EU – R(EU) 2022/545 - Event Data Recorder - New Regulation



 EU – R(EU) 2022/545 - Event Data Recorder - New Regulation


Has been published in the Official Journal of the European Union the new Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2022/545 supplementing Regulation (EU) 2019/2144 of the European Parliament and of the Council by laying down detailed rules concerning the specific test procedures and technical requirements for the type-approval of motor vehicles with regard to their event data recorder and for the type-approval of those systems as separate technical units and amending Annex II to that Regulation.

The Act establishes technical requirements and testing procedures for vehicle type-approval with regard to EDR, as well as type-approval of EDR as a separate technical unit (STU). For type-approval of a vehicle type, the Act refers to the provisions of the UN Regulation No 160, making its requirements applicable under the General Vehicle Safety Regulation (GSR). These requirements concern data elements that EDR must record, the format of these data, requirements for data capture (including those on recording and overwriting of data, on-board storing and the locking of certain data records) and requirements for crash test performance and survivability.

In addition to the requirements of UN Regulation 160, the Act lays down additional requirements concerning data retrieval, privacy and security of data.

This Regulation shall apply to vehicle categories M1 and N1, as defined in Article 4 of Regulation (EU) 2018/858 of the European Parliament and of the Council.

This Regulation shall enter into force on 26 April 2022, the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union. It shall apply as from 6 July 2022.

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