Alarm systems will soon be mandatory on all vehicles in the EAEU

On August 23, 2021, the decision of the Management Board of the Eurasian Economic Union No. 101 on the adoption of amendments to the decision on the adoption of the technical regulation of the Union "On the safety of wheeled vehicles" was published. The regulations in this document apply, among other things, to in-vehicle alarm systems.

 Until December 31, 2021, some vehicles may not have alarm systems

The discussed changes provide for supplementing the above-mentioned decision with point 3.2.5, according to which until 31 December 2021 it is permissible not to equip the vehicles of categories M1 - M3 and N1 - N3 produced in the customs territory of the Eurasian Economic Union with alarm systems. The only exceptions are vehicles intended for the transport of dangerous goods and for the transport of children.

Obligation to install alarm systems from June 30, 2022

According to the adopted schedule, vehicles must be retrofitted with an alarm system or device by June 30, 2022 at the latest. This responsibility rests entirely with the vehicle or chassis manufacturer. The sale of vehicles admitted to trading from the date of entry into force of the amendments without an alarm device or system may only take place if the obligation to inform the customer about the need for additional equipment and to indicate the relevant information in the electronic vehicle passport is fulfilled.

Information on alarm systems in electronic passports

It should be remembered that for the listed vehicles, issued in accordance with the decision without an alarm system in electronic passports in the subsection "Other information", it is necessary to indicate the details of the legal basis, i.e. Decision No. 101 of August 17, 2021. The document will only apply to legal relationships that have arisen from August 17, 2021.
