What is an Independent Certificate of Conformity?

It is a document available in various formats and languages, for different usages, that states vehicle particulars in relation to European Commission (EC) Type Approval standards, along with other important information and vehicle facts.

To enable you to fill in the UK V55/5 vehicle registration form the DVLA recommends you use a conformity document or 'CoC'. If you have lost your original CoC or bought a vehicle without a CoC, buy an independent CoC from us to help you fill-in your V55 form; or call us or E-Mail us if unsure.

 If you are taking a vehicle to an EU country from the UK, the authorities there will almost certainly require a document to ascertain type approval number status before you can register it there.

States Type Approval Number or status, if applicable.
States emissions rating (CO2), if applicable.
States TVV (Type, Variant and Version), also coded 'D2', if applicable.
UK - shows, line by line, how to fill in the UK V55/5 form, with details for your specific vehicle. Includes free telephone support and advice.


What is the Purpose of the ICOC?



UK: Perfect for absolute reference when filling in the UK V55/5 form. Will enable you to fill the form in.


UK: Not acceptable proof of European conformity for the DVLA in applications for vehicles less than 10 years old, without an IVA test pass (unless vehicle has been registered in the UK in the past).


UK: useful for transposing information about your vehicle when using other forms and procedures, such as the IVA Test application, MSVA Test application and the NOVA1 form. It can even be useful as a reference sheet at MOT stations for unregistered vehicles when the MOT tester creates a new record for a vehicles. 


FRANCE:  We recommend that in the first instance you try to obtain a manufacturer's ECWVTACOC. Since 21 June 2018 we have restricted our involvement in French Carte Grise applications to regular trade customers and repeat or recommended customers in France. We will only issue ICOC documents for use in France under certain circumstances. If you are a regular, trade or repeat customer, please click here.


FINLAND, NORWAY, ITALY, SPAIN, PORTUGAL, and other EU: Contains key information about the vehicle which is critical to registration in EU states (Type Approval number, emissions, etc.). We can also research and add data by research if required by registering authorities. 



Beyond the EU: Customers buy the ICOC for use with authorities all over the world ~ it is a handy document stating the key data and registration history of the vehicle. We have had acceptances and repeat business from Singapore, South Africa, Kenya, India, China, Russia, Turkey, Israel, New Zealand, Japan and the middle east.
