Type approval is the system whereby the vehicle, its components or systems can be tested and approved for compliance with standards. UK tests are done by or on behalf of the Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA). Type approval schemes have been in force in parts of Europe for many years to check parts and systems on new vehicles before registration. The aim now is to produce a common European Union scheme with the same standards.
