Mandatory equipment in car

Recently bought first car and trying to understand what are the mandatory things to have in a car in CH and DE/FR/IT. Found post from 2011 and want to make sure that it is still accurate:
Quote:
In Switzerland you must carry originals in the car: (Or possible on the spot fines)
Fahrzeugschein - car registration document, brown & grey paper
**Abgasprüfung - certificate and printout from garage of exhaust emissions
Swiss Führerschein - Driving license + wear your glasses if required
Warndrieck - Triangle, within reach of driver

In addition in Germany you should have available,
Verbandskasten - approved first aid kit (Look for the DIN number)

In addition in Germany, Italy, France, Austria
Warnveste - Luminous jacket, one for each person, wear before leaving the car (Get everyone behind the crash barrier)
Is "Abgasprüfung" mandatory? My car has B6b emission code - my assumption was that I don't need this specific document in this case.

Where I can get approved "Verbandskasten"?

Don't need it with B6b

Für folgende Motorwagen erfolgt die Beurteilung über die Abgaswartungspflicht seit 1. Januar 2013 anhand der Angaben im Fahrzeugausweis:

Personenwagen und leichte Nutzfahrzeugen bis 3,5 Tonnen Gesamtgewicht mit Benzin- oder Gasmotor:
Keine obligatorische Abgaswartung, wenn die Fahrzeuge mindestens der Abgasnorm Euro 3 entsprechen. Die exakte Beurteilung erfolgt anhand des Emissionscodes, der im Fahrzeugausweis im Feld 72 dargestellt ist. Bei den Codes B03, B04, B5a, B5b, B6a, B6b, B6c, B6d, A04, A05 oder A07 ist keine Abgaswartung erforderlich.
Personenwagen und leichte Nutzfahrzeugen bis 3,5 Tonnen Gesamtgewicht mit Dieselmotor:
Keine obligatorische Abgaswartung, wenn die Fahrzeuge mindestens der Abgasnorm Euro 4 entsprechen. Die exakte Beurteilung erfolgt anhand des Emissionscodes, der im Fahrzeugausweis im Feld 72 dargestellt ist. Bei den Codes B04, B5a, B5b, B6a, B6b, B6c, B6d, A04, A05 oder A07 ist keine Abgaswartung erforderlich.
Schwere Motorwagen über 3,5 Tonnen Gesamtgewicht mit Dieselmotor:
Keine obligatorische Abgaswartung, wenn die Fahrzeuge mindestens der Abgasnorm Euro IV entsprechen und nach dem 30. September 2006 erstmals in Verkehr gesetzt wurden. Die exakte Beurteilung erfolgt anhand des Emissionscodes, der im Fahrzeugausweis im Feld 72 dargestellt ist. Bei den Codes E04, E05, E06, A13, A14, A15, A16, A17, A18, A19, A26 oder A28 bis A37 und bei Erstinverkehrsetzung nach dem 30.9.2006 ist keine Abgaswartung erforderlich.
Hinweis: Auch wenn ein OBD-System vorhanden ist, bedeutet dies alleine noch nicht, dass das Fahrzeug automatisch von der Abgaswartungspflicht befreit ist. Massgebend sind obenstehende Bedingungen.

That would be an Euro 6b car. That must have an OBD and is relieved from the regular emission tests.

Most obviously such first aid kits are available in a German stores. If it says DIN 13164 you are good.
But no need to hop over the border as DIN 13164 complaint first aid kits are usually also sold Swiss in store such as Aldi, Obi, Bauhaus, Jumbo, Coop Bau & Hoppy, Migros doIt or at gas station.

It is actually not clear if the Germans can mandate an approved first aid kit in a Swiss car. But having one can be helpful in other situations. A DIN 13164 first aid kit does not cost much and does not need much of space.
