BODYBUILT IN SPAIN
- VEHICLES MODIFICATIONS FOR MANUFACTURERS
If you are going to build unbodied chassis on several new industrial vehicles with the same trademark and type, you can make a small series approval (NKS) or a European type approval if you want to market them abroad. As a Technical Service appointed by the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness (MINECO), we are enabled to make an extensive report on approval aspects that will be submitted to the Ministry for approval if applicable.
New industrial vehicles bodybuilt in Spain can be approved by a National Type Approval of a completed or multi-phase vehicle. The vehicle can have two or more phases, that will complete the vehicle successively until it is finished. Every phase manufacturers must be registered at the Register of Signatures of Manufacturers and Importers of the Ministry and must approve every phase they are responsible for. Also, they must have a valid UCA report and European Approvals, Directives or Regulations on the matters they have changed. This approval is a unique one for every vehicle and is issued for the specific chassis number.
LCOE, as a Laboratory appointed by the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness (MINECO), prior inspection if applicable, can make an extensive report on approval aspects that will be submitted to the Ministry for approval if applicable.
Modifications in vehicles must be performed according to Royal Decree 866/2010, by which requirements to be met for the modification or alteration of any safety component in vehicles are established.
In order to issue the corresponding modification report, there must be documentary evidence of the compliance with test requirements by the corresponding technical documentation or the corresponding tests by the Laboratory.
LCOE has ENAC 17020 accreditation and is appointed by the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness to issue modification reports, and to perform tests according to the corresponding accreditations and designations.
