THE SOCIETY of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) is going on the road next year to host a series of workshops that will help businesses get to grips with European Whole Vehicle Type Approval.

Organised in collaboration with the Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA) and the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA), these workshops are applicable to body builders and convertors of Category O types (trailers) and Category N (light, medium and heavy trucks).

Taking place at locations across Great Britain in February 2013, the workshops will cover how to obtain approval quickly and easily, with guidance from experts and companies that have already achieved approval.

"European Whole Vehicle Type Approval is a vital part of getting a motor vehicle or trailer on the road as it ensures that technical and safety standards are consistent across Europe," said Paul Everitt, SMMT Chief Executive. "Through these workshops, SMMT will help companies to get fully up-to-speed with the latest Type Approval Regulations, ensuring that they meet all legal requirements and can successfully sell their products."
