Vehicle Weighing Solutions’ (VWS) bin weighing and onboard weighing systems are now approved to comply with the Whole Vehicle Type Approval (WVTA) regulations.
This means that body-builders can add a VWS system to their vehicles without it requiring further testing.
The WVTA regulations came into force on 29 October 2014. As part of the approval regime, electromagnetic capability has to be addressed for any electrical components that are added to the vehicle and that are operational when the vehicle is in motion.
Julian Glasspole, managing director at VWS, said: “This approval means that bodybuilders that used the individual vehicle approval route to register vehicles can add our weighing systems without worrying about WVTA. Our kit is already compliant.”
