Results expected from EIHP2 are:
of a world-wide harmonised regulation for hydrogen fuelled
of procedures for periodic vehicle inspections (roadworthiness).
- As far
as possible development of a world-wide standard or regulation
and of peri-odic inspection procedures for the relevant refuelling
infrastructure, subsystems or components.
regulations and standards will enable vehicle and infrastructure
industry to save enormous resources in bringing hydrogen fuelled
fuel cell vehicles onto the road. Many coun-tries will for the
first time have the legal basis to approve the operation of
hydrogen fuelled vehicles on public roads and refilling at public
refuelling stations. In addition, the access of European vehicle
and infrastructure component manufacturers to the EU market
as well as the North American market will be facilitated in
the medium and long term.
