5.1.1.3.2. A control device to facilitate the disconnecting and the reconnecting functions of the switch
shall be installed in the driver’s cab. It shall be readily accessible to the driver and
distinctively marked. It shall be protected against inadvertent operation by either adding a
protective cover, by using a dual movement control device, or by other suitable means.
Additional control devices may be installed provided they are distinctively marked and
protected against inadvertent operation. If the control device(s) are electrically operated, the
circuits of the control device(s) are subject to the requirements of Paragraph 5.1.1.5.
5.1.1.3.3. The switch shall have a casing with protection degree IP65 in accordance with
IEC Standard 60529.
5.1.1.3.4. The cable connections on the battery master switch shall have a protection degree IP54.
However, this does not apply if these connections are contained in a housing which may be
the battery box. In this case it is sufficient to insulate the connections against short circuits,
for example with a rubber cap.
5.1.1.4. Batteries
The battery terminals shall be electrically insulated or covered by the insulating battery box
cover. If the batteries are not located under the engine bonnet, they shall be fitted in a
vented box.
5.1.1.5. Permanently Energized Circuits
5.1.1.5.1. Those parts of the electrical installation, including the leads which shall remain energized
when the battery master-switch is open, shall be suitable for use in hazardous areas. Such
equipment shall meet the appropriate requirements of IEC 60079 , Parts 0 and 14 and the
additional requirements applicable from IEC 60079, Parts 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 11, 15 or 18
For the application of IEC 60079 Part 14, the following classification shall be used:
Permanently energized electrical equipment including the leads that are not subject to
Paragraphs 5.1.1.3. and 5.1.1.4. shall meet the requirements for Zone 1 for electrical
equipment in general or meet the requirements for Zone 2 for electrical equipment situated
in the driver’s cab. The requirements for explosion group IIC, temperature Class T6, shall be
met.
The supply leads for permanently energized equipment shall either comply with the
provisions of IEC 60079, Part 7 ("Increased safety") and be protected by a fuse or automatic
circuit breaker placed as close to the source of power as practicable or, in the case of
"intrinsically safe equipment", they shall be protected by a safety barrier placed as close to
the source of power as practicable.
5.1.1.5.2. Bypass connections to the battery master switch for electrical equipment which must remain
energized when the battery master switch is open shall be protected against overheating by
suitable means, such as a fuse, a circuit breaker or a safety barrier (current limiter).
The requirements of IEC 60079 Part 14 do not take precedence over the requirements of this Regulation.

5.1.1.6.2. Lighting
Lamps with a screw cap shall not be used.
5.1.1.6.3. Electrical Connections
Electrical connections between motor vehicles and trailers shall have a protection
degree IP54 in accordance with IEC Standard 60529 and be designed to prevent accidental
disconnection. Connectors shall be in conformity with ISO 25981:2008, ISO 12098:2004,
ISO 7638:2003 and EN 15207:2006, as appropriate.
5.1.2. Prevention of Fire Risks
5.1.2.1. General Provisions
5.1.2.2. Vehicle Cab
The following technical provisions shall apply in accordance with the table of Paragraph 5.1.
Unless the driver’s cab is made of materials which are not readily flammable, a shield made
of metal or other suitable material of the same width as the tank shall be fitted at the rear of
the cab. Any windows in the rear of the cab or in the shield shall be hermetically closed and
made of fire resistant safety glass with fire resistant frames. Furthermore, there shall be a
clear space of not less than 15 cm between the tank and the cab or the shield.
ISO 4009, referred to in this standard, need not be applied.

5.1.4. Speed Limitation Device
Power driven vehicles of Categories N and N shall be equipped with a speed limitation
device according to the technical requirements of Regulation No. 89. The device shall be set
in such a way that the speed cannot exceed 90 km/h, bearing in mind the technological
tolerance of the device.
5.1.5. Coupling Devices for Trailer
Coupling devices for trailers shall comply with the technical requirements of
Regulation No. 55.
6. MODIFICATION OF THE VEHICLE TYPE AND EXTENSION OF APPROVAL
6.1. Every modification of the vehicle type shall be notified to the Type Approval Authority which
approved the vehicle type. The department may then either:
6.1.1. Consider that the modifications made are unlikely to have an appreciable adverse effect and
that in any case the vehicle still complies with the requirements, or
6.1.2. Require a further test report from the technical service responsible for conducting the tests.
6.2. Confirmation or refusal of approval, specifying the alteration, shall be communicated by the
procedure specified in Paragraph 4.3. to the Contracting Parties.
6.3. The Competent Authority issuing an extension of approval shall assign a series number to
each communication form drawn up for such an extension and inform thereof the other
Parties by means of a communication form conforming to the model in Annex 1 to this
Regulation.
7. Conformity of Production
The conformity of production procedures shall comply with those set out in the Agreement,
Appendix 2 (E/ECE/324-E/ECE/TRANS/505/Rev.2), with the following requirements:
7.1. Vehicles approved to this Regulation shall be so manufactured as to conform to the type
approved by meeting the requirements set forth in Paragraph 5. above.
7.2. The Competent Authority which has granted type-approval may at any time verify the
conformity control methods applicable to each production facility. The normal frequency of
these verifications shall be once per two years.
8. PENALTIES FOR NON-CONFORMITY OF PRODUCTION
8.1. The approval granted in respect of a vehicle type pursuant to this Regulation may be
withdrawn if the requirement laid down in Paragraph 7. above is not complied with.
8.2. If a Contracting Party to the Agreement applying this Regulation withdraws an approval it
has previously granted, it shall forthwith notify the other Contracting Parties applying this
Regulation, by means of a communication form conforming to the model in Annex 1 to this
Regulation.
