Application Component Type-approval service

The Application Component Type-approval service (ACT) is part of OTAS and enables applicants to create a digital application for an R30 type-approval. This can then be sent to the RDW, where the application is assessed much more efficient, leading to faster issuing of the certificate.


An application for an R30 type-approval requires a large number of properties and test results to be provided. ACT allows the user to specify values for each attribute. To this end, the attributes are grouped by topic and for each topic a page is provided, prompting the applicant to enter the correct values. After completing all pages, the request can be checked by the applicant and the digital application can be generated.  

Please note that once you have applied for a type approval through OTAS, all following applications of this type approval should be submitted through OTAS as well to prevent gaps in the series of extensions.
