ANNEXES
Annex 1 – Communication Concerning the Approval (or Refusal or Withdrawal of Approval or
Production Definitely Discontinued) of a Vehicle Type with Regard to its Equipment With
Temporary-use Unit, Pursuant to Regulation No. 64.
Annex 2 – Arrangements of Approval Marks
Annex 3 – Braking and Deviation test for Vehicles Fitted With Temporary-use Spare Units

2.8.2. "Temporary-use spare unit" is a unit that differs from the standard units of the vehicle type
with regard to their principal characteristics (e.g. their size designation, functional
dimensions, conditions of use or structure). It is intended for temporary use under restricted
conditions as specified in Paragraph 5. Temporary-use spare units may be of the following
categories:
2.8.2.1. Category 1
2.8.2.2. Category 2
2.8.2.3. Category 3
2.8.2.4. Category 4
A unit consisting of a wheel which conforms to a wheel of a standard unit and of a tyre
which has principal characteristics (e.g. dimensions, structure) different from a standard
tyre; the unit is intended to be carried on the vehicle, the tyre inflated to the pressure
specified for temporary use;
A unit consisting of a wheel and tyre both having principal characteristics different from a
standard unit and intended to be carried on the vehicle with tyre inflated to the pressure
specified for temporary use;
A unit consisting of a wheel which conforms to a wheel of a standard unit and a tyre having
principal characteristics different from a standard unit and intended to be carried on the
vehicle with the tyre folded and not inflated;
A unit consisting of a wheel and tyre both having principal characteristics different from a
standard unit and intended to be carried on the vehicle with the tyre folded and not inflated;
2.9. "Maximum mass" means the maximum value of the vehicle stated by the manufacturer to
be technically permissible (this mass may be higher than the "permissible maximum mass"
laid down by the national administration);
2.10. "Maximum axle load" means the maximum value, as indicated by the manufacturer, of the
total vertical force between the contact surfaces of the tyres or tracks of one axle and the
ground and resulting from the part of the vehicle mass supported by that axle; this load may
be higher than the "authorised axle load" laid down by the national administration. The sum
of the axle loads may be greater than the value corresponding to the total mass of the
vehicle;
2.11. "Functional dimensions" are dimensions derived from the size designation of the wheels
and/or tyres (e.g. diameter, width, aspect ratio) and from the mounting of the unit to the
vehicle (e.g. wheel offset).
3. APPLICATION FOR APPROVAL
3.1. The application for approval of a vehicle type with regard to its equipment with a
temporary-use spare unit shall be submitted by the vehicle manufacturer or by his duly
accredited representative;
3.2. It shall be accompanied, in triplicate, by a description of the vehicle type with regard to the
items specified in Annex 1 to this Regulation;

5. SPECIFICATIONS AND TESTS
5.1. General
5.5.1. Tyres intended for use as part of temporary-use spare units shall meet the requirements of
Regulation No. 30.
5.1.2. For vehicles having at least four wheels, the load capacity of the temporary-use spare unit
shall be at least equal to one half of the highest of the maximum axle loads of the vehicle; if
its use is restricted to a specific axle mentioned in the instructions in Paragraph 6 below, its
load capacity shall be at least equal to one half of the maximum load of that axle.
5.1.3. The design speed of the temporary spare unit shall be at least 120 km/h.
5.1.4. The temporary-use spare unit shall exhibit the following characteristics:
5.1.4.1. A maximum speed warning symbol shall be permanently displayed on the outer face of the
wheel in a prominent position and in accordance with the diagram below:
Scale – full size (1:1)
5.1.4.2. When mounted to the vehicle for temporary use the outward facing surface of the wheel
and/or tyre shall exhibit a distinctive colour or colour pattern which is quite clearly different
from the colour(s) of the standard units. If it is possible to attach a wheel cover to the
temporary-use spare unit, the distinctive colour or colour pattern shall not be obscured by
this wheel cover.
5.2. Braking Test
5.2.1. Vehicles intended to be equipped with temporary-use spare units shall meet the
requirements of Annex 3 to this Regulation.

8.3. The holder of the approval shall in particular:
8.3.1. Ensure that procedures exist for the effective control of the quality of products;
8.3.2. Have access to the control equipment necessary for checking conformity to each
type-approved;
8.3.3. Ensure that data of test results are recorded and that the annexed documents remain
available for a period to be determined in agreement with the administrative services;
8.3.4. Analyse the results of each type of test, in order to verify and ensure the consistency of the
product characteristics, allowing for the variations in industrial production;
8.3.5. Ensure that for each category of temporary-use spare unit intended for use on a given
vehicle type, a vehicle of such type bearing the approval mark of this Regulation shall
periodically be taken from series production and subjected to the test prescribed in Annex 3
to this Regulation;
8.3.6. Ensure that any samples or test pieces giving evidence of non-conformity with the type of
test considered shall rise to another sampling and another test. All the necessary steps
shall be taken to re-establish the conformity of the corresponding production.
8.4. The competent authority which has granted type-approval may at any time verify the
conformity control methods applied to each production unit.
8.4.1. At every inspection, the test books and production survey records shall be presented to the
visiting inspector.
8.4.2. The inspector may take samples at random to be tested in the manufacturer laboratory.
The minimum number of samples may be determined according to the results of the
manufacturer own checks.
8.4.3. When the quality level appears unsatisfactory or when its seems necessary to check the
validity of the tests carried out under Paragraph 8.4.2, the inspector shall take samples to be
sent to the technical service which conducted the type-approval tests.
8.4.4. The competent authority may carry out any test prescribed in this Regulation.
8.4.5. The normal frequency of inspections authorised by the competent authority shall not be less
than one per year. If unsatisfactory results are found during one of these visits, this
frequency may be increased and the competent authority shall ensure that all necessary
steps are taken to restore conformity of production without delay.
9. PENALTIES FOR NON-CONFORMITY OF PRODUCTION
9.1. The approval granted in respect of a vehicle type pursuant to this Regulation may be
withdrawn if the requirements laid down in Paragraph 8.1. above are not complied with, or if
the temporary-use spare unit(s) has (have) failed to pass the checks provided for in
Paragraph 8.3 above.
9.2. If a Party to the Agreement which applies this Regulation withdraws an approval it has
previously granted, it shall forthwith so notify the other Contracting Parties applying this
Regulation, by means of a copy of the approval form bearing at the end, in large letters, the
signed and dated annotation "APPROVAL WITHDRAWN".
