.1 and 5.3.5.3.2.

5.3.5.3.1.   Only one test is performed if the result obtained for each pollutant of the first test is less than or equal to 0,70 L.

5.3.5.3.2.   If the requirement of paragraph 5.3.5.3.1 is not satisfied, only two tests are performed if for each pollutant the result of the first test is less than or equal to 0,85 L and the sum of the first two results is less than or equal to 1,70 L and the result of the second test is less than or equal to L.

(V1 ≤ 0,85 L and V1 + V2 ≤ 1,70 L and V2 ≤ L).

5.3.6.   Type V test (Description of the endurance test for verifying the durability of pollution control devices)

The conformity of production procedures shall comply with those set out in the 1958 Agreement, Appendix 2 (E/ECE/324-E/ECE/TRANS/505/Rev.2), with the following requirements:

8.1.1.   Where applicable the tests of Types I, II, III, IV and the test for OBD shall be performed, as described in Table A of this Regulation. The specific procedures for conformity of production are set out in the paragraphs 8.2 to 8.6.

8.2.   Checking the conformity of the vehicle for a Type I test

8.2.1.   The Type I test shall be carried out on a vehicle of the same specification as described in the type approval certificate. When a Type I test is to be carried out for a vehicle type approval that has one or several extensions, the Type I tests shall be carried out either on the vehicle described in the initial information package or on the vehicle described in the information package relating to the relevant extension.

8.2.2.   After selection by the Type Approval Authority, the manufacturer shall not undertake any adjustment to the vehicles selected.

8.2.2.1.   Three vehicles shall be selected at random in the series and tested as described in paragraph 5.3.1 of this Regulation. The deterioration factors shall be used in the same way. The limit values are set out in Table 1 of paragraph 5.3.1.4.

(a)

The pollutant emissions (Type I) shall be measured at zero and at ‘x’ km on the first tested vehicle;

(b)

The evolution coefficient of the emissions between zero and ‘x’ km shall be calculated for each of the pollutant:

 

Emissions ‘x’ km/Emissions zero km

 

This may be less than 1; and

(c)

The other vehicles shall not be run in, but their zero km emissions shall be multiplied by the evolution coefficient.

In this case, the values to be taken shall be:

(i)

The values at ‘x’ km for the first vehicle;

(ii)

The values at zero km multiplied by the evolution coefficient for the other vehicles.

8.2.3.3.   All these tests shall be conducted with commercial fuel. However, at the manufacturer's request, the reference fuels described in Annex 10 or Annex 10a to this Regulation may be used.

8.3.   Checking the conformity of the vehicle for a Type III test

8.3.1.   If a Type III test is to be carried out, it shall be conducted on all vehicles selected for the Type I conformity of production test set out in paragraph 8.2. The conditions laid down in Annex 6 to this Regulation shall apply.

8.5.1.   If a verification of the performance of the OBD system is to be carried out, it shall be conducted in accordance with the following requirements:

8.5.1.1.

When the Type Approval Authority determines that the quality of production seems unsatisfactory, a vehicle shall be randomly taken from the series and subjected to the tests described in Appendix 1 to Annex 11 to this Regulation.

8.5.1.2.

The production shall be deemed to conform if this vehicle meets the requirements of the tests described in Appendix 1 to Annex 11 to this Regulation.

8.5.1.3.

If the vehicle taken from the series does not satisfy the requirements of paragraph 8.5.1.1, a further random sample of four vehicles shall be taken from the series and subjected to the tests described in Appendix 1 to Annex 11 to this Regulation. The tests may be carried out on vehicles which have been run in for no more than 15 000 km.

8.5.1.4.

The production shall be deemed to conform if at least three vehicles meet the requirements of the tests described in Appendix 1 to Annex 11 to this Regulation.

8.6.   Checking the conformity of a vehicle fuelled by LPG or NG/biomethane.

8.6.1.   Tests for conformity of production may be performed with a commercial fuel of which the C3/C4 ratio lies between those of the reference fuels in the case of LPG, or of which the Wobbe index lies between those of the extreme reference fuels in the case of NG. In that case a fuel analysis shall be presented to the Type Approval Authority.

9.3.   Selection of vehicles for in-service conformity

9.3.1.   The information gathered by the manufacturer shall be sufficiently comprehensive to ensure that in-service performance can be assessed for normal conditions of use. The manufacturer's sampling shall be drawn from at least two Contracting Parties with substantially different vehicle operating conditions. Factors such as differences in fuels, ambient conditions, average road speeds, and urban/highway driving split shall be taken into consideration in the selection of the Contracting Parties.

For OBD IUPRM testing only, vehicles fulfilling the criteria of paragraph 2.2.1 of Appendix 3 to this Regulation shall be included in the test sample.

9.3.2.   In selecting the Contracting Parties for sampling vehicles, the manufacturer may select vehicles from a Contracting Party that is considered to be particularly representative. In this case, the manufacturer shall demonstrate to the Type Approval Authority which granted the type approval that the selection is representative (e.g. by the market having the largest annual sales of a vehicle family within the applicable Contracting Party). When a family requires more than one sample lot to be tested, as defined in paragraph 9.3.5, the vehicles in the second and third sample lots shall reflect different vehicle operating conditions from those selected for the first sample.

9.3.3.   The emissions testing may be done at a test facility which is located in a different market or region from where the vehicles have been selected.

9.3.4.   The in-service tailpipe emissions conformity tests by the manufacturer shall be continuously carried out reflecting the production cycle of applicable vehicles types within a given in-service vehicle family. The maximum time period between commencing two in-service conformity checks shall not exceed 18 months. In the case of vehicle types covered by an extension to the type approval that did not require an emissions test, this period may be extended up to 24 months.

9.3.5.   Sample size

9.3.5.1   When applying the statistical procedure defined in Appendix 4 to this Regulation (i.e. for tailpipe emissions), the number of sample lots shall depend on the annual sales volume of an in-service family in the territories of a regional organization (e.g. European Union), as defined in Table 4.

Table 4

9.3.5.2.   For IUPR, the number of sample lots to be taken is described in Table 4 and is based on the number of vehicles of an OBD family that are approved with IUPR (subject to sampling).

For the first sampling period of an OBD family, all of the vehicle types in the family that are approved with IUPR shall be considered to be subject to sampling. For subsequent sampling periods, only vehicle types which have not been previously tested or are covered by emissions approvals that have been extended since the previous sampling period shall be considered to be subject to sampling.

For families consisting of fewer than 5 000 registrations that are subject to sampling within the sampling period, the minimum number of vehicles in a sample lot is six. For all other families, the minimum number of vehicles in a sample lot to be sampled is fifteen.

Each sample lot shall adequately represent the sales pattern, i.e. at least the high volume vehicle types (≥ 20 per cent of the family total) shall be represented.

Vehicles of small series productions with less than 1 000 vehicles per OBD family are exempted from minimum IUPR requirements as well as the requirement to demonstrate these to the Type Approval Authority.

9.4.   On the basis of the audit referred to in paragraph 9.2, the Type Approval Authority shall adopt one of the following decisions and actions:

(a)

Decide that the in-service conformity of a vehicle type, vehicle in-service family or vehicle OBD family is satisfactory and not take any further action;

(b)

Decide that the data provided by the manufacturer is insufficient to reach a decision and request additional information or test data from the manufacturer;

(c)

Decide that based on data from the Type Approval Authority or Contracting Party surveillance testing programmes, that information provided by the manufacturer is insufficient to reach a decision and request additional information or test data from the manufacturer; or

(d)

Decide that the in-service conformity of a vehicle type, that is part of an in-service family, or of an OBD family, is unsatisfactory and proceed to have such vehicle type or OBD family tested in accordance with Appendix 3 to this Regulation.

If, according to the IUPRM audit, the test criteria of paragraph 6.1.2, subparagraph (a) or (b) of Appendix 3 to this Regulation are met for the vehicles in a sample lot, the Type Approval Authority shall take the further action described in subparagraph (d) above.

9.4.1.   Where Type I tests are considered necessary to check the conformity of emission control devices with the requirements for their performance while in service, such tests shall be carried out using a test procedure meeting the statistical criteria defined in Appendix 4 to this Regulation.

9.4.2.   The Type Approval Authority, in cooperation with the manufacturer, shall select a sample of vehicles with sufficient mileage whose use under normal conditions can be reasonably assured. The manufacturer shall be consulted on the choice of the vehicles in the sample and allowed to attend the confirmatory checks of the vehicles.

