Conformity of Production (CoP)

This page was last updated on 13th October 2021

Conformity of Production (CoP) is a means of evidencing the ability to produce a series of products that exactly match the specification, performance and marking requirements outlined in the type approval documentation.  Whether you are a manufacturer, or the agent applying for approvals on behalf of a manufacturer, and whatever your product is, suitable CoP arrangements must be made.

GB Scheme Conformity of Production

Conformity of Production (CoP) clearance will be required to be held directly with VCA for the introduction of the Full Scheme.  Please take a look at our Question and Answer section for current details on the requirements.

Register for our GB Conformity of Production (CoP) workshop

We are pleased to inform you that we will be holding four sessions in November to highlight the Conformity of Production requirements for the GB Type Approval Scheme.

Sessions 1-3 will be held online through Microsoft Teams, while the fourth Session is intended to be an in-person event subject to the COVID-19 guidance at that time. We will share the details of the location shortly, however we can confirm the workshop will be held in the UK. The content will be same for each session, and they will be taking place at various times of day to allow the maximum number of people to join us.

The ‘Introduction to Conformity of Production’ Webinar/Workshop will provide a basic introduction to CoP and what its purposes are. The ‘GB Scheme Conformity of Production’ Webinar/Workshop will provide details specifically of the GB requirements and the process for working with VCA. You do not have to attend both topics if you do not want to. In both sessions, time will be set aside for questions, and it will be possible to submit a question in advance of the session through the registration form. Any questions submitted will be collated and worked through during the sessions.

We look forward to seeing you there. Please click the relevant link below to register for your preferred session.
