Type Approval

Vehicle Type Approval is the process by which trailers, their systems and components are approved to the appropriate National, European environmental and safety standards. Without it trailers cannot be sold or registered in the UK.

Excel Trailers Ltd has successfully achieved EC Whole Vehicle Type Approval (ECWVTA) for the complete trailer product range with VCA as the testing authority. VCA is an Executive Agency of the United Kingdom Department for Transport and the United Kingdom’s national approval authority for new road vehicles.

ECWVTA is the highest standard achievable which allows Excel Trailers Ltd to self-certify trailers at our manufacturing facility in Hertfordshire. ECWVTA has the added advantage of allowing us to export trailers throughout Europe, without the need for customers to further register their trailers.

Further information about Type Approval can be found on the Department for Transport website or contact us on 01279 42 22 27
