Most important changes produced in the ITV by the new regulations
The application of the new regulation of the ITV will start next May 20, 2018. The most important changes are the following:
- ITV IN ADVANCE, WITHOUT AFFECTING THE RENEWAL DATE
- PASS THE SECOND REVIEW IN A DIFFERENT ITV STATION
- CARRY THE INSURANCE WITH YOURSELF
- NO INSPECTIONS WITH SLIGHT DEFECTS
- MILEAGE CHECK
- CHECK INCORPORATION OF THE SYSTEM ON BOARD DIAGNOSTICS (OBD)
ITV in advance without affecting the renewal date
The new regulations allow customers to pass the Vehicle Technical Inspection (ITV) in advance. With the new regulations it will be possible to pass the ITV up to one month before the expiration date and, in addition, it will not suppose a change in the renewal date.
Pass the second revision in another ITV station
In case the result of the ITV is unfavourable, when passing it again it can be done in a different station to that of the first appointment.
Carry the insurance
With the new regulations, the ITV stations will ask the customer for the accreditation of compulsory insurance in case of an ordinary or extraordinary inspection of the vehicle.
No inspections with minor defects
Inspections may only have a favorable or unfavorable result, with the no option of favourable result with slight defects.
Another aspect to take into account with the application of the new regulations will be as follows; ITV stations will continue to check the mileage of the vehicle and must verify that there is no clear manipulation of the meterometer or that it is not out of service.
On Board Diagnostics (OBS) system testing
This system will be the only one that will start on September 1 and not next May 20. The stations will work with the new OBD reading devices, in order to verify that the emission control system incorporated by the vehicles does not present defects or faults. It will also be verified that it has not been tampered with presents disconnections or fraudulent disassemblies. Then, the control of the emissions will be much more detailed and exhaustive. The on-board diagnosis system complements the traditional emission tests, but does not replace them.
