what is COC and Why do i need it?
A COC (Certificate of Conformity) is a declaration of conformity with the type approval of the European Union. The purpose of this document is to ensure the free movement of goods within the European Union, specifically those goods that are subject to homologation and registration.
Our company offers the compliance certificate for vehicles through our website.
The certificate of conformity can only be obtained for cars (M1), motorcycles (L), vans (N1).
A COC is the manufacturer's declaration that the vehicle complies with a certain approved type. This document contains information about the vehicle and the manufacturer's identification, type approval number (also called approval password), technical specifications and other information. The content of a COC is defined by the law of the European Union (Amendment IX, Regulation 92/53).
The COC is available for all vehicles that need it built by the European market.
The Certificates of Conformity have been defined in the European Single Market and the Type Approval Directive (EU-92). The European Single Market was official in January 1993. Part of the effort of the "EU-92" was to eliminate technical barriers that prevented the free movement of products within the European Union market. The greatest impact of this effort has been in the area of ??standardization in the automotive sector. The European Commission seeks to harmonize the technical and environmental legislation in the car between the member states. European legislation defines standards in the areas of noise, particulate emissions and safety. In addition, the EU Directive on
Type Approval (Directive 92/53 of the European Commission) eliminates the need for type approval requirements by establishing a set of standards for cars and their components for the entire EU. This directive addresses the clarification of the Type Approval procedure for motor vehicles, separate technical units (eg trailers), and components.
Simplify the documentation, designate the type approval number of a separate technical unit with a certificate of conformity, and define the vehicles, individual technical unit (s), and component (s). Certificates of Conformity, as specified in Annex IX of Directive 92/53, will be required for a car to circulate. For type approvals, a confirmation that is issued under the relevant regulations of the Economic Commission for Europe of the United Nations (UNECE) is recognized as equivalent to a guaranteed approval under comparable European legislation. In March 1992, the European Council formally adopted the few remaining parts of the legislation relating to the components that are necessary to make the full type approval of a vehicle a reality for passenger vehicles. In June 1992, the Member States approved the adoption of European legislation creating a unique system for the certification of passenger cars, defining safety and other technical requirements. The legislation established an EU type approval system to replace the national systems of the twelve member states. In 1996, the European Type Approval system became mandatory.
What do I need to get my COC? Information available on our website.
Vehicles with a European-type homologation can
be marketed anywhere in the European Union. Therefore, a vehicle only needs to
receive the type approval certificate from an EU country to be accepted in all
other member states. To receive type approval, products can be taken to
specific facilities where they will be tested or manufacturers can choose to
keep their own equipment for the tests to be performed. However, EU and US
vehicles must still be certified on certain regulations by an authorized agency
in a member state. A similar system was adopted for the approval of type of two
and three-wheeled vehicles, which became effective on January 1, 1994
