EGMF co-signs a joint position on road circulation requirements for mobile machinery

EGMF, as a participating association in the Industry Task Force (ITF) on Road Circulation, published a common position paper which describes the industry’s main suggestions for ensuring the harmonisation of road circulation requirements for mobile machinery, in view of a future legislative proposal on this matter. One main objective emphasised in the paper is the need for a single approval for road circulation of mobile machinery in all EU Member States, without additional national technical requirements, to put an end to multiple testing and third party certifications which currently bring about unnecessary costs and administrative burdens. The position paper also focuses on a proposal for an approval procedure which considers four columns containing distinct procedures of verification of compliance with technical requirements, for different safety aspects relevant to mobile machinery.
