Type Approval for Goods Vehicles
Untill recently there was no European wide approval of Goods Vehicles with individual Member States operating their own national type approval schemes. Approval in one Member State did not automatically allow for registration in others.
However, a recent amendment to the Framework Directive (70/156/EEC) changed this. Directive 2007/46/EC, signed in October 2007, introduces the basis of a European wide scheme for trucks and this will be phased in over coming years. Although changes seem a long way off it is best to be prepared and the following linked documents are intended to explain things in more detail.
