Individual vehicle approval

Individual approval is an option to put in circulation a new vehicle without registering, which is contained in Royal Decree 750/2010, by which regulate: the approval procedures for motor vehicles and their trailers, self-propelled machinery or towed agricultural vehicles, as well as systems and parts of such vehicles. For this it is necessary to prove that the vehicle complies with Regulatory Acts for the application, depending on their category.

The concept of Individual Approval is also applicable to multi-stage approval process, in which a final-stage manufacturer (coach builders) completes the incomplete vehicle (chassis-cab) supplied by a manufacturer of 1st phase. Among the most common bodywork to which this procedure is applied, we find tautliner, car carriers, insulated and refrigerated.

For the processing of an individual approval of a completed vehicle, it is necessary that the final-stage manufacturer complies with certain requirements such as:

  • Must be registered on the National Register of Manufacturers and Authorized Signatures.
  • Have a Certificate of Conformity of Production (COP) in force.
  • Possess all Reports H updated, necessary for justification of the completed vehicle, checking that both devices installed as the final measures are included within the scope thereof.

If fulfill these prerequisites, there is some documentation to be submitted to the Technical Service or the manufacturer or its representative, consisting of:

  • Partnership Agreement between the manufacturers of the various phases involved in the bodywork or the “Substitute Report” issued by the manufacturer of the 1st phase.
  • Technical sheet Type C of the incomplete vehicle.
  • Reduced technical sheet of the vehicle transformed.
  • Technical Report and photographs that sufficiently describe the bodywork done or completed.

The role of Technical Service is to verify compliance with all Regulatory Acts that are required to complete vehicle and issue the report of Individual Approval wherein the Approval Authority shall be based, to grant Approval Individual and the corresponding password.

For this first performs a review of the documentation, and in those cases where necessary, in-situ vehicle inspection and testing according to the Regulatory Acts that apply.
