Multi-stage Type Approvals
Multi-stage Type Approvals are appropriate when incomplete vehicles are to be completed, for example, with a chassis frame from a further manufacturer. Multi-stage Type Approval procedure is complex and requires good coordination between the manufacturers of the various stages.
More detailed information on the multi-stage procedure can be found in the Information sheet Multi-stage Type Approvals for vehicles (currently being updated but applicable in principle).
The multi-stage Type Approval procedure mostly requires individual case consultations.
