EXPLANATORY NOTE

EXPLANATORY NOTE (This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations implement Commission Directive 2001/63/EC which amends Annexes III and IV of European Parliament and Council Directive 97/68/EC. The latter Directive makes provision to reduce emissions from internal combustion engines for use in machinery not intended to be used on the road, such as forestry equipment and fork-lift trucks. It specifies production assessments and tests relating to such internal combustion engines. The Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) Regulation 96 has a similar scope, but small adjustments in the technical requirement were required in order to align the Directive with the Regulation.

Regulation 2 therefore amends the definition of Directive 97/68/EC set out in Regulation 2(1)(a) of SI 1999/1053 so as to include the amending Directive (2001/63/EC).

Regulation 2(2) makes a minor amendment to the definition of “non-road mobile machinery” specified in Regulation 2(1)(c) of SI 1999/1053.

The Schedules to SI 1999/1053 set out verbatim each Annex to Directive 97/68/EC. Regulation 2(3) substitutes references to the Annexes of the Directive for references to the Schedules of the Regulations.

Regulation 3 revokes the Schedules to SI 1999/1053 and, together with the effect of Regulation 2(3), replaces all references to any Schedule in those Regulations with references to the relevant Annex of the Directive. As the Directive continues to be amended from time to time, so the material in the relevant Annex will take effect under amending Regulations.

This Explanatory Note incorporates the Transposition Note that would otherwise have been provided separately.

Copies of the Directive and ECE Regulations relevant to these Regulations can be obtained from the Stationery Office.
