What is a Certificate of Conformity (COC)?

This is an official document issued for all vehicles built to be sold and registered within the European Union. It confirms the vehicle has been tested and meets EU Type Approval Standards.

The Certificate of Conformity is unique to each vehicle and contains various technical specifications of the vehicle at the time of manufacture.

All Certificates of Conformity are supplied in German as standard and cannot be produced in any other language. This does not affect its validity and it will be recognised by all European Community countries for vehicle registration purposes.
