Designation of technical services

The purpose of the designation of test laboratories and certification bodies as technical services is to document their competence and to strengthen confidence in their test results.

Role of Technical services in the KBA type approval procedure (Picture has long description)

In the designation procedure, competence is confirmed

For technical services A, B, D (product testing)

To carry out or supervise tests, and create test reports for the Type Approval procedure/CoP product checks of the KBA. The evaluation is carried out on basis of EN ISO/IEC 17025 and/or EN ISO/IEC 17020.

For technical services C (certification bodies)

To evaluate the extent to which a quality management system conforms to approval relevant requirements and to create corresponding attestations for the Type Approval procedure/CoP system evaluation of the KBA.

Assessment is made on basis of the EN ISO/IEC 17021-1 standard.


In connection with the EC Vehicle Approval Ordinance (EG-FGV), technical services will be recognised. Such recognition is synonymous with designation.

After designation (recognition) the technical service will be notified to the EU Commission and/or the UNECE secretary’s office. In addition, designated technical services are published on the KBA Internet page.