9.4.3.   The manufacturer shall be authorized, under the supervision of the Type Approval Authority, to carry out checks, even of a destructive nature, on those vehicles with emission levels in excess of the limit values with a view to establishing possible causes of deterioration which cannot be attributed to the manufacturer (e.g. use of leaded petrol before the test date). Where the results of the checks confirm such causes, those test results shall be excluded from the conformity check.

10.   PENALTIES FOR NON-CONFORMITY OF PRODUCTION

10.1.   The approval granted in respect of a vehicle type pursuant to this Regulation, may be withdrawn if the requirements laid down in paragraph 8.1 are not complied with or if the vehicle or vehicles taken fail to pass the tests prescribed in paragraph 8.1.1.

10.2.   If a Contracting Party which applies this Regulation withdraws an approval it has previously granted, it shall forthwith so notify the other Contracting Parties applying this Regulation, by means of a communication form conforming to the model in Annex 2 to this Regulation.

11.   PRODUCTION DEFINITIVELY DISCONTINUED

If the holder of the approval completely ceases to manufacture a type of vehicle approved in accordance with this Regulation, he shall so inform the Type Approval Authority which granted the approval. Upon receiving the relevant communication, that authority shall inform thereof the other Contracting Parties to the 1958 Agreement applying this Regulation by means of copies of the communication form conforming to the model in Annex 2 to this Regulation.

APPENDIX 1

Procedure for verifying the conformity of production requirements if the production standard deviation given by the manufacturer is satisfactory

1.   This appendix describes the procedure to be used to verify the production conformity for the Type I test when the manufacturer's production standard deviation is satisfactory.

2.   With a minimum sample size of 3, the sampling procedure is set so that the probability of a lot passing a test with 40 per cent of the production defective is 0,95 (producer's risk = 5 per cent) while the probability of a lot being accepted with 65 per cent of the production defective is 0,l (consumer's risk = 10 per cent).

3.   For each of the pollutants given in Table 1 of paragraph 5.3.1.4, the following procedure is used (see Figure 2 in paragraph 8.2).

Taking:

L

=

the natural logarithm of the limit value for the pollutant,

xi

=

the natural logarithm of the measurement for the i-th vehicle of the sample,

s

=

an estimate of the production standard deviation (after taking the natural logarithm of the measurements),

n

=

the current sample number.

4.   Compute for the sample the test statistic quantifying the sum of the standard deviations from the limit and defined as:

Formula

5.   Then:

5.1.

If the test statistic is greater than the pass decision number for the sample size given in Table App1/1, the pollutant is passed;

5.2.

If the test statistic is less than the fail decision number for the sample size given in Table App1/1, the pollutant is failed; otherwise, an additional vehicle is tested and the calculation reapplied to the sample with a sample size one unit greater.

APPENDIX 2

Procedure for verifying the conformity of production requirements if the production standard deviation given by the manufacturer is either not satisfactory or not available

1.   This appendix describes the procedure to be used to verify the production conformity requirements for the Type I test when the manufacturer's evidence of production standard deviation is either not satisfactory or not available.

2.   With a minimum sample size of 3, the sampling procedure is set so that the probability of a lot passing a test with 40 per cent of the production defective is 0,95 (producer's risk = 5 per cent) while the probability of a lot being accepted with 65 per cent of the production defective is 0,l (consumer's risk = 10 per cent).

3.   The measurements of the pollutants given in Table 1 of paragraph 5.3.1.4 of this Regulation are considered to be log normally distributed and shall first be transformed by taking their natural logarithms. Let m0 and m denote the minimum and maximum sample sizes respectively (m0 = 3 and m = 32) and let n denote the current sample number.

4.   If the natural logarithms of the measurements in the series are x1, x2 …, xi and L is the natural logarithm of the limit value for the pollutant, then define:

 

d1 = x1 – L

 

Formula

Formula

5.   Table App2/1 shows values of the pass (An) and fail (Bn) decision numbers against current sample number. The test statistic is the ratio Formula and shall be used to determine whether the series has passed or failed as follows:

For mo ≤ n ≤ m

APPENDIX 3

IN-SERVICE CONFORMITY CHECK

1.   INTRODUCTION

This appendix sets out the criteria referred to in paragraphs 9.3 and 9.4 of this Regulation regarding the selection of vehicles for testing and the procedures for the in-service conformity control.

2.   SELECTION CRITERIA

The criteria for acceptance of a selected vehicle are defined for tailpipe emissions in paragraphs 2.1 to 2.8 of this appendix and for IUPRM in paragraphs 2.1 to 2.5 of this appendix. Information is collected by vehicle examination and an interview with the owner/driver.

2.1.   The vehicle shall belong to a vehicle type that is type approved under this Regulation and covered by a certificate of conformity in accordance with the 1958 Agreement. It shall be registered and used in a country of the Contracting Parties.

2.2.   The vehicle shall have been in service for at least 15 000 km or 6 months, whichever is the later, and for no more than 100 000 km or 5 years, whichever is the sooner.

2.2.1.   For checking IUPRM, the test sample shall include only vehicles that:

(a)

Have collected sufficient vehicle operation data for the monitor to be tested.

For monitors required to meet the in-use monitor performance ratio and to track and report ratio data pursuant to paragraph 7.6.1 of Appendix 1 to Annex 11 to this Regulation sufficient vehicle operation data shall mean the denominator meets the criteria set forth below. The denominator, as defined in paragraphs 7.3 and 7.5 of Appendix 1 to Annex 11 to this Regulation, for the monitor to be tested shall have a value equal to or greater than one of the following values:

(i)

75 for evaporative system monitors, secondary air system monitors, and monitors utilising a denominator incremented in accordance with paragraph 7.3.2 subparagraphs (a), (b) or (c) of Appendix 1 to Annex 11 to this Regulation (e.g. cold start monitors, air conditioning system monitors, etc.); or

(ii)

25 for particulate filter monitors and oxidation catalyst monitors utilising a denominator incremented in accordance with paragraph 7.3.2 subparagraph (d) of Appendix 1 to Annex 11 to this Regulation; or

(iii)

150 for catalyst, oxygen sensor, EG R, VVT, and all other component monitors;

(b)

Have not been tampered with or equipped with add-on or modified parts that would cause the OBD system not to comply with the requirements of Annex 11 to this Regulation.

2.3.   There shall be a maintenance record to show that the vehicle has been properly maintained, e.g. has been serviced in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations.

2.4.   The vehicle shall exhibit no indications of abuse (e.g. racing, overloading, misfuelling, or other misuse), or other factors (e.g. tampering) that could affect emission performance. The fault code and mileage information stored in the computer is taken into account. A vehicle shall not be selected for testing if the information stored in the computer shows that the vehicle has operated after a fault code was stored and a relatively prompt repair was not carried out.

2.5.   There shall have been no unauthorised major repair to the engine or major repair of the vehicle.

2.6.   The lead content and sulphur content of a fuel sample from the vehicle tank shall meet applicable standards and there shall be no evidence of misfuelling. Checks may be done in the exhaust, etc.

2.7.   There shall be no indication of any problem that might jeopardise the safety of laboratory personnel.

2.8.   All anti-pollution system components on the vehicle shall be in conformity with the applicable type approval.

3.   DIAGNOSIS AND MAINTENANCE

Diagnosis and any normal maintenance necessary shall be performed on vehicles accepted for testing, prior to measuring exhaust emissions, in accordance with the procedure laid down in paragraphs 3.1 to 3.8 of this appendix.

3.1.   The following checks shall be carried out: checks on air filter, all drive belts, all fluid levels, radiator cap, all vacuum hoses and electrical wiring related to the anti-pollution system for integrity; checks on ignition, fuel metering and anti-pollution device components for maladjustments and/or tampering. All discrepancies shall be recorded.

3.2.   The OBD system shall be checked for proper functioning. Any malfunction indications in the OBD memory shall be recorded and the requisite repairs shall be carried out. If the OBD malfunction indicator registers a malfunction during a preconditioning cycle, the fault may be identified and repaired. The test may be re-run and the results of that repaired vehicle used.

3.3.   The ignition system shall be checked and defective components replaced, for example spark plugs, cables, etc.

3.4.   The compression shall be checked. If the result is unsatisfactory the vehicle is rejected.

3.5.   The engine parameters shall be checked to the manufacturer's specifications and adjusted if necessary.

3.6.   If the vehicle is within 800 km of a scheduled maintenance service, that service shall be performed according to the manufacturer's instructions. Regardless of odometer reading, the oil and air filter may be changed at the request of the manufacturer.

