New circulars about homologation of heavy brake testers

On 19 and 21 September, the Ministry of Transport issued two very important circulars regarding the inspection of vehicles with a total mass in excess of 3.5 tons.
The first governs the technical specifications for the homologation of the test bench for roller cam brakes and the second gives the technical standards for adapting roller cam brake test benches currently in use and approved in accordance with circular 7690/699 of 16 December 1999. The circulars represent a long-awaited passage following Directive 2010/48 that adapts Directive 2009/40 to technological progress regarding the technical inspection of motor vehicles and their trailers. The documentation has been distributed to Aica members.
