1. Examination of dossiers

- Check the compliance in terms of competence to appraise the modified motor vehicle designs.

- Check and compare specifications of the pre-modified motor vehicle with the vehicle database (original information of the vehicle such as import, manufacture or assembly, current information of the vehicle, history of change of specifications, if any).

- Check the modifications and compare with regulations on modification of motor vehicles specified in Article 4 of this Circular.

- Check the completeness and validity of the modified motor vehicle acceptance dossier in accordance with Clause 1 Article 10 of this Circular.

2. Acceptance

- Check general identification: Check shape, structure, shape, brand, type number; license plate, chassis number, engine number, vehicle type.

- Inspect whether the motor vehicle is modified according to design dossiers that have been appraised satisfactorily or according to the provisions of this Circular for cases exempt from preparing modified motor vehicle design dossiers. - During the examination, the following principles must be ensured:

+ Check basis specifications specified in Section 6 of the factory acceptance record of the modified motor vehicle;

+ Check the items changed due to the modification;

+ In case the accepting agency does not have weighing equipment or the mass weighing equipment fails to meet requirements of the measurement law, it is allowed to use the weighing results of the facility with the function of weighing vehicle mass distributed on each axle as a basis for conclusions. In this case, the acceptance registrar must save these results in the vehicle's acceptance dossier and make notes in the acceptance record;

+ Tolerances in size and mass during the inspection process shall comply with QCVN 12:2011/BGTVT - National technical regulation on permitted tolerance and rounding of vehicle dimension and mass.

- Check the location and installation of complete components, systems, and details related to modification.

- Check the quantity and quality of joints, assembly details, and fasten them according to design dossier.

- Check materials and details used in modification according to design requirements.

- Check technical safety, environmental protection and the working of systems and complete components; typical and special-use equipment after modification according to regulations.

- Inspect and evaluate according to regulations on inspection of technical safety and environmental protection of motor vehicles.

- Check other related content (if any).

3. Conclusion

- Prepare and print a Minute of inspection of technical safety and environmental protection of the modified motor vehicle (the working volume or engine power is not required to be included in the Minutes).
 

- If the acceptance results are qualified, print and issue a  certificate of technical safety and environmental protection for the modified motor vehicle to organization or individual.
