What is a COC Duplicate?

Almost all manufacturers in Europe deliver the vehicles with a COC document (COC = Certificate of Conformity). This document is something like the birth certificate of the vehicle, it contains all the technical information and information required for registration. On this basis (for example in Germany) the registration certificate part I and part II are created. This is the manufacturer's COC (also known as the EC Certificate of Conformity).

Should this original document be lost, a duplicate can always be created. The prerequisite for an issue of this duplicate is that the corresponding vehicle was produced in accordance with EC type approval.
