Overview of Regulation VO (EU) No. 167/2013

Regulation VO (EU) No. 167/2013 regarding approval and market surveillance of agricultural and forestry vehicles already came into force in 2013. This is the Framework Regulation and is therefore only applicable in law following entry into force of the Delegated Regulations and the Implementing Regulation (see below).


The objective of the regulation is to promote the internal market.

By means of a harmonised type approval procedure and harmonisation of technical requirements for vehicles, systems, components and separate technical units, it is possible to offer and sell vehicles in the EU without further testing, examination or barriers. 


Transitional arrangements:

  • 01.01.2016: Mandatory for all new types
  • 01.01.2018: Mandatory for initial placing on the market
