Term/Symbol

Explanation

 

E Mark

A complete ‘E mark’ as shown in the applicable Economic Commission of Europe (ECE) Regulation on each vehicle or component confirming compliance with that Regulation, provided the vehicle has not been modified from its ‘E Mark’ specification.

 

CRN

Use of a component for which a Component Reference Number (CRN) has been issued by the Administrator for ADR compliance evidence, and installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and conditions of the CRN.

 

Full Volume Vehicle

The use of a component or system shown to be identical to that on a vehicle certified in full volume in Australia in the same vehicle category or a different vehicle category provided their ADR compliance requirements were the same.  Identification of the vehicle category, make, model and identification plate approval number of that vehicle, and the component or system, must be provided.  The component or system must be in an acceptable condition and the ADR related installation and operational requirements must be shown to be met.  Part numbers in spare parts catalogues would be suitable for identification purposes.

 

Japanese origin

For a vehicle first supplied to the market in Japan, information to confirm that the component or system is of the same specification as those on the vehicle when originally supplied to the Japanese market.  Part numbers in spare parts catalogues would be suitable for this purpose.

For a vehicle first supplied to the market other than in Japan, written advice from the RVCS registered delegate of the specific component licensee or full volume vehicle licensee for the same make of vehicle providing;

(a)      the make, model and type of component or category of vehicle

(b)       part number of the component or identification number of the vehicle as marked on the component or vehicle

confirming that both the component or vehicle in question and the component or vehicle supplied to the market in Japan are identical.

Unless otherwise specified, this applies to vehicles first marketed in Japan on or after the date the ADR was applicable for vehicles first marketed in Australia.

 

USA and Canadian origin

For a vehicle first supplied to the market in the USA or Canada, information to confirm that the component or system is of the same specification as those on the vehicle when originally supplied to the USA or Canadian market.  Part numbers in spare parts catalogues would be suitable for this purpose.

For a vehicle first supplied to the market other than in the USA or Canada, written advice from the RVCS registered delegate of the specific component licensee or full volume vehicle licensee for the same make of vehicle providing;

(a)   the make, model and type of component or category of vehicle

(b)   part number of the component or identification number of the vehicle as marked on the component or vehicle

confirming that both the component or vehicle in question and the component or vehicle supplied to the market in the USA or Canada are identical.

Unless otherwise specified, this applies to vehicles first marketed in the USA or Canada on or after the date the ADR was applicable for vehicles first marketed in Australia.

Analysis

A logical justification of compliance with all requirements of an ADR.  This method may include a combination of the acceptable evidence types for the particular ADR, with a partial test or stress analysis to demonstrate compliance with one of the additional requirements.  Analysis may also include a comparison of standards applicable to the vehicle with the requirements of the ADR.

To demonstrate compliance with the strength requirements of the ADR, physical observations and measurements of the main parts of each component or assembly, and a comprehensive stress analysis must be provided. The calculations must have proper regard to the interaction and combination of shear and bending forces.  Overly simplistic assumptions about the behaviour of sheet metal must be avoided where thin metal sections are involved in combination with high local stresses.  To demonstrate compliance with location or visibility requirements of the ADR, physical observations, measurements and engineering drawings in sufficient detail must be provided, with the relevant information clearly presented.  The applicable labelling, marking and operational requirements of the ADR must be recognised for confirmation of compliance on a vehicle by vehicle basis.

Other specified

As specified under individual acceptable evidence requirements.

Full evidence

Complete evidence of compliance with all the requirements of the ADR.

P

Evidence type acceptable.

P+[  ]

Additional Requirements or Exemptions

For a Sample Vehicle:

1.  If any seatbelt anchorages are located on a seat, then the seat or vehicle must have an E Mark to R14/02 (or R14/01 if ADR 3/00 is applicable) or the seat and anchorages must withstand a load of Twenty times the weight of the entire ‘Seat’ in a ‘Forward’ longitudinal direction simultaneously with the total load imposed on the ‘Seat’ by simultaneous application of loads required for seat-belt ‘Anchorages’ specified in ADR 5/... "Anchorages for Seat Belts and Child Restraints". the ‘Seat’ shall be located in the full ‘Forward’ and upward design position. (Clause 5.5.1.1 ADR 3/02)

     The Seat and anchorages must also withstand an additional test, with the seat belt ‘Anchorages’ load applied, with the ‘Seat’ in the rearmost position to demonstrate compliance with the Australian Design Rule for "Anchorages for Seat Belts and Child Restraints". (Clause 5.5.1.1.1 ADR 3/02)

2.  If any child restraint anchorage is in or on the seat back, or located in the vehicle body structure, more than 100 mm below the top of the seat back, the seat must be able to withstand a load of twenty times the weight of the entire ‘Seat’ in a ‘Forward’ longitudinal direction simultaneously with, a total load of 3.4 kN for each child restraint anchorage, imposed on the ‘Seat’ by simultaneous application to each ‘Anchorage’ by a flexible connection which passes over the top of the seat-back to the ‘Child Restraint Anchorage’. Each load shall be applied ‘Forward’ of the seat-back not more than 5o above or below the horizontal, and not more than 5o to left or right of the longitudinal axis of the vehicle. (Clause 5.5.1.2 ADR 3/02)

3.  Unless it is demonstrated that ‘Seat’ assemblies such as rear ‘Seat’ backs are supported by a vehicle body member capable of withstanding the nominated load, the seat must be able to withstand a load producing a moment of 530 N.m about the ‘Seating Reference Point’ for each occupant position for which the ‘Seat’ is designed. The load must be applied to the upper cross member in a ‘Rearward’ longitudinal direction,  Testing which meets the 530 N.m requirement by any one of the following 3 methods is acceptable:

     a)    force applied horizontally;

     b)    force applied normal to ‘Seat’ back;

     c)    force applied longitudinally and ‘Rearward’ to the upper part of the ‘Seat’ back frame   through a component simulating the back of a 3-D manikin.

