COP & TYPE APPROVAL
Every vehicle manufacturer, converter and commercial bodybuilder is legally obliged to obtain and maintain Conformity of Production (CoP). This CoP is evidence of ability to produce a series of products that all match same specification and performance. Automotive directives and regulation recognize only independent (3rd party) assessments and certification!
The product specifications as such are then recorded by individual vehicle type approval. At Tipmaster we use designated UK Vehicle Type Approval authority to test and certify our products and procedures. We are holders of approval for most of the current chassis makes and models available on UK market, so our customers have always option to choose what suits best for their needs.
