Defines general criteria to demonstrate by testing that newly constructed complete railway vehicles conform with standards or other normative documents.

This European Standard specifies general criteria to demonstrate by testing that newly constructed complete railway vehicles conform with standards or other normative documents. This standard is intended to be used as technical instructions for the processing of tests which may be needed for demonstration of certain technical requirements where they are relevant. This standard is not intended to be used as a list of approval requirements without consideration of aforementioned technical requirements. This standard, as a whole or in part, applies to all railway vehicles except special purpose vehicles such as track-laying machines, ballast cleaners and personnel carriers. The extent of application of the standard for particular vehicles will be specifically mentioned in the contract. NOTE 1 The parts of the standard which are applicable will depend on the type of vehicle (e.g. passenger, freight, powered, trailer, etc.). NOTE 2 The scope of this standard excludes railbound and road/rail vehicles for construction and maintenance of railway infrastructure. NOTE 3 This standard does not deal with tests carried out on components or equipment before fitting to the vehicle. In so far as this standard is applicable it may be used for the following: - generator sets mounted on a vehicle provided for auxiliary purposes; - the electrical transmission used on trolley buses or similar vehicles; - control and auxiliary equipment of vehicles with non-electrical propulsion systems; - vehicles guided, supported or electrically propelled by systems which do not use the adhesion between wheel and rail.
