European Whole Vehicle Type Approval

16th May 2013



McCauley Trailers is pleased to announce that all of the Category O4 Commercial trailers under its MAC Trailers brand have been granted full European Whole Vehicle Type Approval.

European Whole Vehicle Type Approval is a system allowing a vehicle design to be "type approved" for sale, registration and entry into service across all member states in the EU without the need for further testing in each country. This process provides a mechanism for ensuring that vehicles meet relevant European environmental, safety and security standards. Each trailer is issued with a Certificate of Conformity and is ready to register in each European member state.

All major components and design aspects of our trailers have been tested and inspected; from couplings at the front to crash bars at the rear; and everything in between!

Our thanks to VCA - Vehicle Certification Agency; the UK Approval Authority and Technical Service for Type Approval; for all of their hard work and assistance these past months.
