MODUK - DEF STAN 23-6
Technology Guidance for Military Logistics Vehicles
|Publication Date:||1 November 2005|
This Defence Standard outlines the technical requirements for military logistic vehicles and towed equipment; it is complementary to the military logistic vehicle procurement requirement, User Requirement Document (URD) and System Requirement Document (SRD). It lists National and International Standards, Specifications, Agreements and Directives related to vehicle engineering and human factors. It is the responsibility of the user to ensure that all other relevant standards, regulations and guidelines are adhered to. One of the main overarching standards for motor vehicles and their trailers is EU Directive COM (2003) 418 FINAL. Furthermore, the EU Framework Directive for Motor Vehicles is 70/156/EEC as amended and the lists of technical directives which are required for type approval of vehicle before sale into the EC market. Note that this Defence Standard does not cover motorcycles or quad bikes.
This Defence Standard is intended to assist the procurement of military vehicles for operating both in UK and other countries where rules and regulations may vary. If any non-conformance is found for equipment used in the UK then it needs to be technically reviewed/approved by the Land Systems Safety Board (LSSB).
