The height of the PEAS of the vehicle mentioned in Option 1 is measured at the most advanced location where a vertical plane cuts a complete section5 of the vehicle`s PEAS. The heights of the upper and lower primary structure are determined as the heights of the top or bottom of the smallest vertical rectangle that surrounds the outer surfaces of the PEAS section. For this measure, all components that are not designed for the derivation of crash energy are excluded from the measure.6 This agreement remains in force until both parties agree that such an agreement is no longer desirable. Notwithstanding the previous changes to any Canadian or U.S. regulatory requirement that THE “COMPANY” determines, the performance of its obligations, as noted in this agreement, “COMPANY” reserves the right to terminate this agreement in writing to Transport Canada 90 days in advance. This notification must contain supporting evidence of this decision. The Minister or his duly authorized representative informs all other participating vehicle manufacturers listed in Schedule B in the event of termination of this agreement. When a light vehicle is equipped with a crash compatibility device used in a high-gravity frontal collision with another vehicle, all measurements must be taken with these devices in their condition. Applicability: All light trucks with GVWRs up to 4536 kg (10,000 pounds), except, Low production volume vehicles, vehicles over 3856 kg of GVWR with functional criteria that prevent them from meeting performance criteria (. For example, postal vehicles, military vehicles, public and private services, vehicles specially designed for off-road use and incomplete vehicles) which, according to the manufacturer, cannot meet the performance criteria without seriously compromising their functionality. All measurements are carried out using the vehicle on a flat horizontal surface and at an unpolluted weight (according to paragraph 2, paragraph 1, of the Road Safety Regulation, but without accessories normally removed from the vehicle when it is not in service). The tyres are inflated at the pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer and all systems that may affect the height of the vehicle`s structure (for example. B air suspensions, etc.) will be in the vehicle`s travel configuration travelling at 56 km/h on a flat horizontal surface.
Applicability: These performance criteria do not apply to vehicles that a manufacturer is unable to meet due to practicality and fundamental operating problems (e.g., very low volume vehicles. B sales, convertibles, very low-height sports cars and removable door vehicles), or should be excluded from the market if compliance is required. In the case of excluded vehicles, the manufacturer of Transport Canada must, upon request, provide a declaration of exclusion. The measurement of the height of the secondary energy absorption structure of the option 2 vehicle must be determined as the height of the horizontal plane tangent at the lowest point of the secondary energy-absorbing structure. Participating manufacturers will begin to develop light trucks in accordance with one of two geometric alignment alternatives: with the light vacuum truck (as defined in paragraph 2, paragraph 1 of the Road Safety Regulations, but without accessories normally removed from the vehicle when not in use): the purpose of this agreement between Transport Canada and “COMPANY” is to establish the general terms of sale for marketing in Canada, vehicles designed according to the performance criteria of Appendix A, as amended from time to time.
