Type-approval of on-board computers for taxis

On-board computers in taxis must have a type-approval and must comply with the requirements for (software) security. RDW is responsible for the type-approval and inspects whether the on-board computer complies with all the specified requirements.

Technical departments with a RDW Designation

The Specifications regulation (in Dutch)   states that the on-board computer must be tested. It is up to the manufacturer to determine which technical department is deployed to test the on-board computer for taxis. The technical department must have a RDW Designation and must conduct the prescribed tests in accordance with the ISO 17025 standard.
