Western Europe Prospects For U.S. Specialty Products

About this product:

United States specialty product suppliers can succeed with marketing and sales efforts in the vast—168 million registered vehicles—European market. But given the differences in the European marketplace in terms of vehicle mix, consumer preferences and government regulation, it is not enough for American companies to simply ship merchandise primarily
designed for U.S. vehicles to outlets in Europe, sit back and expect volume sales on a scale comparable to that which is established in the States. For some companies, those with appropriate products and applications, Europe is and could increasingly become a lucrative sales arena. (For the purposes of this report, the following countries are included in the definition of Western Europe: the fifteen EU countries: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Ireland, Luxemburg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom; plus Iceland, Norway and Switzerland.)

United Kingdom Approval Process for Imported Automobiles and Motorcycles

About this product:

Automobiles manufactured in the United States generally need some adaptation to meet the requirements of UK regulations relating to the design and construction of vehicles intended for use on British roads. The most obvious difference, right-hand versus lefthand drive, is not a regulatory issue, but other conventions including the color of turn signals, the aim of dipped headlights, and in some cases, the protrusion of tail pipes, tow hitches, and front bull bars can be a problem that demands remedial action before an Approval Certificate can be issued, permitting the vehicle to be registered and used on the public roads.

United Kingdom Specialty Automotive Aftermarket

About this product:

The U.K. market, the fourth largest in Western Europe, is also one of the easiest markets in Western Europe for SEMA-member companies to gain a foothold. The lack of language barriers and the relatively regulation-free environment
regarding vehicle customization form a basis for exploring the market. These two factors, coupled with a sizable and growing
portion of British consumers who seek to personalize their vehicles, make the U.K. market attractive for specialty equipment
companies.

European Union - EU - Automotive Framework Legislation

About this product:

This market research report covers regulatory requirements applicable to cars and car components to be exported to the European Union (EU) based on the new Motor Vehicle Framework Directive 2007/46/EC (MVFD). The recently adopted MVFD takes an important step towards further regulatory harmonization and broadens the scope of existing legislation, extending approval requirements to nearly all road vehicles. Its changes do not immediately enter into force; instead, a phased-in enforcement period exists, stretching from April 2009 to October 2014 depending on the category of vehicle in question. In the meantime, existing directive 70/156/EEC and amendments remain in force.
