Passenger carrying vehicles seatbelt anchorage components – declare safety standards met at Individual Vehicle Approval (IVA) test.

14 Oct 2020

Passenger carrying vehicles seatbelt anchorage components – declare safety standards met at Individual Vehicle Approval (IVA) test.

 

With seat mounted seatbelts more common in PSVs, evidence of approval testing for each component, i.e. floor, seat, seat leg, must be provided at IVA.

 

To ensure that the directive compliance for the components used has been met without in-vehicle destructive testing, which tests the ability of each component to withstand the forces of an accident, the installed components must be able to be traced back to directive tested components.

 

Where unapproved components have been used in the seatbelt anchorage system DVSA is not in a position to approve the vehicle(s).

 

Two documents have been released by DVSA for completion in a format considered satisfactory to enable evidence of seatbelt compliance to be supplied.
