Regulation (EU) No 167/2013 sets out in Article 17, together with its delegated act Regulation (EU) 2015/68, the braking safety requirements necessary for EU typeapproval of all categories of agricultural and forestry vehicle (AFV). This includes provisions for the use of ABS on such vehicles, set out in Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/68.

TRL was commissioned by the European Commission to undertake an assessment addressing Recital (6) of Regulation (EU) 2015/68 to provide the Commission with the information necessary to amend, as appropriate, the Delegated Regulation for AFVs with
a maximum design speed of 40 < Vmax ≤ 60 km/h.

The report examines the availability of ABS technology for these vehicles, the applicability for use, and the cost benefit analysis of implementation.
