941.261 order of FDJP on the instruments used for the speed control and monitoring of traffic at red lights (speed measuring instruments Ordinance) of November 28, 2008 (status 1 January 2013) the federal Department of justice and police (FDJP), having regard to the art. 5, al. 2, 16, al. 2, 17, al. 2, 24, al. 3, and 33 of the Ordinance of 15 February 2006 on measuring instruments (Ordinance on measuring instruments), stop: art. 1 purpose this fixed order: a. the requirements pertaining to the measuring instruments used for speed, and controls for the monitoring of traffic at red lights as well as measuring instruments used for the control of speedometers; b. the procedure of placing on the market of these measuring instruments; c. the stability of these measuring instruments measurement procedure.
S. 2 scope of application are subject to this order: a. the instruments used for official controls of speed in road traffic; b. the instruments used for the official monitoring of road traffic at the lights red; c. measuring instruments used for the official control of the speedometers according to art. 55 of the Ordinance of 19 June 1995 concerning technical requirements for road vehicles.
RS 741.41 s. 3 definitions for the purposes of this order, means: a. measuring instruments used for the speed control: all elements of a measurement system necessary for the determination of velocity and the allocation of the measured value of speed controlled vehicle; b. measuring instruments used for monitoring road traffic at red lights : all the elements necessary to the determination of a transition to the red light and its assignment to the controlled vehicle; v. measuring instruments used for the official control of the speedometers: all the elements necessary to the determination of the measured value of speed.
Are also part of an instrument for measuring speed within the meaning of para. 1 all elements that contribute directly to the determination of the measured value but which can disrupt it, such elements embedded in the pavement surface, caches placed in front of the instruments and protections against weather, or that may affect the data transmitted to the central analytical data.
S. 4 essential requirements measuring instruments shall meet the essential requirements laid down in Schedule 1 of the Ordinance on measuring instruments as well as those set out in the schedule to this order. In addition, they must meet the requirements of the order of 22 May 2008 FEDRO for the Ordinance on the control of road traffic.
The integrity of data must be guaranteed during transmission to the central position of the data analysis. the federal Institute of Metrology (METAS) shall adopt guidelines for the integrity of the data.
In association with environments in which electromagnetic measuring instruments are intended to be used, measuring instruments must comply with the requirements of the class E2 and E3 laid down in annex 1, c. 1.3.3 of the Ordinance on measuring instruments. METAS issue directives taking into account the current state of technology.
The wireless connection on site and automatic measuring instruments used for speed controls and monitoring of road traffic at traffic lights must be protected against unauthorized access. METAS issue directives on the security of access.
RS 741.013.1 the designation of the administrative unit was adapted to 1 Jan. 2013 pursuant to art. 16 al. 3 o of 17 nov. 2004 on official publications (RS 170.512.1). It was taken into account this mod. throughout the text.
S. 5 procedure for placing on the market the instruments used for controls speed and measuring instruments used for monitoring road traffic at red lights must have undergone a regular approval and initial verification according to annex 5 of the Ordinance on measuring instruments.
The instruments used for the official control of the speedometers must have made the subject of an initial audit according to annex 5, ch. 2, of the Ordinance on measuring instruments.
S. 6 procedure of maintaining stability of measurement measuring instruments are subject to later verification according to annex 7, c. 1, of the Ordinance on measuring instruments, performed by METAS or by an authorized verification body.
The later instruments of measurement takes place verification: a. annually for the measuring instruments used for controls speed and measuring instruments used for the monitoring of traffic at red lights; b. every two years for the measuring instruments used for the official control of the speedometers.
If the metrological characteristics of the instrument model so request or permit, METAS may reduce or extend the time for later verification.
If the measuring instruments are not verified within a period of six months after the expiry of the validity of the audit, they are subject to review prior to the new audit.
S. 7 repeal of the duty in force order of FDJP on March 1, 1999 on official road traffic speed measuring instruments is repealed.
[RO 1999 1388, 2006 4197]
S. 8 transitional provisions the measuring instruments approved prior to the entry into force of this order may be placed on the market until the expiry of the approval and be subjected to the initial verification provided in annex 5 c. 2, of the Ordinance on measuring instruments.
They may also be subject to later verification after the expiry of the validity of the approval.
The standard deviation s of the gaps should not exceed 1.2% for all measuring instruments. Are otherwise applicable the limits of permissible errors laid down in the annex to this order.
S. 9 entry into force this order comes into force on March 31, 2009.
Annex (art. 4) specific requirements (permissible limits of error) 1 General provisions the climatic conditions in which the limits of permissible errors must be respected are those specified by the manufacturer for the corresponding instrument type.
Percentual values are deviations from the indication of the instrument from the indication of reference.
2 measuring instruments used for the control of speed in road traffic and measuring instruments used for monitoring road traffic at lights average 2.1 m of deviations from the reference value: 1.4% £m£ + 0.5% deviation s of variances: £ 0.8% (m + 3s):
