Required deliverables to be provided by applicant:

  • 17-digit Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
  • Photo of the vehicle Manufacturer’s Label (located on driver’s door, B pillar or in engine compartment)
  • Copy of existing vehicle registration documents
  • Copy of vehicle owner’s ID card (e.g. copy of passport or driver’s license)
  • Company’s VAT number (If ordered by a company with a registered VAT number in the EU)
  • Shipping and billing address
  • Phone number of shipping address

Important notes before ordering the document:

  • Before ordering the statement and to determine the applicable price, please verify if the vehicle is a European Whole Vehicle Type Approved (WVTA) vehicle or not. WVTA vehicles are recognizable by the European Whole Vehicle Type Approval Number mentioned on the manufacturer’s plate/label. Please find here more information how to retrieve if the vehicle is European Whole Vehicle Type Approved.
  • The permissible masses data are determined according the market and legal requirements for which the vehicle originally has been manufactured. Consequently the permissible masses data applicable for a certain vehicle may differ from a similar vehicle manufactured for another region, due to differences in both legal requirements and testing conditions. The permissible masses for the vehicle requested may therefore be different than expected and make you aware of the possible consequences (towing/trailering restrictions etc.).
  • It is not possible to provide you the masses of the statement in advance. Several items will influence these data such as Engine type, Transmission type, Gear Ratios, Country of Origin and other equipped options. This data needs to be sourced first during the process of preparing the statement.
  • We cannot guarantee that your local authorities will accept the statement as the statement is according to the standards for which market the vehicles was built for. For example if your vehicle was built for the US market, it will receive a statement including masses according to the US standards. These standards do not correspond to the European standards.
