Stylus and the future IVA

Post by Werner Van Loock »

here's a draft version of the IVA manual:

http://www.vosa.gov.uk/vosacorp/publica ... papers.htm

One thing that applies to us i think is:

Method of Inspection

This inspection applies to doors and to other aperture covers fitted to
the vehicle. Compliance may be demonstrated by submission of
documentary evidence or an inspection of the vehicle.
In the case of a motor caravan, ambulance or hearse with a
maximum mass equal to or exceeding 2500kg the requirements
according to the category of the base or incomplete vehicle or of the
corresponding N category vehicle based on maximum mass will
apply.
Note 1: A side-screen which may be mounted in a structure, and which
in either case is hinged to allow entry/ exit and which is permanently
secured to the vehicle (ie not detachable) is considered to be a door
and is subject to the requirements of this section.
Note 2: Doors designed to be easily attached to or removed from a
motor vehicle manufactured for operation without doors need only
comply with Standards 3
Note 3: Doors which do not give direct access to seats that are
designed for normal use while the vehicle is travelling on the road, ie
where the longitudinal plane of the most inboard point of the door is
more than 300mm from the longitudinal plane of the nearest edge of the
seat are exempt from this requirement.
Note 4: Any power operated door where force applied by the power
actuator is sufficient to keep the door completely closed even when any
load is applied is exempt from this requirement.

Required Standard

1. All driver and passenger doors fitted to the sides of the vehicle must have a
latch mechanism with both intermediate and fully latched positions.
Alternatively, doors must be fitted with a safety bolt and an audible warning
device, which activates when the vehicle is being driven if the bolt is not in
the “secured” position (see Note 4).
2. All driver and passenger hinged doors must have a latch mechanism that will
withstand a load of 30kgf in both intermediate and fully latched positions,
unless fitted with a safety bolt and audible warning device where it will only
need to meet this requirement in the secured (locked) position (see Note 3
and 4).
3. All driver and passenger doors fitted to the sides of the vehicle which are
hinged at the top or rear of the vehicle must be
a. fitted with a device that automatically moves the door to the closed or
intermediate latched position if unlatched when the vehicle is moving
forward,
or
b. fitted with a safety bolt and an audible warning device, that activates
when the vehicle is being driven if the bolt is not in the “secured”
position.

I don't think that's much different to the SVA requirements.
There has been a lot of rubish spouted about the IVA but when you read through the information there isn't much changed, the only thing I have come across so far is that all cars must have a reverse which wasn't ptrviously the case.
