The Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation intends to retain the possibility of installing used spare parts on cars, if this is required for the repair of cars. This was reported on August 7 by TASS with reference to the press service of the department.
It is noted that the prohibition on the use of used spare parts will apply only in case of changes in the design of the machine.
In July 2020, the Russian engineering center NAMI developed amendments to the technical regulations of the countries of the Customs Union, prohibiting the installation of used mufflers, steering racks, brake system components, seat belts and airbags on cars.
According to the general director for technical regulation of NAMI Sergey Anikeev, these components are critical to ensure a safe ride. They are dismantled from decommissioned vehicles that either have exhausted their resource or have been damaged as a result of an accident. It is impossible to guarantee the absence of hidden damage, as well as the presence of fatigue damage.
On July 13, it was reported that in Russia, almost half of the drivers are distracted from the road by driving. Moreover, 70% of them are sure that this does not prevent them from controlling the situation.
