VCA TYPE APPROVED BRAKED TRAILERS
Directive 2007/46/EC introduced a European wide certification scheme for these vehicles.
Type approval is the confirmation that production samples of a design will meet specified performance standards. The specification of the product is recorded and only that specification is approved.
Automotive EC Directives and ECE Regulations require third party approval – testing, certification and production conformity assessment by an independent body. Each Member State is required to appoint an Approval Authority to issue the approvals and a Technical Service to carry out the testing to the Directives Regulations. An approval issued by one Authority will be accepted in all the Member States.
VCA is the designated UK Approval Authority and a Technical Service for all type approvals to automotive EC Directives and ECE Regulations.
