Check on the conformity assurance measures of the Type Approval holder (CoP-Q)

CoP-Q means: Checking of procedures and processes at the Type Approval holder.

It must be ensured that the approved product can be produced with a constant quality in conformity with the Type Approval. The production and testing procedures (processes) and the effectiveness of the measures taken for product conformity assurance are hereby individually checked.

The planning of CoP-Q measures is made according to the following criteria:

  • All Type Approval holders without a proper certification of their QM system (a proper certification means that the certificate was issued by a certification body designated by the Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt (KBA). This ensures that Type Approval related matters are continually checked.)
  • The time that has elapsed since the last inspection
  • For Type Approval holders who are new to the KBA or not very well known
  • Results of previous inspections

Alongside these planning quantities, reason-related requirements are to be taken into consideration. These could be information from the Type Approval or product safety areas, for example. Information from the KBA product monitoring (CoP-P) could also give reason for a system check.

In the preparation of an on-site inspection (procedure), the Type Approval holder is informed on

  • The intended inspection
  • The need for company-specific information on the production and testing procedure
  • The date for the inspection including suggestions for the schedule and statement of the cost.

The fee of conformity inspections (CoP-Q) is EUR 716.00 per process plus travelling expenses.