3.7.   Upon acceptance of the vehicle, the fuel shall be replaced with appropriate emission test reference fuel, unless the manufacturer accepts the use of market fuel.

3.8.   In the case of vehicles equipped with periodically regenerating systems as defined in paragraph 2.20 of this Regulation, it shall be established that the vehicle is not approaching a regeneration period. (The manufacturer shall be given the opportunity to confirm this.)

3.8.1.   If this is the case, the vehicle shall be driven until the end of the regeneration. If regeneration occurs during emissions measurement, then a further test shall be carried out to ensure that regeneration has been completed. A complete new test shall then be performed, and the first and second test results not taken into account.

3.8.2.   As an alternative to paragraph 3.8.1 above, if the vehicle is approaching a regeneration the manufacturer may request that a specific conditioning cycle is used to ensure that regeneration (e.g. this may involve high speed, high load driving).

The manufacturer may request that testing may be carried out immediately after regeneration or after the conditioning cycle specified by the manufacturer and normal test preconditioning.

4.   IN-SERVICE TESTING

4.1.   When a check on vehicles is deemed necessary, emission tests in accordance with Annex 4a to this Regulation are performed on pre-conditioned vehicles selected in accordance with the requirements of paragraphs 2 and 3 of this appendix. Pre-conditioning cycles additional to those specified in paragraph 6.3 of Annex 4a to this Regulation will only be allowed if they are representative of normal driving.

4.2.   Vehicles equipped with an OBD system may be checked for proper in-service functionality of the malfunction indication, etc., in relation to levels of emissions (e.g. the malfunction indication limits defined in Annex 11 to this Regulation) for the type-approved specifications.

4.3.   The OBD system may be checked, for example, for levels of emissions above the applicable limit values with no malfunction indication, systematic erroneous activation of the malfunction indication and identified faulty or deteriorated components in the OBD system.

4.4.   If a component or system operates in a manner not covered by the particulars in the type approval certificate and/or information package for such vehicle types and such deviation has not been authorised under the 1958 Agreement, with no malfunction indication by the OBD, the component or system shall not be replaced prior to emission testing, unless it is determined that the component or system has been tampered with or abused in such a manner that the OBD does not detect the resulting malfunction.

5.   EVALUATION OF EMISSION TEST RESULTS

5.1.   The test results are submitted to the evaluation procedure in accordance with Appendix 4 to this Regulation.

5.2.   Test results shall not be multiplied by deterioration factors.

5.3.   In the case of periodically regenerating systems as defined in paragraph 2.20 of this Regulation, the results shall be multiplied by the factors Ki obtained at the time when type approval was granted.

6.   PLAN OF REMEDIAL MEASURES

6.1.   The Type Approval Authority shall request the manufacturer to submit a plan of remedial measures to remedy the non-compliance when:

6.1.1.

For tailpipe emissions more than one vehicle is found to be an outlying emitter that meets either of the following conditions:

(a)

The conditions of paragraph 3.2.2 of Appendix 4 to this Regulation and where both the Type Approval Authority and the manufacturer agree that the excess emission is due to the same cause; or

(b)

The conditions of paragraph 3.2.3 of Appendix 4 to this Regulation where the Type Approval Authority has determined that the excess emission is due to the same cause.

6.1.2.

For IUPRM of a particular monitor M the following statistical conditions are met in a test sample, the size of which is determined according to paragraph 9.3.5 of this Regulation:

(a)

For vehicles certified to a ratio of 0,1 in accordance with paragraph 7.1.5 of Appendix 1 to Annex 11 to this Regulation, the data collected from the vehicles indicate for at least one monitor M in the test sample either that the test sample average in-use-performance ratio is less than 0,1 or that 66 per cent or more of the vehicles in the test sample have an in-use monitor performance ratio of less than 0,1.

(b)

For vehicles certified to the full ratios in accordance with paragraph 7.1.4 of Appendix 1 to Annex 11 to this Regulation the data collected from the vehicles indicate for at least one monitor M in the test sample either that the test sample average in-use performance ratio in the test sample is less than the value Testmin (M) or that 66 per cent or more of the vehicles in the test sample have an in-use performance ratio of less than Testmin (M).

The value of Testmin(M) shall be:

(i)

0,230 if the monitor M is required to have an in-use ratio of 0,26;

(ii)

0,460 if the monitor M is required to have an in-use ratio of 0,52;

(iii)

0,297 if the monitor M is required to have an in-use ratio of 0,336;

according to paragraph 7.1.4 of Appendix 1 to Annex 11 to this Regulation.

6.2.   The plan of remedial measures shall be filed with the Type Approval Authority not later than 60 working days from the date of the notification referred to in paragraph 6.1 above. The Type Approval Authority shall within 30 working days declare its approval or disapproval of the plan of remedial measures. However, where the manufacturer can demonstrate, to the satisfaction of the competent Type Approval Authority, that further time is required to investigate the non-compliance in order to submit a plan of remedial measures, an extension is granted.

6.3.   The remedial measures shall apply to all vehicles likely to be affected by the same defect. The need to amend the type approval documents shall be assessed.

6.4.   The manufacturer shall provide a copy of all communications related to the plan of remedial measures, and shall also maintain a record of the recall campaign, and supply regular status reports to the Type Approval Authority.

6.5.   The plan of remedial measures shall include the requirements specified in paragraphs 6.5.1 to 6.5.11 below. The manufacturer shall assign a unique identifying name or number to the plan of remedial measures.

6.5.1.   A description of each vehicle type included in the plan of remedial measures;

APPENDIX 4

STATISTICAL PROCEDURE FOR TAILPIPE EMISSIONS IN-SERVICE CONFORMITY TESTING

1.   This appendix describes the procedure to be used to verify the in-service conformity requirements for the Type I test.

2.   Two different procedures are to be followed:

(a)

One dealing with vehicles identified in the sample, due to an emission related defect, causing outliers in the results (paragraph 3 of this appendix);

(b)

The other deals with the total sample (paragraph 4 of this appendix).

3.   Procedure to be followed with outlying emitters in the sample

3.1.   With a minimum sample size of three and a maximum sample size as determined by the procedure of paragraph 4 of this appendix, a vehicle is taken at random from the sample and the emissions of the regulated pollutants are measured to determine if it is an outlying emitter.

3.2.   A vehicle is said to be an outlying emitter when the conditions given in paragraph 3.2.1 below are met.

3.2.1.   In the case of a vehicle that has been type-approved according to the limit values given in Table 1 of paragraph 5.3.1.4 of this Regulation, an outlying emitter is a vehicle where the applicable limit value for any regulated pollutant is exceeded by a factor of 1,5.

3.2.2.   In the specific case of a vehicle with a measured emission for any regulated pollutant within the ‘intermediate zone’ (1).

3.2.2.1.   If the vehicle meets the conditions of this paragraph, the cause of the excess emission shall be determined and another vehicle is then taken at random from the sample.

3.2.2.2.   Where more than one vehicle meets the condition of this paragraph, the Type Approval Authority and the manufacturer shall determine if the excess emission from both vehicles is due to the same cause or not.

3.2.2.2.1.   If the Type Approval Authority and the manufacturer both agree that the excess emission is due to the same cause, the sample is regarded as having failed and the plan of remedial measures outlined in paragraph 6 of Appendix 3 to this Regulation applies.

3.2.2.2.2.   If the Type Approval Authority and the manufacturer cannot agree on either the cause of the excess emission from an individual vehicle or whether the causes for more than one vehicle are the same, another vehicle is taken at random from the sample, unless the maximum sample size has already been reached.

3.2.2.3.   When only one vehicle meeting the conditions of this paragraph has been found, or when more than one vehicle has been found and the Type Approval Authority and the manufacturer agree it is due to different causes, another vehicle is taken at random from the sample, unless the maximum sample size has already been reached.

3.2.2.4.   If the maximum sample size is reached and not more than one vehicle meeting the requirements of this paragraph has been found where the excess emission is due to the same cause, the sample is regarded as having passed with regard to the requirements of paragraph 3 of this appendix.

3.2.2.5.   If, at any time, the initial sample has been exhausted, another vehicle is added to the initial sample and that vehicle is taken.

