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 Structural barrier
Assessment Severity
1
Assessment The lack of specific regulations fo technical inspections of some types of hydrogen motorcycles and quadricycles may restrict their deployment and increase the maintenance costs. It may create an uncertainty for the users and negatively affect their choice to purchase hydrogen vehicles. Therefore, specific testing methods and requirements for the inspections areas, equipment and staff with focus on specific hydrogen components on board and related to the hydrogen L category vehicles safety on the road have to be developed.
