The RDW works closely together with a wide range of technical services all over the world. These technical services are designated to conduct tests on behalf of the type-approval authorities for specific (or all) EC and ECE approvals.
Special stipulations related to technical services are included in Directive 2007/46/EC and Agreement 1958 of the ECE.
The following technical services have been designated and registered by the RDW:
- Overview of accepted technical services per EU-member state EC
- Overview of accepted technical services per EU-member stat ECE
If you are a designated technical service and you would like to get test results and certificates approved, you can submit your application here. If you only wish to apply for new approval numbers in order to submit certificates in the future, please make a request for these numbers through 'Reserve approval numbers'
