Requirements for battery-vehicles and MEGCs which are designed, constructed and tested according to referenced standards

NOTE: Persons or bodies identified in standards as having responsibilities in accordance with ADR
shall meet the requirements of ADR.
Type approval certificates shall be issued in accordance with 1.8.7. The standard referenced in the
table below shall be applied for the issue of type approvals as indicated in column (4) to meet the
requirements of Chapter 6.8 referred to in column (3). The standards shall be applied in accordance
 
with 1.1.5. Column (5) gives the latest date when existing type approvals shall be withdrawn
according to 1.8.7.2.4; if no date is shown the type approval remains valid until it expires.
Since 1 January 2009 the use of the referenced standards has been mandatory. Exceptions are dealt
with in 6.8.3.7
If more than one standard is referenced for the application of the same requirements, only one of them
shall be applied, but in full unless otherwise specified in the table below.
The scope of application of each standard is defined in the scope clause of the standard unless

Requirements for battery-vehicles and MEGCs which are not designed, constructed and tested according to referenced standards

To reflect scientific and technical progress or where no standard is referenced in 6.8.3.6 or to deal
with specific aspects not addressed in a standard referenced in 6.8.3.6, the competent authority may
recognize the use of a technical code providing the same level of safety. Battery-vehicles and MEGCs
shall, however, comply with the minimum requirements of 6.8.3.
In the type approval the issuing body shall specify the procedure for periodic inspections if the
standards referenced in 6.2.2, 6.2.4 or 6.8.2.6 are not applicable or shall not be applied.
The competent authority shall transmit to the secretariat of UNECE a list of the technical codes that it
recognises. The list should include the following details: name and date of the code, purpose of the
code and details of where it may be obtained. The secretariat shall make this information publicly
available on its website.
A standard which has been adopted for reference in a future edition of the ADR may be approved by
the competent authority for use without notifying the UNECE secretariat.
