Certificate of Conformity (CoC) VK Bicycle Tralers.
The VK Bicycle Trailers have an European type approval. Certificate of conformity (CoC)
The COC document is a producer’s declaration that the vehicle complies with the given approved type. This document contains information about the vehicle and its producer’s identification, type approval number, technical specifications and other data. The content of a COC is defined by EU regulation (Amendment IX, Regulation 92/53).
The purpose of this document is to ensure the free movement of goods within the European Union, specifically for those goods that are subject to homologation and registration.
EU countries cannot refuse to register vehicles if they are accompanied by a valid CoC that proves their compliance with EU law. Vehicles with an EU type approval can be marketed anywhere in the European Community. Therefore, a vehicle only needs to receive the type approval certification in one EU country in order to be accepted in all of the other member countries.
The COC document must be present when the trailer is in use.
My bicycles have mudguards, how do I mount them on the VK bike carrier?
Specially developed hooks allow all bicycles with standard mudguards to be secured to the VK bike carrier. Refer to the product videos page for mounting instructions and a demonstration video.
How can I transport bicycles in my commercial van?