     If deflection of the ‘Seat’ back causes the moment arm to change, the force should be adjusted to ensure that the moment value of 530 N.m is achieved.  The ‘Seat’ must be located in the design position determined by the ‘Manufacturer’ to represent the worst case in relation to the loadings induced in the seat-anchorage and ‘Seat Adjuster’ mechanisms by the 530 N.m moment. (Clause 5.5.3 ADR 3/02)

 

4.  Except for a ‘Seat’ having a back that is adjustable only for the comfort of its occupants, hinged ‘Seats’ or ‘Seat’ backs must be equipped with a self-locking device for restraining the hinged ‘Seat’ or ‘Seat’ back and a release control for releasing that restraining device to preclude the possibility of impact forces acting on unrestrained hinged ‘Seats’ or ‘Seat’ backs.

     Where the ‘Seat’ must hinge to permit access to or egress from another seating position, the release control must be readily accessible to the occupant of that ‘Seat’ and to the occupant of any ‘Seat’ immediately behind that ‘Seat’.

     Where any of the ‘seats’ are mounted on a hinged engine cover, the engine cover must have a self locking latch.

 

5.  Vehicles of Japanese, USA or Canadian origin, with seats mounted on an engine cover which does not have a self locking latch, must meet the following requirements:

 

     a)    Except for a ‘Seat’ having a back that is adjustable only for the comfort of its occupants, hinged ‘Seats’ or ‘Seat’ backs must be equipped with a self-locking device for restraining the hinged ‘Seat’ or ‘Seat’ back and a release control for releasing that restraining device to preclude the possibility of impact forces acting on unrestrained hinged ‘Seats’ or ‘Seat’ backs.

     b)    Where the ‘Seat’ must hinge to permit access to or egress from another seating position, the release control must be readily accessible to the occupant of that ‘Seat’ and to the occupant of any ‘Seat’ immediately behind that ‘Seat’.

     c)    The restraining device (including the release control) must be constructed to preclude inertial release when loaded longitudinally in each horizontal direction to 20 times the acceleration due to gravity.

     d)    The restraining device must not release or fail when a ‘Forward’ horizontal longitudinal load equal to 20 times the weight of the entire ‘Seat’ back is applied at the centre of mass of the ‘Seat’ back.

     e)    If non-self-locking auxiliary latches are provided they must be unlatched during testing so that only the restraining device and hinges are taking the test loads.

     f)     Where ‘Seats’ are mounted on hinged covers, e.g. engine covers, and the ‘Seat’ assembly can withstand the test loads without tilting of the hinged cover and without any latches being latched, then the latches need not be self-locking.

6.  Acceptable for Vehicles Approved to Directive 74/408/EEC including all amendments up to and including Directive 96/37/EC or 2005/39/EC.

     Where vehicles have seatbelts attached to the seat, evidence must show that the vehicle is also approved to Directive 76/115/EEC including all amendments up to and including Directive 96/38/EC, or Directive 2005/41/EC.

     Compliance with items 3 and 5 above need not be verified for vehicles meeting item 6.

Additional Requirements or Exemptions

For a Sample Vehicle:

1.    Vehicles that demonstrate compliance with the requirements of ADR 72/00 are exempt from this ADR.  Vehicles not required to comply with ADR 72/00 (where seating reference height is more than 700 mm or ADR 72 is not applicable) are required to comply with ADR 29/00.

2.   a)  Evidence to demonstrate that the parts are identical to those fitted to vehicles of that model when supplied to the market in the US and Canada is acceptable. Spare parts lists that identify all of the side door structures including door hinges, door latches, door skins, door frames and any side intrusion structure and show that they are identical between the sample vehicle and the US or Canadian version.  Alternatively where the part numbers are available only as a subassembly, evidence that those part numbers are identical between the two markets or

    b)  Evidence to ADR requirements except that the test may be conducted in accordance with the procedure in FMVSS 214.

3.   a)  An analysis to demonstrate compliance needs to show clearly that the vehicle would comply with the requirements of the ADR if tested.  ADR 29 is an energy absorption test, so the analysis must demonstrate that, if tested, the vehicle structure would be able to absorb the required amount of energy.

    b) Finite element analysis is acceptable, but also would need to justify all assumptions made about the structure, and materials properties would need to be determined by scientific analysis (tensile strength test or hardness test).

         A typical finite element analysis would need to demonstrate an appropriate mesh structure, particularly around the areas of stress concentration.  The computations should be used to generate a load vs deflection plot from which the crush resistance can be calculated.

         The model would need to be validated by a test representative of key door structures.

     c) A comparison with a similarly sized full volume vehicle could be acceptable.  However, this comparison must demonstrate that the full volume vehicle is the worst case.  This method will need to be supported by partial test evidence, for example showing back to back testing of doors from each vehicle supported at the hinges and door latch.  In this case, the test results would need to demonstrate that the used imported vehicle door provided at least as much crush resistance as the full volume vehicle door.

 

        In all cases a), b) and c) particular attention must be given to the properties of steel when it reaches yield stress, and to the end conditions of beams in bending.
