EU Certificate of Conformity/ Technical Data Sheet.

Good day,

I've imported my FJ from Dubai to UK where it has now passed it's IVA test and is on UK plates, at some point I will re-export the car to Italy and hopefully register on Italian plates.

One of the requirements to register the FJ in Italy is that a CoC is provided which confirms the EU Directives the FJ has been manufactured to. As the FJ is only available here in Europe as a Grey-Import this CoC does not technically exist. What I do have is a letter from Toyota confirming which Gulf Standards it has been manufactured to, but there is no comparable EU Standards.


My questions is, does such a document exist i.e. CoC or Technical Data Sheet for the American models, and if so would someone be willing to share this with me?

Thanks is advance,
T

Re: EU Certificate of Conformity/ Technical Data Sheet.

No there will be no CoC other than that for the country of original destination. There will be no such document for Europe since Toyota do not manufacture the vehicle for the European market. My guess is that you may have to submit the vehicle for an IVA equivalent in Italy if they do not accept the GB registration document as European approval.

An American document, such as I had for my vehicle will not help as it will not be applicable to your vehicle which is not US specification. Any such document is against a VIN.

Re: EU Certificate of Conformity/ Technical Data Sheet.

HalfPint, thanks for the response,

My understanding is there is no IVA equivalent in Italy other than a technical check similar to the UK MoT.

What the Italian's look for is a paper-trail. I've yet to approach the Italian authorities and ask if they will accept the GB registration document as European approval. But from what I can gather from here Norme generali per richiedere l'Immatricolazione di Veicoli provenienti da Stati esteri - Gran Bretagna
some form of Technical Data Sheet is still required.

Re: EU Certificate of Conformity/ Technical Data Sheet.

If you need just a technical data sheet then I would suggest the sales brochure? If there isn't one for UAE then download from RSA since that does have all the emissions etc listed.

Republic of South Africa - maybe? They sold FJ's in South Africa - not sure if they still do.

Ask from T‹V Germany or Austria. I've ordered one 4.5 years ago.
