Draft Commission Implementing Regulation laying down rules for the application of Regulation (EU) 2019/2144 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards uniform procedures and technical specifications for the type-approval of vehicles, and of systems, components and separate technical units intended for such vehicles, as regards their general construction characteristics and safety (15 page(s), in English; 86 page(s), in English; 147 page(s), in English)

The draft implementing act concerns administrative provisions and technical requirements as regards vehicle systems and components, such as demist/defrost, spray-suppression systems, gear shift indicator, wheel guards, etc., which are currently regulated only at EU level and no world harmonised standards exist at UNECE level. The draft carries over the existing provisions of regulatory acts that are repealed as of 6 July 2022. The new elements in the draft are the introduction of a check digit in the composition of the vehicle identification number and the harmonisation of the space for the front registration plates.
