Why WDT Services
The homologation of vehicles or vehicle components under local and European legislation demands increasingly specific knowledge of legislation and the vehicles themselves. As vehicle systems become more and more complex with respect to safety and road holding, legislation has grown in complexity and extent. In addition, vehicles are required to undergo one or more practical tests, for which test equipment and facilities are required. In real terms this means that obtaining and/or producing a homologation document is very time-consuming.
All of which makes type approval a costly, specialist and time-consuming process.
