Component type approvals to commence later this month

Manufacturers will soon be able to seek a component type approval under the Road Vehicle Standards (RVS) legislation, for components used in the manufacture of a road vehicle, including an assembly.

Applications for component type approvals will open in the ROVER portal on Wednesday, 23 September 2020.

Under RVS legislation, a holder of a component type approval will have greater responsibilities to ensure compliance.

Applicants must have supporting documentation to satisfy the eligibility criteria, for example, an appropriate Quality Management System (QMS) to demonstrate full control of the design, componentry and manufacturing process.

Please visit the RVS legislation guidance material and resources for more information.
