What is the EU type approval certificate?
All road vehicles less than 3.5 tonnes registered after May 2007 can only be legally fitted with a front bar which has been designed to comply with European safety laws and crash tested to make sure it is pedestrian friendly. Fitting a non EU tested bar is illegal and unsafe. If you fit one and have an accident – you are on your own and you and the company that you bought it from could be explaining to a Coroner why you decided to break the law – and you will have to face the consequences.
Buy a legal EU bar and you will have none of these issues. This is an EC safety standard which means that your A-Bar is legal and has been crash tested to comply with European pedestrian safety standards and laws. You may notice other sellers telling you that you can only fit them for off-road use or as a replacement part (as long as it is before 25th May 2007). But with these certificates it means you can fit these without any issues with your insurance, your MOT or with the law. The police can see from their data base or your reg plate that your vehicle is newer than 2007 – they can lawfully ask to see the EU certificate for your bar or can check to see the EU data plate that has to be on all legal bars. So you actually get a physical certificate which can be shown to authorities etc to show that the bar is legal.
A safety compliant front bar is actually safer in the event of pedestrian impact than a vehicle without a front bar fitted as the design is to lessen leg injuries. This is only the case with front bars designed for and crash tested under EU safety directives. If you fit an illegal front bar and have an accident that causes injury then your insurance will be invalid. The UK law carries a maximum 10 year prison sentence and £20,000 fine for selling or fitting front bars without EU type approval.