3.2.2.6.   Whenever another vehicle is taken from the sample, the statistical procedure of paragraph 4 of this appendix is applied to the increased sample.

3.2.3.   In the specific case of a vehicle with a measured emission for any regulated pollutant within the ‘failure zone’ (2).

3.2.3.1.   If the vehicle meets the conditions of this paragraph, the Type Approval Authority shall determine the cause of the excess emission and another vehicle is then taken at random from the sample.

3.2.3.2.   Where more than one vehicle meets the condition of this paragraph, and the Type Approval Authority determines that the excess emission is due to the same cause, the manufacturer shall be informed that the sample is regarded as having failed, together with the reasons for that decision, and the plan of remedial measures outlined in paragraph 6 of Appendix 3 to this Regulation applies.

3.2.3.3.   When only one vehicle meeting the conditions of this paragraph has been found, or when more than one vehicle has been found and the Type Approval Authority has determined that it is due to different causes, another vehicle is taken at random from the sample, unless the maximum sample size has already been reached.

3.2.3.4.   If the maximum sample size is reached and not more than one vehicle meeting the requirements of this paragraph has been found where the excess emission is due to the same cause, the sample is regarded as having passed with regard to the requirements of paragraph 3 of this appendix.

3.2.3.5.   If, at any time, the initial sample has been exhausted, another vehicle is added to the initial sample and that vehicle is taken.

3.2.3.6.   Whenever another vehicle is taken from the sample, the statistical procedure of paragraph 4 of this appendix is applied to the increased sample.

3.2.4.   Whenever a vehicle is not found to be an outlying emitter, another vehicle is taken at random from the sample.

3.3.   When an outlying emitter is found, the cause of the excess emission shall be determined.

3.4.   When more than one vehicle is found to be an outlying emitter, due to the same cause, the sample is regarded as having failed.

3.5.   When only one outlying emitter has been found, or when more than one outlying emitter is found, but due to different causes, the sample is increased by one vehicle, unless the maximum sample size has already been reached.

3.5.1.   When in the increased sample more than one vehicle is found to be an outlying emitter, due to the same cause, the sample is regarded as having failed.

3.5.2.   When in the maximum sample size not more than one outlying emitter is found, where the excess emission is due to the same cause, the sample is regarded as having passed with regard to the requirements of paragraph 3 of this appendix.

3.6.   Whenever a sample is increased due to the requirements of paragraph 3.5 above, the statistical procedure of paragraph 4. is applied to the increased sample.

4.   Procedure to be followed without separate evaluation of outlying emitters in the sample

4.1.   With a minimum sample size of three the sampling procedure is set so that the probability of a batch passing a test with 40 per cent of the production defective is 0,95 (producer's risk = 5 per cent) while the probability of a batch being accepted with 75 per cent of the production defective is 0,15 (consumer's risk = 15 per cent).

4.2.   For each of the pollutants given in the Table 1 of paragraph 5.3.1.4 of this Regulation, the following procedure is used (see Figure App4/2 below).

Where:

L

=

the limit value for the pollutant,

xi

=

the value of the measurement for the i-th vehicle of the sample,

n

=

the current sample number.

4.3.   The test statistic quantifying the number of non-conforming vehicles, i.e. xi > L, is computed for the sample.

4.4.   Then:

(a)

If the test statistic does not exceed the pass decision number for the sample size given in Table App4/1, a pass decision is reached for the pollutant;

(b)

If the test statistic equals or exceeds the fail decision number for the sample size given in Table App4/1, a fail decision is reached for the pollutant;

(c)

Otherwise, an additional vehicle is tested and the procedure is applied to the sample with one extra unit.

In the following table the pass and fail decision numbers are computed in accordance with the International Standard ISO 8422:1991.

5.   A sample is regarded as having passed the test when it has passed both the requirements of paragraphs 3 and 4 of this appendix.

REQUIREMENTS FOR VEHICLES THAT USE A REAGENT FOR THE EXHAUST AFTER-TREATMENT SYSTEM

1.   INTRODUCTION

This appendix sets out the requirements for vehicles that rely on the use of a reagent for the after-treatment system in order to reduce emissions.

2.   REAGENT INDICATION

2.1.   The vehicle shall include a specific indicator on the dashboard that informs the driver of low levels of reagent in the reagent storage tank and of when the reagent tank becomes empty.

3.   DRIVER WARNING SYSTEM

3.1.   The vehicle shall include a warning system consisting of visual alarms that informs the driver when the reagent level is low, that the tank soon needs to be refilled, or the reagent is not of a quality specified by the manufacturer. The warning system may also include an audible component to alert the driver.

3.2.   The warning system shall escalate in intensity as the reagent approaches empty. It shall culminate in a driver notification that cannot be easily defeated or ignored. It shall not be possible to turn off the system until the reagent has been replenished.

3.3.   The visual warning shall display a message indicating a low level of reagent. The warning shall not be the same as the warning used for the purposes of OBD or other engine maintenance. The warning shall be sufficiently clear for the driver to understand that the reagent level is low (e.g. ‘urea level low’, ‘AdBlue level low’, or ‘reagent low’).

3.4.   The warning system does not initially need to be continuously activated, however the warning shall escalate so that it becomes continuous as the level of the reagent approaches the point where the driver inducement system in paragraph 8. of this appendix comes into effect. An explicit warning shall be displayed (e.g. ‘fill up urea’, ‘fill up AdBlue’, or ‘fill up reagent’). The continuous warning system may be temporarily interrupted by other warning signals providing important safety related messages.

3.5.   The warning system shall activate at a distance equivalent to a driving range of at least 2 400 km in advance of the reagent tank becoming empty.

4.   IDENTIFICATION OF INCORRECT REAGENT

4.1.   The vehicle shall include a means of determining that a reagent corresponding to the characteristics declared by the manufacturer and recorded in Annex 1 to this Regulation is present on the vehicle.

4.2.   If the reagent in the storage tank does not correspond to the minimum requirements declared by the manufacturer the driver warning system in paragraph 3 of this appendix shall be activated and shall display a message indicating an appropriate warning (e.g. ‘incorrect urea detected’, ‘incorrect AdBlue detected’, or ‘incorrect reagent detected’). If the reagent quality is not rectified within 50 km of the activation of the warning system then the driver inducement requirements of paragraph 8 of this appendix shall apply.

5.   REAGENT CONSUMPTION MONITORING

5.1.   The vehicle shall include a means of determining reagent consumption and providing off-board access to consumption information.

5.2.   Average reagent consumption and average demanded reagent consumption by the engine system shall be available via the serial port of the standard diagnostic connector. Data shall be available over the previous complete 2 400 km period of vehicle operation.

5.3.   In order to monitor reagent consumption, at least the following parameters within the vehicle shall be monitored:

(a)

The level of reagent in the on-vehicle storage tank; and

(b)

The flow of reagent or injection of reagent as close as technically possible to the point of injection into an exhaust after-treatment system.

5.4.   A deviation of more than 50 per cent between the average reagent consumption and the average demanded reagent consumption by the engine system over a period of 30 minutes of vehicle operation, shall result in the activation of the driver warning system in paragraph 3 above, which shall display a message indicating an appropriate warning (e.g. ‘urea dosing malfunction’, ‘AdBlue dosing malfunction’, or ‘reagent dosing malfunction’). If the reagent consumption is not rectified within 50 km of the activation of the warning system then the driver inducement requirements of paragraph 8 below shall apply.

5.5.   In the case of interruption in reagent dosing activity the driver warning system as referred to in paragraph 3 shall be activated, which shall display a message indicating an appropriate warning. This activation shall not be required where the interruption is demanded by the Engine Control Unit (ECU) because the vehicle operating conditions are such that the vehicle's emission performance does not require reagent dosing, provided that the manufacturer has clearly informed the Type Approval Authority when such operating conditions apply. If the reagent dosing is not rectified within 50 km of the activation of the warning system then the driver inducement requirements of paragraph 8 below shall apply.

6.   MONITORING NOx EMISSIONS

6.1.   As an alternative to the monitoring requirements in paragraphs 4 and 5 above, manufacturers may use exhaust gas sensors directly to sense excess NOx levels in the exhaust.

6.2.   The manufacturer shall demonstrate that use of the sensors referred to in paragraph 6.1 above and any other sensors on the vehicle, results in the activation of the driver warning system as referred to in paragraph 3 above, the display of a message indicating an appropriate warning (e.g. ‘emissions too high — check urea’, ‘emissions too high — check AdBlue’, ‘emissions too high — check reagent’), and the driver inducement system as referred to in paragraph 8.3 below, when the situations referred to in paragraphs 4.2, 5.4 or 5.5 above occur.

