3. Legal information
Legal information on the retrofitting of accessories.
The retrofitting of accessories may make an acceptance and registration obligation in the vehicle documents legally mandatory.
The general type approval of the vehicle expires through the installation of accessories subject to acceptance and registration if the acceptance of the accessory installation has not been carried out immediately by an officially recognised test facility in accordance with § 19 StVZO and confirmed in accordance with § 22 StVZO. The accessories must be entered in the vehicle documents.
Due to the fact that there are different registration documents and legal requirements, the following procedure should be followed with regard to the facts of the case:
For accessories with registration-free ABE (e.g. exterior parts):
The accessories are delivered with ABE and are registration-free. If the installation is carried out with other products from which an interaction can be caused, a change acceptance with costs can become necessary according to StVZO § 19.3 or § 19.2 in connection with § 21.
For accessories with non-registration-free ABE (e.g. alloy wheels):
These accessories will be supplied with an ABE. According to the KBA specifications, a chargeable modification acceptance is required.
If the installation is carried out with other parts which may interact with the accessory, an individual approval (StVZO § 19.2 in connection with § 21) may be required.
For accessories with part certificates (e.g. performance upgrade):
The accessories will be delivered with a parts certificate. A chargeable modification acceptance in accordance with StVZO 19.3 is mandatory, otherwise the vehicle’s operating licence expires. If the attachment/installation is carried out with other parts that may interact, the necessity of a chargeable individual approval (StVZO § 19.2 in conjunction with § 21) may arise.
For accessories subject to acceptance and registration without supplied approval documents (e.g. performance upgrades for export markets):
Even without a parts certificate, an registration in the vehicle documents is possible with an individual inspection at a recognised test institute for which a fee is charged. As the exact procedure and costs for an individual inspection vary from case to case, you should contact the relevant testing institute directly for details of the individual inspection in your case.
