Whole Vehicle Type Approval, The Enhancement Scheme & Individual Vehicle Approval

Whole Vehicle Type Approval, The Enhancement Scheme & Individual Vehicle Approval

Further to confirmation from the Vehicle Certification Agency on 06.10.16, Penny Hydraulics can confirm that:

1. Cranes fitted internally into vans are out of scope of the Enhancement Scheme.

2.  Cranes fitted to chassis cabs are outside the scope of Whole Vehicle Type Approval if the Mass in Running Order of the vehicle is not increased by more than 3%. Mass in Running Order is the weight of the van or chassis cab as it left the factory including a full fuel tank and a nominal driver weight of 75kg. If the 3% is exceeded, the crane must be fitted post registration and is then classed as payload.

3. On fitting the crane, the installer must carry out overall/axle mass checks, stability calculations and supply a test certificate.

4. In the above cases, the vehicle does not require a further stage of Type Approval or Individual Vehicle Approval.
