3. APPLICATION FOR APPROVAL
3.1. The application for approval of a vehicle type with regard to a protective device to prevent its
unauthorised use shall be submitted by the vehicle manufacturer or by his duly accredited
representative.
3.2. It shall be accompanied by the undermentioned documents in triplicate and by the following
particulars:
3.2.1. a detailed description of the vehicle type with regard to the arrangement and design of the
vehicle component or components on which the protective device acts;
3.2.2. drawings, on an appropriate scale and in sufficient detail, of the protective device and of its
mountings on the vehicle;
3.2.3. a technical description of the device.
3.3. There shall be submitted to the technical service responsible for conducting the approval
tests:
3.3.1. a vehicle, representative of the vehicle type to be approved, if requested by the technical
service; and also
3.3.2. at the request of the technical service, such components of the vehicle as the service
deems essential for the checks prescribed in Paragraphs 5 and 6 of this Regulation.
4. APPROVAL
4.1. If the vehicle submitted for approval pursuant to this Regulation meets the requirements of
Paragraphs 5 and 6 below, approval of that vehicle type shall be granted.
4.2. An approval number shall be assigned to each type approved. Its first two digits (at present
00 for the Regulation in its original form) shall indicate the series of amendments
incorporating the most recent major technical amendments made to the Regulation at the
time of issue of the approval. The same Contracting Party may not assign the same
number either to the vehicle type equipped with another type of protective device or whose
protective device is mounted differently, or to another vehicle type.
4.3. Notice of approval or of refusal of approval of a vehicle type pursuant to this Regulation
shall be communicated to the Parties to the Agreement which apply this Regulation, by
means of a form conforming to the model in Annex 1 to this Regulation and of drawings of
the protective device and its mounting supplied by the applicant for approval, in a format not
exceeding A4 (210 x 297 mm) or folded to that format and on an appropriate scale.

5.2. The requirements of Paragraph 5.1. shall be met by the single application of one key.
5.3. The protective device referred to in Paragraph 5.1. above, and the vehicle components on
which it operates, shall be so designed, that it cannot rapidly and without attracting
attention, be opened, rendered ineffective, or destroyed by, for example, the use of
low-cost, easily-concealed tools, equipment or fabrications readily available to the public at
large.
5.4. The protective device shall be mounted on the vehicle as an item of original equipment
(i.e. equipment installed by the vehicle manufacturer prior to first retail sale). The lock shall
be securely assembled in the protective device. (If the lock can be extracted using the key
and after the cover or any other retention device has been removed, this is not in
contradiction with the requirement).
5.5. The key locking system shall provide at least 1 000 different key combinations or a number
equal to the total number of vehicles manufactured annually if less than 1 000. In vehicles
of one type the frequency of occurrence of each combination shall be roughly one per
1 000.
5.6. The key and lock shall not be visibly coded.
5.7. The lock shall be so designed, constructed and fitted that turning of the lock cylinder, when
in the locked position, with a torque of less than 0,245 mdaN is not possible with anything
other than the mating key, and
5.7.1. for lock cylinders with pin tumblers no more than two identical tumblers operating in the
same direction shall be positioned adjacent to each other, and in a lock there shall not be
more than 60% identical tumblers,
5.7.2. for lock cylinders with disc tumblers no more than two identical tumblers operating in the
same direction shall be positioned adjacent to each other, and in a lock there shall not be
more than 50% identical tumblers.
5.8. Protective devices shall be such as to exclude any risk, while the vehicle is in motion with
engine running, of accidental blockage likely to compromise safety in particular.
5.9. The protective device, if it is of Type 1, Type 2 or Type 3, shall, in its activated position, be
strong enough to withstand, without damage to the steering mechanism likely to
compromise safety, the application of a torque of 20 mdaN about the axis of the steering
shaft in both directions under static conditions.
5.10. The protective device, if it is of Type 1, Type 2 or Type 3, shall be so designed that the
steering can only be locked at an angle of at least 20° to the left and/or the right of the
straight ahead position.
6. PARTICULAR SPECIFICATIONS
6.1. In addition to the general specifications prescribed in Paragraph 5, the protective device
shall comply with the particular conditions prescribed below:
6.1.1. In the case of protective devices of Type 1 or Type 2, it shall only be possible to engage the
lock by means of a movement of the key, the handlebars being in the position appropriate
for the engagement of the bolt in the corresponding slot.

10. PRODUCTION DEFINITELY DISCONTINUED
If the holder of approval completely ceases to manufacture a type of vehicle approved in
accordance with this Regulation, he shall so inform the authority which granted the
approval. Upon receiving the relevant communication that authority shall inform thereof the
other Parties to the Agreement applying this Regulation by means of a copy of the approval
form bearing at the end, in large letters, the signed and dated annotation: "PRODUCTION
DISCONTINUED".
11. NAMES AND ADDRESSES OF TECHNICAL SERVICES RESPONSIBLE FOR
CONDUCTING APPROVAL TESTS, AND OF ADMINISTRATIVE DEPARTMENTS
The Parties to the Agreement applying this Regulation shall communicate to the United
Nations Secretariat the names and addresses of the technical services responsible for
conducting approval tests and of the administrative departments which grant approval and
to which forms certifying approval or refusal or withdrawal of approval, issued in other
countries, are to be sent.

ANNEX 3
TEST FOR WEAR IN TYPE 3 PROTECTIVE DEVICES
1. TEST EQUIPMENT
1.1. The test equipment shall consist of:
1.1.1. a fixture suitable for mounting the sample steering complete with the protective device
attached, as defined in Paragraph 2.3. of this Regulation;
1.1.2. a means for activating and de-activating the protective device which shall include the use of
the key;
1.1.3. a means for rotating the steering shaft relative to the protective device.
2. TEST METHOD
2.1. A sample of the steering complete with the protective device is attached to the fixture
referred to in Paragraph 1.1.1. above.
2.2. One cycle of the test procedure shall consist of the following operations:
2.2.1. Start Position
The protective device shall be de-activated and the steering shaft shall be rotated to a
position which prevents engagement of the protective device.
2.2.2. Set to Activate
2.2.3. Activated
The protective device shall be moved from the de-activated to the activated position, using
the key.
The steering shaft shall be rotated such that the torque on it, at the instant of engagement of
the protective device shall be 5,88 Nm ± 0,25.
2.2.4. De-activated
2.2.5. Return
The protective device shall be de-activated by the normal means, the torque being reduced
to zero to facilitate disengagement.
The steering shaft shall be rotated to a position which prevents engagement of the
protective device.
