In fact, the vehicle type approval represents a list of basic technical transport characteristics, description of marking, and a list of corresponding standards and requirements. The vehicle having the VTA conforms to the rules of the UNECE and has a right to be officially exploited on the territory of the Russian Federation.
The Certification Center "RESPECT" has been accredited to issue vehicle type approval for all categories of vehicles including:
