Tachoblog wants to remind all European readers that the second EU directive on close-proximity and wide-angle mirrors (more commonly known as blind-spot mirrors), 2007/38/EC, comes into force at 00oohrs 1 April.
In simple terms, the directive requires that all commercial vehicles over 3.5 tonnes that were first registered after 1 January 200 are fitted with compliant blind-spot mirrors or cameras.
Initially operators can self-certify their compliance using a form (availble from VOSA for UK operators). This form must then be submitted at the next annual test.
Checkyourmirror.com is a helpful website that will aid you in finding out whether your vehicle is already compliant or not.
If you like such things, you can read the entire directive…