For the purposes of this paragraph these situations are presumed to occur if the applicable NOx OBD threshold limit of the tables set out in paragraph 3.3.2 of Annex 11 to this Regulation is exceeded.

NOx emissions during the test to demonstrate compliance with these requirements shall be no more than 20 per cent higher than the OBD threshold limits.

7.   STORAGE OF FAILURE INFORMATION

7.1.   Where reference is made to this paragraph, non-erasable Parameter Identifiers (PID) shall be stored identifying the reason for and the distance travelled by the vehicle during the inducement system activation. The vehicle shall retain a record of the PID for at least 800 days or 30 000 km of vehicle operation. The PID shall be made available via the serial port of a standard diagnostic connector upon request of a generic scan tool according to the provisions of paragraph 6.5.3.1 of Appendix 1 to Annex 11 to this Regulation. The information stored in the PID shall be linked to the period of cumulated vehicle operation, during which it has occurred, with an accuracy of not less than 300 days or 10 000 km.

7.2.   Malfunctions in the reagent dosing system attributed to technical failures (e.g. mechanical or electrical faults) shall also be subject to the OBD requirements in Annex 11 to this Regulation.

8.   DRIVER INDUCEMENT SYSTEM

8.1.   The vehicle shall include a driver inducement system to ensure that the vehicle operates with a functioning emissions control system at all times. The inducement system shall be designed so as to ensure that the vehicle cannot operate with an empty reagent tank.

8.1.1.   The requirement for a driver inducement system shall not apply to vehicles designed and constructed for use by the rescue services, armed services, civil defence, fire services and forces responsible for maintaining public order. Permanent deactivation of the driver inducement system for these vehicles shall only be done by the vehicle manufacturer.

8.2.   The inducement system shall activate at the latest when the level of reagent in the tank reaches a level equivalent to the average driving range of the vehicle with a complete tank of fuel. The system shall also activate when the failures in paragraphs 4, 5, or 6 above have occurred, depending on the NOx monitoring approach. The detection of an empty reagent tank and the failures mentioned in paragraphs 4, 5, or 6 above shall result in the failure information storage requirements of paragraph 7 above coming into effect.

8.3.   The manufacturer shall select which type of inducement system to install. The options for a system are described in paragraphs 8.3.1, 8.3.2, 8.3.3 and 8.3.4 below.

8.3.1.   A ‘no engine restart after countdown’ approach allows a countdown of restarts or distance remaining once the inducement system activates. Engine starts initiated by the vehicle control system, such as start-stop systems, are not included in this countdown. Engine restarts shall be prevented immediately after the reagent tank becomes empty or a distance equivalent to a complete tank of fuel has been exceeded since the activation of the inducement system, whichever occurs earlier.

8.3.2.   A ‘no start after refuelling’ system results in a vehicle being unable to start after re-fuelling if the inducement system has activated.

8.3.3.   A ‘fuel-lockout’ approach prevents the vehicle from being refuelled by locking the fuel filler system after the inducement system activates. The lockout system shall be robust to prevent it being tampered with.

8.3.4.   A ‘performance restriction’ approach restricts the speed of the vehicle after the inducement system activates. The level of speed limitation shall be noticeable to the driver and significantly reduce the maximum speed of the vehicle. Such limitation shall enter into operation gradually or after an engine start. Shortly before engine restarts are prevented, the speed of the vehicle shall not exceed 50 km/h. Engine restarts shall be prevented immediately after the reagent tank becomes empty or a distance equivalent to a complete tank of fuel has been exceeded since the activation of inducement system, whichever occurs earlier.

8.4.   Once the inducement system has fully activated and disabled the vehicle, the inducement system shall only be deactivated if the quantity of reagent added to the vehicle is equivalent to 2 400 km average driving range, or the failures specified in paragraphs 4, 5, or 6 of this appendix have been rectified. After a repair has been carried out to correct a fault where the OBD system has been triggered under paragraph 7.2 above, the inducement system may be reinitialised via the OBD serial port (e.g. by a generic scan tool) to enable the vehicle to be restarted for self-diagnosis purposes. The vehicle shall operate for a maximum of 50 km to enable the success of the repair to be validated. The inducement system shall be fully reactivated if the fault persists after this validation.

8.5.   The driver warning system referred to in paragraph 3 of this appendix shall display a message indicating clearly:

(a)

The number of remaining restarts and/or the remaining distance; and

(b)

The conditions under which the vehicle can be restarted.

8.6.   The driver inducement system shall be deactivated when the conditions for its activation have ceased to exist. The driver inducement system shall not be automatically deactivated without the reason for its activation having been remedied.

8.7.   Detailed written information fully describing the functional operation characteristics of the driver inducement system shall be provided to the Type Approval Authority at the time of approval.

8.8.   As part of the application for type approval under this Regulation, the manufacturer shall demonstrate the operation of the driver warning and inducement systems.

9.   INFORMATION REQUIREMENTS

9.1.   The manufacturer shall provide all owners of new vehicles written information about the emission control system. This information shall state that if the vehicle emission control system is not functioning correctly, the driver shall be informed of a problem by the driver warning system and that the driver inducement system shall consequentially result in the vehicle being unable to start.

9.2.   The instructions shall indicate requirements for the proper use and maintenance of vehicles, including the proper use of consumable reagents.

9.3.   The instructions shall specify if consumable reagents have to be refilled by the vehicle operator between normal maintenance intervals. They shall indicate how the driver should refill the reagent tank. The information shall also indicate a likely rate of reagent consumption for that type of vehicle and how often it should be replenished.

9.4.   The instructions shall specify that use of, and refilling of, a required reagent of the correct specifications is mandatory for the vehicle to comply with the certificate of conformity issued for that vehicle.

9.5.   The instructions shall state that it may be a criminal offence to use a vehicle that does not consume any reagent if it is required for the reduction of emissions.

9.6.   The instructions shall explain how the warning system and driver inducement systems work. In addition, the consequences of ignoring the warning system and not replenishing the reagent shall be explained.

10.   OPERATING CONDITIONS OF THE AFTER-TREATMENT SYSTEM

Manufacturers shall ensure that the emission control system retains its emission control function during all ambient conditions, especially at low ambient temperatures. This includes taking measures to prevent the complete freezing of the reagent during parking times of up to 7 days at 258 K (– 15 °C) with the reagent tank 50 per cent full. If the reagent has frozen, the manufacturer shall ensure that reagent shall be available for use within 20 minutes of the vehicle starting at 258 K (– 15 °C) measured inside the reagent tank, so as to ensure correct operation of the emission control system.

6.1.3.   Use of the gearbox

6.1.3.1.   If the maximum speed which can be attained in first gear is below 15 km/h, the second, third and fourth gears shall be used for the urban cycle (Part One) and the second, third, fourth and fifth gears for the extra-urban cycle (Part Two). The second, third and fourth gears may also be used for the urban cycle (Part One) and the second, third, fourth and fifth gears for the extra-urban cycle (Part Two) when the manufacturer's instructions recommend starting in second gear on level ground, or when first gear is therein defined as a gear reserved for cross-country driving, crawling or towing.

Vehicles which do not attain the acceleration and maximum speed values required in the operating cycle shall be operated with the accelerator control fully depressed until they once again reach the required operating curve. Deviations from the operating cycle shall be recorded in the test report.

Vehicles equipped with semi-automatic-shift gearboxes shall be tested by using the gears normally employed for driving, and the gear shift is used in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.

6.1.3.2.   Vehicles equipped with automatic-shift gearboxes shall be tested with the highest gear (‘Drive’) engaged. The accelerator shall be used in such a way as to obtain the steadiest acceleration possible, enabling the various gears to be engaged in the normal order. Furthermore, the gear-change points shown in Tables A4a/1 and A4a/2 of this annex shall not apply; acceleration shall continue throughout the period represented by the straight line connecting the end of each period of idling with the beginning of the next following period of steady speed. The tolerances given in paragraphs 6.1.3.4 and 6.1.3.5 shall apply.

6.1.3.3.   Vehicles equipped with an overdrive that the driver can actuate shall be tested with the overdrive out of action for the urban cycle (Part One) and with the overdrive in action for the extra-urban cycle (Part Two).

