All Trailers are European Type Approved
Over the last 12 years all at Phoenix Trailers Ltd have been working very hard to supply the very best quality to our customers by having all our trailers conform and be European Type Approved since 2013. We are extremely pleased to be able to inform you that ALL our trailers have now been granted ECWVTA (European Community Whole Vehicle Type Approval) status.
So what does this actually mean you may be wondering? Let us answer this as best we can;
European Community Whole Type Approval (ECWVTA) directive is the most expensive, time consuming and complex as far as trailer manufacturer is concerned. We have completed this as its by far the best end result for customers and indeed end users. When a trailer reaches this standard all that is needed is each trailer has a single piece of paper given to the customer at the point of sale, this is called a EC COC (European Community Certificate of Conformity).
A condition of acheiving this level of Approval status means that all our trailer design have to conform to each and every aspect of the individuals directives (of which there are many!) also a government body comes in and scrutinizes in great detail our production systems to ensure our production conforms to what the design requirements specifies. As a result of this external detailed assessment we have been accredited with a ‘Conformance of Production (COP)‘ Certification.
Now, even though we have this standard we still wanted to go the extra mile for our customers, so alongside doing this directive we also achieved BS EN ISO 9001:2008 status !
