This Directive applies to the type-approval of vehicles, whether built in one or more stages. It applies to vehicles defined in Article 2(d) having a maximum design speed of not less than 6 km/h.

(b) machinery that has been specially designed for forestry use, such as skidders and forwarders as defined in standard ISO 6814:2000;

(c) forestry machinery based on chassis for earthmoving equipment as defined in standard ISO 6165:2001;
