Within the framework of the damage/loss prevention inspection also the steering gear is inspected annually, after which a steering gear certificate is issued. A steering gear certificate fulfils the requirement of a triennial steering gear inspection prescribed by law.
Within the framework of the steering gear inspection prescribed by law (ROSR)
As from 1 April 2007 the government requires a triennial steering gear inspection. Together with steering gear manufacturers a quality system for carrying out these inspections was developed. It includes a verification list in aid of carrying out the inspections, quality criteria for the steering engine inspectors, various procedures and an annual independent audit of the inspecting steering engine manufacturer by IVR.
The added value of this system is that the quality of the inspections is assured and that an independent organisation supervises. IVR checks the inspection reports that are sent in, stores them in a database and issues the Steering Engine Certificate.
