Motor vehicles and their trailers: steering equipment (until 2014)

Document or Iniciative

Council Directive 70/311/EEC of 8 June 1970 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to the steering equipment for motor vehicles and their trailers [See amending acts].

Summary

“Steering equipment” means equipment used to alter the direction of movement of the vehicle.

No Member State may refuse to grant EC type approval or national type approval of a vehicle on grounds relating to its steering equipment, if this equipment satisfies the requirements set out in the Annex to the Directive.

Member States may not prohibit the sale, registration or entry into service of vehicles on grounds relating to the steering equipment if the vehicles comply with the requirements of Directive 70/311/EEC.

However, from 1 October 2000, Member States may no longer grant EC type-approval, and may refuse to grant national type-approval for any type of vehicle on grounds relating to the steering equipment if the requirements of Directive 70/311/EEC are not fulfilled.