6.1.3.4.   A tolerance of ± 2 km/h shall be allowed between the indicated speed and the theoretical speed during acceleration, during steady speed, and during deceleration when the vehicle's brakes are used. If the vehicle decelerates more rapidly without the use of the brakes, only the provisions of paragraph 6.4.4.3 shall apply. Speed tolerances greater than those prescribed shall be accepted during phase changes provided that the tolerances are never exceeded for more than 0,5 s on any one occasion.

6.1.3.5.   The time tolerances shall be ± 1,0 s. The above tolerances shall apply equally at the beginning and at the end of each gear-changing period for the urban cycle (Part One) and for the operations Nos 3, 5 and 7 of the extra-urban cycle (Part Two). It should be noted that the time of two seconds allowed includes the time for changing gear and, if necessary, a certain amount of latitude to catch up with the cycle.

6.2.   Test preparation

6.2.1.   Load and inertia setting

6.2.1.1.   Load determined with vehicle road test

The dynamometer shall be adjusted so that the total inertia of the rotating masses will simulate the inertia and other road load forces acting on the vehicle when driving on the road. The means by which this load is determined is described in paragraph 5 of this annex.

Dynamometer with fixed load curve: the load simulator shall be adjusted to absorb the power exerted on the driving wheels at a steady speed of 80 km/h and the absorbed power at 50 km/h shall be noted.

Dynamometer with adjustable load curve: the load simulator shall be adjusted in order to absorb the power exerted on the driving wheels at steady speeds of 120, 100, 80, 60 and 40 and 20 km/h.

6.2.1.2.   Load determined by vehicle reference mass

With the manufacturer's agreement the following method may be used.

The brake is adjusted so as to absorb the load exerted at the driving wheels at a constant speed of 80 km/h, in accordance with Table A4a/3.

If the corresponding equivalent inertia is not available on the dynamometer, the larger value closest to the vehicle reference mass will be used.

In the case of vehicles other than passenger cars, with a reference mass of more than 1 700 kg or vehicles with permanent all-wheel drive, the power values given in Table A4a/3 are multiplied by a factor 1,3.

6.2.1.3.   The method used and the values obtained (equivalent inertia - characteristic adjustment parameter) shall be recorded in the test report.

6.2.2.   Preliminary testing cycles

Preliminary testing cycles should be carried out if necessary to determine how best to actuate the accelerator and brake controls so as to achieve a cycle approximating to the theoretical cycle within the prescribed limits under which the cycle is carried out.

6.2.3.   Tyre pressures

The tyre pressures shall be the same as that specified by the manufacturer and used for the preliminary road test for brake adjustment. The tyre pressure may be increased by up to 50 per cent from the manufacturer's recommended setting in the case of a two-roller dynamometer. The actual pressure used shall be recorded in the test report.

6.2.4.   Background particulate mass measurement

The particulate background level of the dilution air may be determined by passing filtered dilution air through the particulate filter. This shall be drawn from the same point as the particulate sample. One measurement may be performed prior to or after the test. Particulate mass measurements may be corrected by subtracting the background contribution from the dilution system. The permissible background contribution shall be ≤ 1 mg/km (or equivalent mass on the filter). If the background exceeds this level, the default figure of 1 mg/km (or equivalent mass on the filter) shall be employed. Where subtraction of the background contribution gives a negative result, the particulate mass result shall be considered to be zero.

6.2.5.   Background particulate number measurements

The subtraction of background particulate numbers may be determined by sampling dilution air drawn from a point downstream of the particulate and hydrocarbon filters into the particulate number measurement system. Background correction of particulate number measurements shall not be allowed for type approval, but may be used at the manufacturer's request for conformity of production and in service conformity where there are indications that tunnel contribution is significant.

6.2.6.   Particulate mass filter selection

A single particulate filter without back-up shall be employed for both urban and extra-urban phases of the cycle combined.

Twin particulate filters, one for the urban, one for the extra-urban phase, may be used without back-up filters, only where the pressure-drop increase across the sample filter between the beginning and the end of the emissions test is otherwise expected to exceed 25 kPa.

6.2.7.   Particulate mass filter preparation

6.2.7.1.   Particulate mass sampling filters shall be conditioned (as regards temperature and humidity) in an open dish that has been protected against dust ingress for at least 2 and for not more than 80 hours before the test in an air-conditioned chamber. After this conditioning, the uncontaminated filters will be weighed and stored until they are used. If the filters are not used within one hour of their removal from the weighing chamber they shall be re-weighed.

6.2.7.2.   The one hour limit may be replaced by an eight-hour limit if one or both of the following conditions are met:

6.2.7.2.1.

A stabilized filter is placed and kept in a sealed filter holder assembly with the ends plugged; or

6.2.7.2.2.

A stabilized filter is placed in a sealed filter holder assembly which is then immediately placed in a sample line through which there is no flow.

6.2.7.3.   The particulate sampling system shall be started and prepared for sampling.

6.2.8.   Particulate number measurement preparation

6.2.8.1.   The particulate specific dilution system and measurement equipment shall be started and readied for sampling.

6.2.8.2.   Prior to the test(s) the correct function of the particulate counter and volatile particulate remover elements of the particulate sampling system shall be confirmed according to paragraphs 2.3.1 and 2.3.3 of Appendix 5 to this annex.

The particulate counter response shall be tested at near zero prior to each test and, on a daily basis, at high particulate concentrations using ambient air.

When the inlet is equipped with a High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter, it shall be demonstrated that the entire particulate sampling system is free from any leaks.

6.2.9.   Checking the gas analysers

The emissions analysers for the gases shall be set at zero and spanned. The sample bags shall be evacuated.

6.3.   Conditioning procedure

6.3.1.   For the purpose of measuring particulates, at most 36 hours and at least 6 hours before testing, the Part Two cycle described in paragraph 6.1 of this annex shall be used for vehicle pre-conditioning. Three consecutive cycles shall be driven. The dynamometer setting shall be indicated as in paragraph 6.2.1 of this annex.

At the request of the manufacturer, vehicles fitted with indirect injection positive ignition engines may be preconditioned with one Part One and two Part Two driving cycles.

6.3.2.   In a test facility in which there may be possible contamination of a low particulate emitting vehicle test with residue from a previous test on a high particulate emitting vehicle, it is recommended, for the purpose of sampling equipment pre-conditioning, that a 120 km/h steady state drive cycle of 20 minutes duration followed by three consecutive Part Two cycles be driven by a low particulate emitting vehicle.

After this preconditioning, and before testing, vehicles shall be kept in a room in which the temperature remains relatively constant between 293 and 303 K (20 °C and 30 °C). This conditioning shall be carried out for at least six hours and continue until the engine oil temperature and coolant, if any, are within ± 2 K of the temperature of the room.

If the manufacturer so requests, the test shall be carried out not later than 30 hours after the vehicle has been run at its normal temperature.

6.3.3.   For positive ignition engined vehicles fuelled with LPG or NG/biomethane or so equipped that they can be fuelled with either petrol or LPG or NG/biomethane, between the tests on the first gaseous reference fuel and the second gaseous reference fuel, the vehicle shall be preconditioned before the test on the second reference fuel. This preconditioning is done on the second reference fuel by driving a preconditioning cycle consisting of one Part One (urban part) and two times Part Two (extra-urban part) of the test cycle described in paragraph 6.1 of this annex. On the manufacturer's request and with the agreement of the Technical Service this preconditioning may be extended. The dynamometer setting shall be the one indicated in paragraph 6.2 of this annex.

6.4.   Test procedure

6.4.1.   Starting up the engine

6.4.1.1.   The engine shall be started up by means of the devices provided for this purpose according to the manufacturer's instructions, as incorporated in the drivers' handbook of production vehicles.

6.4.1.2.   The first cycle starts on the initiation of the engine start-up procedure.

6.4.1.3.   In cases where LPG or NG/biomethane is used as a fuel it is permissible that the engine is started on petrol and switched to LPG or NG/biomethane after a predetermined period of time which cannot be changed by the driver. This period of time shall not exceed 60 seconds.

6.4.2.   Idling

6.4.2.1.   Manual-shift or semi-automatic gearbox, see Tables A4a/1 and A4a/2 of this annex.

6.4.2.2.   Automatic-shift gearbox

After initial engagement the selector shall not be operated at any time during the test except in the case specified in paragraph 6.4.3.3 of this annex or if the selector can actuate the overdrive, if any.

