The following comment is added after the table in the new version of the draft: The item and subject entries listed in the table above shall apply for the purpose of information to be provided in accordance with Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/683, Annex II, Part III from [OP please insert the date of entry into force of this Regulation] for new whole-vehicle type-approvals and from [OP please insert date of 24 months after the date of entry into force of this Regulation] for existing approvals.

Compliance with Regulation (EU) 2019/2144 is mandatory, however, a separate type-approval under that Regulation is not foreseen as it represents the collection of individual items.

The new version of the draft introduces the same items to all the tables, including small series.

For the list of Regulatory acts for EU type approval of fully automated vehicles produced in small series in some items the minimum speed for non-application is raised from 25 km/h to 30 km/h. Other small changes are introduced in this table.
