French vehicle type approval is a system based on EU vehicle certification, supplemented by small series vehicle type approval and individual vehicle type approval. Specifically, France's vehicle certification is divided into four types: EC whole vehicle type approval, EC small series vehicle type approval, small series vehicle national type approval, and individual vehicle type approval. EC whole vehicle type approval and EC small series vehicle type approval are EU vehicle type approval.Small series vehicle national type approval is mainly for models that are not covered by the EU vehicle type approval. Individual vehicle type approval is available for a new vehicle entering France and a modified vehicle registered in France.In France, no matter which type of certification is chosen, the inspection of the automobile regulations in the certification process needs to be carried out by the French government authorized automobile inspection agency. For vehicle manufacturers, the appropriate certification model should be selected according to the export plan to save time and cost.

French vehicle type approval supervision and enforcement agencies include: Ministry of Ecological and Solidarity Transition, AFNOR, the French Automobile Standardization Bureau and UTAC.
