Service and maintenance

This LAP examines:
• The differences in the roadworthiness inspection, service and maintenance (process and requirements) for hydrogen L category vehicles compared to conventional vehicles,
• The responsible authorities/independent bodies to carry out technical inspections
• The requirements to operate a testing centre/service and maintenance company for hydrogen vehicles;
 
Is there a difference in the service and maintenance inspection (process and requirement) for a hydrogen vehicle compared to a conventional vehicle?
a - motorcycles (and bikes)
b - quadricycles If yes, please specify, e.g. what are the specific maintenance needs and service requirements for hydrogen vehicles?
Which vehicles are subject to technical inspections (roadworthiness tests)?
Is there a framework and if yes, what are the requirements to operate a testing, inspection and certification (service and maintenance) company for hydrogen vehicles? a) technical i. motorcycles (and bikes) ii. quadricycles b) legislative / certification i. motorcycles (and bikes) ii. quadricycles
Which are the responsible authorities/independent bodies to carry out technical inspections?
a - motorcycles (and bikes)
b - quadricycles
Is it a barrier? Yes
Type of Barrier Regulatory gap
Assessment Severity
1
Assessment The existence of some specific rules described by the regulation for the regular inspection of 2 or 3 wheels motorcycles and quadricycles will give more assurance for the drivers, especially for the safety aspects related to the on–board H2 distribution. As there is no specific regulation for the inspection and technical control of motorcycles and quadricycles during their lifetime it creates a great “uncertainity” for the users of such vehicles. The inspection procedure will probably focus on the onboard equipment involved and related to the safety of the vehicle on the road.