6.4.3.   Accelerations

6.4.3.1.   Accelerations shall be so performed that the rate of acceleration is as constant as possible throughout the operation.

6.4.3.2.   If an acceleration cannot be carried out in the prescribed time, the extra time required shall be deducted from the time allowed for changing gear, if possible, but otherwise from the subsequent steady-speed period.

6.4.3.3.   Automatic-shift gearboxes

1.2.   Specific requirements

1.2.1.   The setting of the dynamometer shall not be affected by the lapse of time. It shall not produce any vibrations perceptible to the vehicle and likely to impair the vehicle's normal operations.

1.2.2.   The chassis dynamometer may have one or two rollers. The front roller shall drive, directly or indirectly, the inertial masses and the power absorption device.

1.2.3.   It shall be possible to measure and read the indicated load to an accuracy of ± 5 per cent.

1.2.4.   In the case of a dynamometer with a fixed load curve, the accuracy of the load setting at 80 km/h shall be ± 5 per cent. In the case of a dynamometer with adjustable load curve, the accuracy of matching dynamometer load to road load shall be ± 5 per cent at 120, 100, 80, 60, and 40 km/h and ± 10 per cent at 20 km/h.

1.2.6.   The speed of the vehicle shall be measured by the speed of rotation of the roller (the front roller in the case of a two-roller dynamometer). It shall be measured with an accuracy of ± 1 km/h at speeds above 10 km/h.

The distance actually driven by the vehicle shall be measured by the movement of rotation of the roller (the front roller in the case of a two-roller dynamometer).

2.   DYNAMOMETER CALIBRATION PROCEDURE

2.1.   Introduction

This paragraph describes the method to be used to determine the load absorbed by a dynamometer brake. The load absorbed comprises the load absorbed by frictional effects and the load absorbed by the power-absorption device.

The dynamometer is brought into operation beyond the range of test speeds. The device used for starting up the dynamometer is then disconnected: the rotational speed of the driven roller decreases.

The kinetic energy of the rollers is dissipated by the power-absorption unit and by the frictional effects. This method disregards variations in the roller's internal frictional effects caused by rollers with or without the vehicle. The frictional effects of the rear roller shall be disregarded when the roller is free.

2.2.   Calibration of the load indicator at 80 km/h

The following procedure shall be used for calibration of the load indicator to 80 km/h as a function of the load absorbed (see also Figure A4a.App1/4):

2.2.1.

Measure the rotational speed of the roller if this has not already been done. A fifth wheel, a revolution counter or some other method may be used.

2.2.2.

Place the vehicle on the dynamometer or devise some other method of starting up the dynamometer.

2.2.3.

Use the flywheel or any other system of inertia simulation for the particular inertia class to be used.

APPENDIX 2

EXHAUST DILUTION SYSTEM

1.   SYSTEM SPECIFICATION

1.1.   System overview

A full-flow exhaust dilution system shall be used. This requires that the vehicle exhaust be continuously diluted with ambient air under controlled conditions. The total volume of the mixture of exhaust and dilution air shall be measured and a continuously proportional sample of the volume shall be collected for analysis. The quantities of pollutants are determined from the sample concentrations, corrected for the pollutant content of the ambient air and the totalised flow over the test period.

The exhaust dilution system shall consist of a transfer tube, a mixing chamber and dilution tunnel, a dilution air conditioning, a suction device and a flow measurement device. Sampling probes shall be fitted in the dilution tunnel as specified in Appendices 3, 4 and 5 to this annex.

The mixing chamber described above will be a vessel, such as those illustrated in Figures A4a.App2/6 and A4a.App2/7, in which vehicle exhaust gases and the dilution air are combined so as to produce a homogeneous mixture at the chamber outlet.

1.2.   General requirements

1.2.1.   The vehicle exhaust gases shall be diluted with a sufficient amount of ambient air to prevent any water condensation in the sampling and measuring system at all conditions which may occur during a test.

1.2.2.   The mixture of air and exhaust gases shall be homogeneous at the point where the sampling probe is located (see paragraph 1.3.3 of this appendix). The sampling probe shall extract a representative sample of the diluted exhaust gas.

1.2.3.   The system shall enable the total volume of the diluted exhaust gases to be measured.

1.2.4.   The sampling system shall be gas-tight. The design of the variable-dilution sampling system and the materials that go to make it up shall be such that they do not affect the pollutant concentration in the diluted exhaust gases. Should any component in the system (heat exchanger, cyclone separator, blower, etc.) change the concentration of any of the pollutants in the diluted exhaust gases and the fault cannot be corrected, then sampling for that pollutant shall be carried out upstream from that component.

1.2.5.   All parts of the dilution system that are in contact with raw and diluted exhaust gas, shall be designed to minimise deposition or alteration of the particulates. All parts shall be made of electrically conductive materials that do not react with exhaust gas components, and shall be electrically grounded to prevent electrostatic effects.

1.2.6.   If the vehicle being tested is equipped with an exhaust pipe comprising several branches, the connecting tubes shall be connected as near as possible to the vehicle without adversely affecting its operation.

1.2.7.   The variable-dilution system shall be so designed as to enable the exhaust gases to be sampled without appreciably changing the back-pressure at the exhaust pipe outlet.

1.2.8.   The connecting tube between the vehicle and dilution system shall be designed so as to minimize heat loss.

1.3.   Specific requirements

1.3.1.   Connection to vehicle exhaust

The connecting tube between the vehicle exhaust outlets and the dilution system shall be as short as possible; and satisfy the following requirements:

(a)

Be less than 3,6 m long, or less than 6,1 m long if heat insulated. Its internal diameter may not exceed 105 mm;

(b)

Shall not cause the static pressure at the exhaust outlets on the vehicle being tested to differ by more than ± 0,75 kPa at 50 km/h, or more than ± 1,25 kPa for the whole duration of the test from the static pressures recorded when nothing is connected to the vehicle exhaust outlets. The pressure shall be measured in the exhaust outlet or in an extension having the same diameter, as near as possible to the end of the pipe. Sampling systems capable of maintaining the static pressure to within ± 0,25 kPa may be used if a written request from a manufacturer to the Technical Service substantiates the need for the closer tolerance;

(c)

Shall not change the nature of the exhaust gas;

(d)

Any elastomer connectors employed shall be as thermally stable as possible and have minimum exposure to the exhaust gases.

1.3.2.   Dilution air conditioning

The dilution air used for the primary dilution of the exhaust in the Constant Volume Sampling (CVS) tunnel shall be passed through a medium capable of reducing particulates in the most penetrating particulate size of the filter material by ≥ 99,95 per cent, or through a filter of at least class H13 of EN 1822:1998. This represents the specification of High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters. The dilution air may optionally be charcoal scrubbed before being passed to the HEPA filter. It is recommended that an additional coarse particulate filter is situated before the HEPA filter and after the charcoal scrubber, if used.

At the vehicle manufacturer's request, the dilution air may be sampled according to good engineering practice to determine the tunnel contribution to background particulate mass levels, which can then be subtracted from the values measured in the diluted exhaust.

1.3.3.   Dilution tunnel

Provision shall be made for the vehicle exhaust gases and the dilution air to be mixed. A mixing orifice may be used.

In order to minimise the effects on the conditions at the exhaust outlet and to limit the drop in pressure inside the dilution-air conditioning device, if any, the pressure at the mixing point shall not differ by more than ± 0,25 kPa from atmospheric pressure.

The homogeneity of the mixture in any cross-section at the location of the sampling probe shall not vary by more than ± 2 per cent from the average of the values obtained for at least five points located at equal intervals on the diameter of the gas stream.

For particulate and particulate emissions sampling, a dilution tunnel shall be used which:

(a)

Shall consist of a straight tube of electrically-conductive material, which shall be earthed;

(b)

Shall be small enough in diameter to cause turbulent flow (Reynolds number ≥ 4 000) and of sufficient length to cause complete mixing of the exhaust and dilution air;

(c)

Shall be at least 200 mm in diameter;

(d)

May be insulated.

1.3.4.   Suction device

This device may have a range of fixed speeds to ensure sufficient flow to prevent any water condensation. This result is generally obtained if the flow is either:

(a)

Twice as high as the maximum flow of exhaust gas produced by accelerations of the driving cycle; or

(b)

Sufficient to ensure that the CO2 concentration in the dilute-exhaust sample bag is less than 3 per cent by volume for petrol and diesel, less than 2,2 per cent by volume for LPG and less than 1,5 per cent by volume for NG/biomethane.

