Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: EU general type approval number, sales type and sales or trade designation

The designations below are only applicable for VW vehicles
Since 1.1.1998, all passenger cars licensed within the European Union must have a type approval corresponding to EU guidelines. Vehicles licensed for road use with single-vehicle approval according to § 21 StVZO in Germany are excepted.
This means the same guidelines apply to all vehicle manufacturers. This makes it easier to trade across national borders within the EU.
The COC document contains the EU general type approval number and detailed technical information on the vehicle such as emissions classification and all the permitted wheel and tyre combinations → Chapter.
