Basis for the issuing of a type-approval are normally:
- A once only initial assessment of the future type-approval holder by the KBA, whereby no type-approval can be issued without an initial assessment
- Application of the applicant
- Manufacturer’s description of the approval object
- Test report from a designated technical service on the approval object
In a few cases (e.g. special approvals for end-of-series or warehouse vehicles and according to the directive 97/68/EC) special requirements must be observed. These are combined under “special approvals”.
