In addition to providing type approval technical and approval authority services, we can also provide copies of all automotive European Community and UN ECE legislation in a number of ways.
The information is available either as ‘one-off’ individual Word or PDF formatted documents, or as part of an integrated library package – VISTA (VCA’s Information Service for Type Approval).
We are now able to supply interested customers with up to the minute information on key dates associated with the legislation though our LegStat system. Follow the links below for more information on each of these solutions.
LegStat is an online service that is our radar on proposed and draft legislation. VISTA is an electronic library of EU and UN Type Approval Legislation that is available either online or on a DVD-Rom.
