October 29th 2011 saw the introduction of new European Community Whole Vehicle Type Approval (ECWVTA) regulation for all minibuses.
Red Kite manufacture and supply a range of quality fully Type Approved 9 – 17 minibuses as regulated by the Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA) who are the designated UK Approval Authority and Technical Service for type approval to all automotive European Community (EC) Directives and the equivalent United Nations Economic Community for Europe (ECE) Regulations. Vehicle Type Approval is the confirmation that production samples of a design will meet specified performance standards. Visit www.dft.gov.uk for more specific information about vehicle type approval.
All new minibuses must have a certificate of approval and compliance as administered by the VCA. If in doubt, ask to see your documentation prior to delivery from your supplier, as a minibus without a certificate of approval and compliance could go undetected until presented for its first class 5 MOT test.
