of passenger cars


ATEEL is notified as a Technical Service for all relevant legal acts for the approval of passenger cars.

Legal basis

The Framework Directive 2007/46/EC and its subsequent Regulation (EU) 2018/858 lay down all the requirements that a manufacturer must meet in the course of a type approval procedure. In addition to passenger cars in categories M1 (passenger car with up to 9 seats), M2 (minibus with more than 9 seats up to 5000kg) and M3 (bus with more than 9 seats over 5000kg), the regulation applies in particular also to commercial vehicles (category N) and trailers (category O).
