Brief: The Road Vehicle Standards Act 2018 (RVSA) has come into force on 1 July 2021. A component type approval is one of the options that may be used by applicants for a road vehicle type approval or approval of a Model Report to demonstrate compliance with applicable national road vehicle standards.
MANDATORY OR NOT?
A component type approval is not mandatory and is something that a manufacturer or supplier may choose to apply for.
However, having a component type approval demonstrates compliance with the applicable national road vehicle standards (ADRs) for vehicle components used in the manufacture or modification of a road vehicle.
BENEFITS OF COMPONENT TYPE APPROVAL
• Manufacturers can streamline their vehicle type approval application processes if they use components that already have a component type approval;
• Being able to confirm that your component/s comply with applicable national road vehicle standards, which is a positive selling point;
• Being able to provide products to the Australian market that are high quality, safe and environmentally sound.
HOW TO APPLY?
To apply for a component type approval, the applicant must first create an account in ROVER, and then need to complete the online application form in ROVER for a component type approval and pay the application fee. After the application is approved, the component type approval will be issued.
