Continental Europe: If you are taking a vehicle anywhere in Europe (or beyond), it helps to have a document handy that states Vehicle Type Approval Number, if applicable. It helps at French CT stations and Spanish ITV stations, Portuguese IMTT and so on, if you have key vehicle information to-hand for the tester.

iCoC
is an independent verification of your vehicle in relation to EC type approval.

UK:
If you are filling in the V55 form for registration in the UK, your iCoC contains all the information you will need to complete it.

What is an Independent Certificate of Conformity?

It is a document that states vehicle particulars in relation to European Commission (EC) Type Approval standards, along with other important information and vehicle facts.

To enable you to fill in the UK V55/5 vehicle registration form the DVLA recommends you use a conformity document or 'CoC'. If you have lost your original CoC or bought a vehicle without a CoC, buy an independent CoC from us; or call us or E-Mail us if unsure.

If you are taking a vehicle to an EU country from the UK, the authorities there will almost certainly require a document to ascertain type approval number status before you can register it there.

States Type Approval Number or status, if applicable.
States emissions rating (CO2), if applicable.
States TVV (Type, Variant and Version), also coded 'D2', if applicable.

* Homologation is the process of certifying or approving a product to indicate that it meets regulatory standards and specifications, such as safety and technical requirements

What is the Purpose of the Independent Certificate of Conformity?

 

UK: Perfect for absolute reference when filling in the UK V55/5 form. Will enable you to fill the form in.

 

UK: Not acceptable proof of European conformity for the DVLA in applications for vehicles less than 10 years old, without an IVA test pass (unless vehicle has been registered in the UK in the past).

 
UK: can be useful for transposing information about your vehicle when using other forms and procedures, such as the IVA Test application, MSVA Test application and the NOVA1 form. It can even be useful as a reference sheet at MOT stations for unregistered vehicles when the MOT tester creates a new record for a vehicles.   

 

FRANCE, SPAIN, PORTUGAL, and EU: Contains key information about the vehicle which is critical to registration in EU states (Carte Grise application, etc). We can also research and add data by research if required by registering authorities. 

 
  Beyond the EU: Customers buy the ICOC for use with authorities all over the world ~ it is a handy document stating the key data and registration history of the vehicle. We have had acceptances and repeat business from Singapore, South Africa, India, China, Russia, Turkey, Israel, New Zealand, Japan and the middle east.
 


THE LAW IN THE EU
registration of vehicles

In theory (LEGALLY) if the vehicle has already been registered in an EU member state it does not require a manufacturer's Certificate of Conformity the second time around (in accordance with EC directive 2007/C68/04 - if a vehicle was already registered in a member state, it should not pass again the same tests already passed, nor criteria for registration again).

But you will need to know or present the type approval number - if applicable, and emissions rating - if applicable. This kind of information and other data is contained in our Independent Certificate of Conformity


In practice, if your car is already registered and you move it to another EU country, the authorities in your new country will often require additional technical checks or certificates before registration. Our Independent Certificate of Conformity, in place of a manufacturer's one may meet this demand as it corroborates vehicle data displayed on your registration document and states the EC type approval number, where relevant and applicable. Please be aware that an agency or organisation this is presented to may ask for additional documentation or ‘supportive evidence’ depending on what procedure is being undertaken.
