GIZ sourcebook module 4b: Inspection and maintenance and roadworthiness
Safety and emission improvements are the main challenges for an increasing vehicle fleet in developing countries. While Government can set standards for safe, clean and fuel efficient cars, only an efficient Inspection & Maintenance (I/M) scheme can maintain safety levels (e.g. brakes, lights, chassis) and low emissions (e.g. exhaust gas test, OBD check). This module discusses recommendations around the main aspects of introducing an efficient inspection & maintenance program.
