COMMISSION DIRECTIVE 97/20/EC of 18 April 1997

adapting to technical progress Council Directive
72/306/EEC

on the approximation of the laws of the Member States
relating to the measures to be taken against the emission of pollutants from
diesel engines for use in vehicles (Text with EEA relevance)

 

 

 

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

 

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European
Community,

 

Having regard to Council Directive 72/306/EEC of 2 August
1972 on

the approximation of the laws of the Member States
relating to the

measures to be taken against the emission of pollutants
from diesel

engines for use in vehicles (1), as last amended by
Commission

Directive 89/491/EEC (2), and in particular Article 4
thereof,

 

Whereas Directive 72/306/EEC is one of the separate
directives in

the EC type-approval procedure established by Council
Directive

70/156/EEC of 6 February 1970 on the approximation of the
laws of

Member States relating to the type-approval of motor
vehicles and

their trailers (3), as last amended by Directive 96/79/EC
of the

European Parliament and of the Council (4); whereas,
consequently, the

provisions laid down in Directive 70/156/EEC relating to
vehicle

systems, components and separate technical units apply to
Directive

72/306/EEC;

 

Whereas, in particular, pursuant to Articles 3 (4) and 4
(3) of

Directive 70/156/EEC, it is necessary that each separate
directive has

attached to it an information document incorporating the
relevant

items of Annex I to Directive 70/156/EEC and also a
type-approval

certificate based on Annex VI to Directive 70/156/EEC in
order that

type-approval may be computerized;

 

Whereas these amendments relate only to the
administrative

provisions contained in Directive 72/306/EEC, whereas it
is not

necessary therefore to invalidate existing approvals
pursuant to

Directive 72/306/EEC nor to prevent the registration,
sale and entry

into service of new vehicles covered by such approvals;

 

Whereas the measures provided for in this Directive are
in

accordance with the opinion of the Commitee for
Adaptation to

Technical Progress established by Directive 70/156/EEC,

 

HAS ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:

previously granted

pursuant to Directive 72/306/EEC nor prevent extensions
