The Centre has issued a notification laying down safety requirements such as visual display, handrail and
seat belt anchorages for construction equipment vehicles (CEVs).

 This is to ensure safety while these vehicles are running on public roads along with other vehicles, the Ministry of
Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) said.

 Certain safety requirements are already mandated for construction equipment vehicles under the Central Motor
Vehicles Rules (CMVR), 1989.

 The new norms will be rolled out in a phased manner — Phase-I (April 2021) and Phase-II (April 2024) — as per
the notification.

 This Standard aims to introduce AIS (Automotive Industry Standard) 160, to introduce several safety requirements
including visual display requirements, requirements for operator station and maintenance areas, non-metallic fuel
tanks, minimum access dimensions, and others.
