The draft also contains the provisions defining a process for dealing with a technical failure of a charging station/point, as well as the manner in which the installation must be protected against mechanical damage. Furthermore, it has been noted that a charging station/point must be located outside of an explosion-risk area and that any inspection, maintenance, repair and modernisation works must be documented in such a way as to confirm their course. Moreover, technical requirements have been clarified for output sockets and vehicle connectors for publicly available charging stations, and the content of the equipment’s service manual has been determined.
