The 29th October is the final date for the phased integration of the European Whole Vehicle Type Approval.

The introduction of the European Community Whole Vehicle Type Approval (ECWVTA) legislation means that vehicles and components must meet an approved industry standard. A ‘type’ of vehicle is based on a group of vehicles that have the same characteristics, one vehicle from this group type is tested and number of requirements are put in place. The final date for commercial and goods vehicles is currently the 29th October 2014.

UKAP work with body builders and truck manufacturers to provide them with a range of commercial vehicle wiring harnesses and looms which comply with the new legislation. For more information please contact our team on 01543 270270 or send an email to sales@ukautomotive.co.uk.
