Vehicles and vehicle parts are subject to approval in almost all countries of the world. This means that you must meet certain requirements that are regulated by law. As a rule, compliance with these requirements must be demonstrated to a licensing authority.

Understanding these requirements is an essential prerequisite for being allowed to place the products on the market!

In addition to the Framework Regulation (EU) 2018/858, there are other regulations ((EU) 2019/2144; (EU) 2022/2236; …) and directives that set formal and technical requirements.

Do you know the requirements that are placed on your products?
