EUROPEAN COMMUNITY WHOLE VEHICLE TYPE APPROVAL
SB Components currently have in excess of 50 National and European approvals in place, covering around 150 Base Approvals across most major manufacturers.
As a company, we work closely with the Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA) ensuring our ever growing range of approvals are continuously updated in line with the manufacturer’s base approvals to ensure all products and services that we offer are fully compliant with the latest legislative requirements.
We have a range of approved Assembly Plants throughout the UK & Ireland as well as a dedicated `WVTA Team` who oversee our conformity of production systems, ensuring that all the products we provide continue to comply with all of the necessary legislation.
CRANE AND BODYFITMENTS, WHEELBASECONVERSIONS,FUEL TANKS ANDSAFETYCAMERA INSTALLATIONS
We are UKAS accredited to ISO 9001:2015 and maintain Conformity of Production (CoP) approval from the VCA. Our stringent quality systems are regularly audited by both the VCA and BSI to ensure continued compliance with the relevant standards.
As well as the software solutions that have been developed and introduced to meet the new regulations, SB Components has invested heavily in resources, including a sophisticated dynamic weighbridge which allows us to complete the entire process in-house with minimal vehicle movement.
We also have specialised equipment such as calibrated Headlamp Alignment facilities which enable us to check and adjust factory installed components prior to an IVA test.
The process for registering vehicles under the "SB" type approval banner is both simple and efficient. Completed paperwork is submitted to our customers with the option of "complete" and "incomplete" second or third stage COC Certificates including the fitment of a required Stat plate to adhere to the WVTA guidelines.
Due to our extensive range of type approved products, we can also offer the solution to multi-stage approvals as well as Individual Vehicle Approvals (IVA).
Crane and body fitments, wheelbase conversions, fuel tanks and safety camera installations are just a few examples of conversions that can be type-approved under one "approval umbrella", offering a total vehicle solution to our customers.
