What is individual vehicle approval?

Individual vehicle approval consists in testing a new, not registered vehicle, which does not carry a certificate of conformity (CoC) at the current stage of vehicle completion. Such vehicle should meet the relevant technical requirements of the Regulation of the Ministry of Transport, Construction and Maritime Economy (Journal of Laws of 2015 item 148 with further amendments), Regulation (EU) 167/2013 (cat. T, R, C) and Regulation (EU) 168/2013 (cat. L). Testing is carried out for a vehicle, which has not obtained EC/EU type-approval certificate or type-approval certificate, or which, prior to registration, has undergone significant design changes that violate the previously obtained approval certificate. Individual approval allows the vehicle to be registered (identified by its VIN) and put into service within the territory of the Republic of Poland.
The authority issuing the decision on individual vehicle approval, based on the tests carried out by BOSMAL Automotive Research and Development Institute, as an authorized entity, is the Transport Technical Supervision in Poland.
Specification of the full scope of tests required for individual vehicle approval and definition of the necessary documents, requires individual agreement with the customer, therefore, the scope of works and scope of documentation to be provided is specified on the individual basis.
