• El RD garantiza la mejora de la seguridad vial manteniendo la imparcialidad en la ITV
  • ANCERA ha insistido constantemente en garantizar la objetividad de la inspección
  • Los talleres independientes hubieran podido perder hasta un 20% de sus operaciones
  • A partir de mayo de 2018 las ITV deberán incorporar herramientas de diagnosis

El Consejo de Ministros ha aprobado un Real Decreto que establece los requisitos que deben satisfacer las ITV con el fin de mejorar la seguridad vial y el medio ambiente. La norma garantiza la imparcialidad, independencia y objetividad de los operadores del diagnóstico del vehículo, fruto del trabajo realizado durante años por ANCERA y que en caso de haber sido una norma desfavorable perjudicaría a los 40.000 talleres independientes que operan en España.

ANCERA ha defendido durante años la independencia, imparcialidad y objetividad del servicio de inspección en aras del beneficio común de la posventa independiente y del consumidor, al cual se ha de garantizar la seguridad vial con la mayor eficacia y eficiencia posible. Para ello, ANCERA ha expresado su posición en diferentes ocasiones tanto a la Comisión Europea, previa publicación de la directiva que traspone nuestro reglamento, como al Ministerio de Industria.

En palabras del Presidente de ANCERA, Miguel Ángel Cuerno: “Debemos recordar que la gran mayoría de talleres multimarca en España son Pymes y Micropymes con una media aproximada de 3,5 trabajadores”. Asimismo afirma que: “Una posible liberalización de las ITV sería devastadora para estos talleres, los cuales podrían perder hasta un 20% de sus operaciones, al no poder acometer la inversión en bienes de equipo y maquinaria necesaria para realizar la inspección de vehículos, la cual sí que podrían llevar a cabo los concesionarios”.

El Reglamento, que no entrará en vigor hasta el 20 de mayo de 2018, exigirá a las estaciones de ITV disponer de herramientas de lectura de diagnóstico que se conectan con los ordenadores de a bordo de los vehículos, con el fin de inspeccionar los sistemas electrónicos y mejorar los controles sobre las emisiones.

Otros beneficios para el consumidor son la libertad de elección de estación ITV cuando el resultado de la inspección sea desfavorable y la posibilidad de adelantar hasta un mes la fecha de la ITV sin que varíe la fecha prevista para la siguiente.

ANCERA is satisfied with the new regulation of roadworthiness tests

  • The law guarantees the improvement of road safety while maintaining impartiality in the test
  • ANCERA has constantly insisted on guaranteeing the objectivity of the inspection
  • Independent workshops could have lost up to 20% of their operations
  • Starting in September 2018 testing centres must incorporate diagnostic tools

Last May, the law that establishes requirements to be met by the roadworthiness test in order to improve road safety and the environment, which comes from Directive 2014/45 / EU, came into force in Spain.

The standard guarantees the impartiality, independence and objectivity of the operators of vehicle diagnosis, the result of the work carried out for years by ANCERA and which, if it had been an unfavorable rule, would harm the 40,000 independent workshops operating in Spain.

ANCERA has defended for years the independence, impartiality and objectivity of the roadworthiness test for the common benefit of the independent aftermarket and the consumer to which road safety must be guaranteed as effectively and efficiently as possible. For this, ANCERA has expressed its position on different occasions both to the Government and to the Ministry of Industry.

In the words of the President of ANCERA, Miguel Ángel Cuerno: “We should remember that the majority of multi-brand workshops in Spain are SMEs with an average of approximately 3.5 workers”. The President also affirms that: “A possible liberalization of the roadworthiness tests would be devastating for these workshops, which could lose up to 20% of their operations, by not being able to undertake the investment in capital equipment and machinery necessary to carry out the testing of vehicles, what the car dealers could do.”

The Regulation, in force from 20 May, 2018, will require roadworthiness centers to have diagnostic reading tools that connect to the OBD of vehicles, in order to inspect electronic systems and improve controls on emissions from September.

Although the generalized use of OBD reading tools is foreseen for the verification of electronically controlled security systems, this can not be implemented until this is established in the Roadworthiness Procedure Manual of the test centers, in which we are working together with the Goverment and Roadworthiness Test Centre Association.

Other benefits for the consumer are the freedom of choice of center when the result of the test is unfavorable and the possibility of advancing up to one month the date of the test without varying the date scheduled for the next.

Finally, ANCERA wants to highlight the importance of the regulation for dealers of diagnostic equipment, for the obligation to have these in the roadworthiness test centres, and for the workshops, as operations increase due to the possible detections of breakdowns in the electronic systems produced in the roadworthiness test. In addition, the organization understands that the obligation to have diagnostic reading tools connected to the computers on board the vehicle can not be conceived with the possible closure of the OBD connector.
