2.6. "Multi-stage built vehicle" means a vehicle resulting from a multi-stage construction process;
2.7. "Reuse" means any operation by which components of end-of life vehicles are used for the
same purpose for which they were conceived;
2.8. "Recycling" means the reprocessing in a production process of the waste materials for the
original purpose or for other purposes but excluding energy recovery;
2.9. "Energy recovery" means the use of combustible waste as a means to generate energy
through direct incineration with or without other waste but with recovery of the heat;
2.10. "Recovery" means reprocessing in a production process of the waste materials for the original
purpose or for other purposes, together with processing as a means of generating energy;
2.11. "Reusability" means the potential for reuse of component parts diverted from an end-of-life
vehicle;
2.12. "Recyclability" means the potential for recycling of component parts or materials diverted from
an end-of life vehicle;
2.13. "Recoverability" means the potential for recovery of component parts or materials diverted
from an end-of life vehicle;
2.14. "Recyclability rate of a vehicle (Rcyc)" means the percentage by mass of a new vehicle,
potentially able to be reused and recycled;
2.15. "Recoverability rate of a vehicle (Rcov)" means the percentage by mass of a new vehicle,
potentially able to be reused and recovered;
2.16. "Strategy" means a large-scale plan consisting of coordinated actions and technical measures
to be taken as regards dismantling, shredding or similar processes, recycling and recovery of
materials to ensure that the targeted recyclability and recoverability rates are attainable at the
time a vehicle is in its development phase;
2.17. "Mass of a vehicle in running order" means the mass of an unladen vehicle with bodywork,
and with coupling device in the case of a towing vehicle, or the mass of the chassis with cab if
the manufacturer does not fit the bodywork and/or coupling device, including coolant, oils, 90%
of fuel, 100% of other liquids except used waters, tools, spare wheel, excluding the driver
(75kg);
2.18. "Competent Authority" means an entity, e.g. a Technical Service or another existing body,
notified by a Contracting Party to carry out preliminary assessment of the manufacturer and to
issue a certificate of compliance, in accordance with the prescriptions of this Regulation. The
Type Approval Authority may be the competent authority provided its competence in this field is
properly documented (see in particular Paragraph 2. of Annex 5 to this Regulation).

5.4. The approval mark shall be placed on or close to the vehicle data plate affixed by the
Manufacturer.
5.5. Annex 4 to this Regulation gives examples of the arrangements of the approval mark.
6. PRELIMINARY ASSESSMENT OF THE MANUFACTURER REGARDING REUSABILITY,
RECYCLABILITY AND RECOVERABILITY
6.1. Contracting Parties shall not grant any type approval without first ensuring that the
manufacturer has put in place satisfactory arrangements and procedures, in accordance with
Paragraphs 3.1. of Annex 5 to this Regulation, to manage properly the reusability, recyclability
and recoverability aspects covered by this regulation.
6.2. Contracting Parties shall not grant any type approval without first ensuring that the
manufacturer has put in place satisfactory arrangements and procedures, in accordance with
