Not every vehicle is allowed to participate in Belgian traffic just like that. There are, of course, various conditions attached to this. In the first place, you must request an approval certificate from the Belgian government. In addition, there are other matters that you need to arrange. We understand that this can be complicated for you. This certainly applies to people who have no experience with the procedures. Fortunately, we can help you homologate the car.
But what exactly is homologation and how can we support you? Read more below.
What does homologation mean and what are the general requirements?
The Belgian government tries to prevent traffic accidents as much as possible, which is why there are strict requirements for new vehicles. All vehicles and vehicle parts imported from abroad must meet strict requirements. Otherwise they may not be used on public roads. In this type of inspection, it is checked whether the vehicles meet the technical and administrative requirements. These include the requirements drawn up by the European Union.
When you have car homologation is basically sent to three general matters looked.
1) The safety
Safety must of course be paramount. This is not only relevant for the driver, but also for the safety of other road users. The first thing to look at is the brakes. Do they meet the strict technical requirements? If this is not the case, the vehicle may be rejected. The seat belts and tires are also checked.
You will undoubtedly have noticed the climate problems. Today we live in difficult times and everyone has to contribute to a better climate in Belgium. This also applies to the government and therefore vehicles must also meet various environmental requirements. The emission of polluted particles and gases is therefore also examined during the inspection. In addition, there are of course also rules regarding the sound. A vehicle may not cause noise nuisance.
3) Looking at the internal market
All European member states must meet the strict requirements of the European Union. So not only the Belgian rules are looked at, but also whether the vehicle complies with the rules of the European Union.