1.3.5.   Volume measurement in the primary dilution system

The method of measuring total dilute exhaust volume incorporated in the constant volume sampler shall be such that measurement is accurate to ± 2 per cent under all operating conditions. If the device cannot compensate for variations in the temperature of the mixture of exhaust gases and dilution air at the measuring point, a heat exchanger shall be used to maintain the temperature to within ± 6 K of the specified operating temperature.

If necessary, some form of protection for the volume measuring device may be used e.g. a cyclone separator, bulk stream filter, etc.

A temperature sensor shall be installed immediately before the volume measuring device. This temperature sensor shall have an accuracy and a precision of ± 1 K and a response time of 0,1 s at 62 per cent of a given temperature variation (value measured in silicone oil).

The measurement of the pressure difference from atmospheric pressure shall be taken upstream from and, if necessary, downstream from the volume measuring device.

The pressure measurements shall have a precision and an accuracy of ± 0,4 kPa during the test.

1.4.   Recommended system descriptions

Figure A4a.App2/6 and Figure A4a.App2/7 are schematic drawings of two types of recommended exhaust dilution systems that meet the requirements of this annex.

Since various configurations can produce accurate results, exact conformity with these figures is not essential. Additional components such as instruments, valves, solenoids and switches may be used to provide additional information and co-ordinate the functions of the component system.

The Positive Displacement Pump (PDP) full flow dilution system satisfies the requirements of this annex by metering the flow of gas through the pump at constant temperature and pressure. The total volume is measured by counting the revolutions made by the calibrated positive displacement pump. The proportional sample is achieved by sampling with pump, flow-meter and flow control valve at a constant flow rate. The collecting equipment consists of:

1.4.1.1.

A filter Dilution Air Filter (DAF) for the dilution air, which can be preheated if necessary. This filter shall consist of the following filters in sequence: an optional activated charcoal filter (inlet side), and a high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter (outlet side). It is recommended that an additional coarse particulate filter is situated before the HEPA filter and after the charcoal filter, if used. The purpose of the charcoal filter is to reduce and stabilize the hydrocarbon concentrations of ambient emissions in the dilution air;

1.4.1.2.

A Transfer Tube (TT) by which vehicle exhaust is admitted into a Dilution Tunnel (DT) in which the exhaust gas and dilution air are mixed homogeneously;

1.4.1.3.

The PDP, producing a constant-volume flow of the air/exhaust-gas mixture. The PDP revolutions, together with associated temperature and pressure measurement are used to determine the flowrate;

1.4.1.4.

A Heat Exchanger (HE) of a capacity sufficient to ensure that throughout the test the temperature of the air/exhaust-gas mixture measured at a point immediately upstream of the positive displacement pump is within 6 K of the average operating temperature during the test. This device shall not affect the pollutant concentrations of diluted gases taken off after for analysis.

1.4.1.5.

A Mixing Chamber (MC) in which exhaust gas and air are mixed homogeneously, and which may be located close to the vehicle so that the length of the TT is minimized.

1.4.2.   Full flow dilution system with critical flow venturi

The use of a Critical Flow Venturi (CFV) for the full flow dilution system is based on the principles of flow mechanics for critical flow. The variable mixture flow rate of dilution and exhaust gas is maintained at sonic velocity which is directly proportional to the square root of the gas temperature. Flow is continually monitored, computed and integrated throughout the test.

The use of an additional critical-flow sampling venturi ensures the proportionality of the gas samples taken from the dilution tunnel. As both pressure and temperature are equal at the two venturi inlets the volume of the gas flow diverted for sampling is proportional to the total volume of diluted exhaust-gas mixture produced, and thus the requirements of this annex are met. The collecting equipment consists of:

1.4.2.1.

A filter (DAF) for the dilution air, which can be preheated if necessary. This filter shall consist of the following filters in sequence: an optional activated charcoal filter (inlet side), and a HEPA filter (outlet side). It is recommended that an additional coarse particulate filter is situated before the HEPA filter and after the charcoal filter, if used. The purpose of the charcoal filter is to reduce and stabilize the hydrocarbon concentrations of ambient emissions in the dilution air;

1.4.2.2.

A MC in which exhaust gas and air are mixed homogeneously, and which may be located close to the vehicle so that the length of the TT is minimized;

1.4.2.3.

A DT from which particulates are sampled;

1.4.2.4.

Some form of protection for the measurement system may be used e.g. a cyclone separator, bulk stream filter, etc.;

1.4.2.5.

A measuring CFV, to measure the flow volume of the diluted exhaust gas;

1.4.2.6.

A blower (BL), of sufficient capacity to handle the total volume of diluted exhaust gas.

2.   CVS CALIBRATION PROCEDURE

2.1.   General requirements

The CVS system shall be calibrated by using an accurate flow-meter and a restricting device. The flow through the system shall be measured at various pressure readings and the control parameters of the system measured and related to the flows. The flow-metering device shall be dynamic and suitable for the high flow-rate encountered in constant volume sampler testing. The device shall be of certified accuracy traceable to an approved national or international standard.

2.1.1.   Various types of flow-meter may be used, e.g. calibrated venturi, laminar flow-meter, calibrated turbine-meter, provided that they are dynamic measurement systems and can meet the requirements of paragraph 1.3.5 of this appendix.

2.1.2.   The following paragraphs give details of methods of calibrating PDP and CFV units, using a laminar flow-meter, which gives the required accuracy, together with a statistical check on the calibration validity.

2.2.   Calibration of the PDP

2.2.1.   The following calibration procedure outlines the equipment, the test configuration and the various parameters that are measured to establish the flow-rate of the CVS pump. All the parameters related to the pump are simultaneously measured with the parameters related to the flow-meter which is connected in series with the pump. The calculated flow-rate (given in m3/min at pump inlet, absolute pressure and temperature) can then be plotted versus a correlation function that is the value of a specific combination of pump parameters. The linear equation that relates the pump flow and the correlation function is then determined. In the event that a CVS has a multiple speed drive, a calibration for each range used shall be performed.

2.2.2.   This calibration procedure is based on the measurement of the absolute values of the pump and flow-meter parameters that relate the flow rate at each point. Three conditions shall be maintained to ensure the accuracy and integrity of the calibration curve:

2.2.2.1.

The pump pressures shall be measured at tappings on the pump rather than at the external piping on the pump inlet and outlet. Pressure taps that are mounted at the top centre and bottom centre of the pump drive headplate are exposed to the actual pump cavity pressures, and therefore reflect the absolute pressure differentials;

2.2.2.2.

Temperature stability shall be maintained during the calibration. The laminar flow-meter is sensitive to inlet temperature oscillations which cause the data points to be scattered. Gradual changes of ± 1 K in temperature are acceptable as long as they occur over a period of several minutes; and

2.2.2.3.

All connections between the flow-meter and the CVS pump shall be free of any leakage.

2.2.3.   During an exhaust emission test, the measurement of these same pump parameters enables the user to calculate the flow rate from the calibration equation.

2.2.4.   Figure A4a.App2/8 of this appendix shows one possible test set-up. Variations are permissible, provided that the Technical Service approves them as being of comparable accuracy. If the set-up shown in Figure A4a.App2/8 is used, the following data shall be found within the limits of precision given:

Barometric pressure (corrected) (Pb)

2.2.5.   After the system has been connected as shown in Figure A4a.App2/8, set the variable restrictor in the wide-open position and run the CVS pump for 20 minutes before starting the calibration.

2.2.6.   Reset the restrictor valve to a more restricted condition in an increment of pump inlet depression (about 1 kPa) that will yield a minimum of six data points for the total calibration. Allow the system to stabilize for three minutes and repeat the data acquisition.

2.2.7.   The air flow rate (Qs) at each test point is calculated in standard m3/min from the flow-meter data using the manufacturer's prescribed method.

2.2.8.   The air flow-rate is then converted to pump flow (V0) in m3/rev at absolute pump inlet temperature and pressure.

Formula

Where:

V0

pump flow rate at Tp and Pp (m3/rev),

Pp

=

2.2.9.   To compensate for the interaction of pump speed, pressure variations at the pump and the pump slip rate, the correlation function (x0) between the pump speed (n), the pressure differential from pump inlet to pump outlet and the absolute pump outlet pressure is then calculated as follows:
