EU – Functional requirements for market surveillance of vehicles, systems, components and separate technical units



 EU – determination of the CO2 emissions and fuel consumption of medium and large lorries and large busses - Proposal for a New Regulation


Has been published the new Commission Implementing R(EU) 2022/163 laying down rules on the application of R(EU) 2018/858 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards functional requirements for market surveillance of vehicles, systems, components and separate technical units.

The measures to be taken under the provisions of Articles 8(15), 9(5) and 13(10) of R(EU) 2018/858 concern the compliance verification of vehicles, systems, components and separate technical units. Those measures are substantively linked by their subject matter and the context in which they are to apply. It is therefore appropriate to adopt this Regulation on the basis of all three provisions in order to achieve consistent compliance verification.

The implementing act contains the following articles:

  • Criteria for establishing the adequate scale of the compliance verification checks;
  • Format of the overview of planned market surveillance checks;
  • Format of the report of the findings following compliance verification checks;
  • Data to be made available by manufacturers to the Commission for the purpose of compliance verification;
  • Data to be made available by manufacturers to third parties for the purpose of testing for possible non-compliance;
  • Requirements for third parties to demonstrate their legitimate interest and their recourse to adequate testing facilities.

This Regulation entered into force on 28 February 2022, the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.


Please, if you have any doubt or question, do not hesitate to contact us.


  Best regards,
