IRU Position on the roadworthiness testing of vehicles in the EU - 2012
In order to improve road safety and the environmental performance of vehicles, the IRU is convinced that all road transport vehicles must be correctly maintained and repaired. However, the IRU cannot accept a new roadworthiness package without a binding roadmap for more harmonisation, standardisation and a mutual recognition of roadworthiness certificates which should eventually lead to higher standards across the EU and to more benefits for transport operators in terms of incentives, reduction of costs and of the administrative burden, whilst at the same time avoiding that already existing high standards are jeopardised.
