Heavy Goods Vehicle Inspection: Seat Belts & Supplementary Restraint Systems Mobile App
The primary purpose of the Heavy Goods Vehicle Inspection: Seat Belts & Supplementary Restraint Systems mobile app is to support staff in conducting the annual testing of vehicles.
How does it work?
The app is useful to those responsible for the maintenance of large commercial vehicles so that they remain well informed on the current minimum legal standards for roadworthiness. It must be emphasised that these are minimum acceptable standards, which do not necessarily allow for further deterioration when the vehicle is in service. This inspection applies to all vehicles with seat belts and/or Supplementary restraint systems (SRS) fitted. The minimum requirement for the fitment of seat belts is detailed in the tables below. The only goods vehicles up to and including 3500kg DGW likely to be subject to this inspection are mini-articulated vehicles. Minimum Requirements for Forward Facing Seats on Vehicles First Used from 1 October 2001 with A DGW in Excess of 3500kg
