ROVER Release 7 launch date

ROVER Release 7 went live on 13 July 2022.

What changed in Release 7?

ROVER Release 7 focused on improving functionality and increasing security, including:

  • Multifactor authentication: Existing users must set up multifactor authentication to access their ROVER account. New users set it up when they create their account.
  • Self-manage your access: Change your ROVER contact email address (ROVER sign in address remains the same) and reset your own password.
  • Withdraw, amend and resubmit applications: Withdraw and delete submitted applications, or withdraw, amend and resubmit applications for assessment.
  • Editing variants: Edit variants in new vehicle type approval applications and provide details for each variant individually on the road vehicle descriptor (RVD) form.
  • ROVER notifications about ADRs: Relevant stakeholders (who need to take action) receive a notification from ROVER to advise of ADR changes affecting their approval.
  • Application nicknames: Assign a nickname (of your choosing) to your applications, making it easier to identify each application.
  • ADR extent of compliance table: Sort and search content within the table.
  • Vary Model Reports: Model Reports can be varied in ROVER.
