SP appointed as a Technical Service for vehicle components

The Swedish Transport Agency has appointed SP as a Technical Service for vehicle components. This means that our tests can be used as a basis for an application for a Type Approval from the Swedish Transport Agency. We can also perform initial inspections and conformity of production assessments for vehicle components.


The following is a list of the regulations/directives for which we are appointed.
