32 Sample Australian Design Rules - ADR - compliance plates

A compliance plate is a small metal plate (typically about 100mm x 50mm, smaller for motorcycles), which is attached to the vehicle. A compliance plate identifies the vehicle by make, model, date of manufacture and Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)/chassis number. Compliance Plates are permanently affixed to vehicles and usually are fitted in vehicle engine bays, on vehicle door pillars or near the passenger side footwell. On motorcycles they are usually attached to steering heads.

Compliance plates are usually silver although other colours are sometimes used. However, certain colours are reserved for particular purposes.

  • A red compliance plate is for a partially completed vehicle (eg chassis-cab)
  • A green compliance plate is for a vehicle produced in low volume
  • A blue compliance plate is for low volume trailer
  • A yellow compliance plate is for a personally imported vehicle.

Although information on a compliance plate may change from time to time, there is one feature which distinguishes it from other plates. That is a statement to the effect that the plate is affixed with the approval of the “Australian Motor Vehicle Certification Board” (AMVCB) or alternatively that the vehicle is “Manufactured to Comply with the Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989”.

43 Exhaust emissions standards compliance information for heavy vehicles

Information regarding compliance with approved exhaust emissions standards for heavy motor vehicles imported to New Zealand has been supplied by local representatives of the following manufacturers:

  • Hino
  • International
  • Iveco
  • Isuzu
  • MAN
  • Western Star and Autocar
  • Nissan Diesel

The following table summarises the relevant information supplied by each manufacturer’s representative regarding compliance with approved exhaust emissions standards.

Entry certifiers will not be required to obtain an individual statement of compliance for these vehicles.

Please note that some manufacturers (eg Mitsubishi, Ford, Nissan) are notifying the NZTA (through the VIN direct system) of the vehicle emission standards for the models of heavy vehicles that they are importing into New Zealand.

Therefore, if a new heavy vehicle is presented for certification and the emission code fields in LANDATA are already populated, additional documentation to cover the exhaust emission requirements is not needed.

61 HVSC Memo 59: HV power pack upgrades to meet emissions requirements

Memo

For Heavy Vehicle Specialist Certifiers

To: Heavy Vehicle Specialist Certifiers No. 59

From: Steve Bullôt

Date: 4 May 2009

Subject: HV power pack upgrades to meet emissions requirements

Following the introduction of the Land Transport Rule: Vehicle Exhaust Emissions 2007 (33001/2), it has been determined that a heavy vehicle may be repowered to meet the requirements of the Rule.

Any repower will need to meet the following conditions:

  • The repower must meet the applicable emission standard.
  • The repower and its installation must be to the specifications and instructions of the manufacturer of the powerpack for the application or be an alternative approved by the vehicle manufacturer.
  • Powerpack means; the engine, its radiator/cooling pack, induction and exhaust systems, including layout, and any accessories or emissions control equipment, such as add blue, specified by the manufacturer.
  • Where final drive or other installation conditions are specified by the manufacturer they must be met and noted in the final certification.
  • The repower is to be certified, by a HVS Certifying Engineer with the Chassis (HVEC) category, That it meets all the above requirements. Supporting documentation from the powerpack or vehicle manufacturer must be available.

Note: In the situation where an engine or powerpack is replaced by a unit by the same manufacturer, part number, specification and emission standard then it is considered a repair and not a modification and is not affected by the requirements of the Rule.

74 Torque wrenches

Torque wrenches are not required to undergo annual calibration. They must always be in an undamaged condition and fit for purpose.

Torque wrenches are required to be stored in a safe environment when not in use that will minimise the likelihood of damage. A damaged torque wrench must be taken out of use immediately and either sent for repair and calibration, or a new one purchased. A new torque wrench must have a calibration certificate.

Check visually for condition before use and a thorough check to be carried out every 12 months as per the procedure below.
