The VBTA was setup in 2013 as a way to simplify the route to Whole Vehicle Type Approval for bodybuilders. Rather than the individual bodybuilder suffer significant costs in gaining and managing the approvals, the VBTA would seek, hold and manage the many different approvals across the complete range of chassis manufacturers.
The manufacturing, quality assurance and conformity of production is undertaken by the individual bodybuilder but the actual approval management is completed by The VBTA. This therefore has allowed the bodybuilder members of The VBTA to save significant time and money with Whole Vehicle Type Approval and to offer their customers bodywork on the complete range of chassis manufacturer's vehicles.
