Help menu within ERATV application Dear users, for your information, the help menu that you can access via the button "Help", located at the top right, it is not maintained and only covers the registration regime Directive 2008/57/EC. We invite you instead to consult the ERATV page at our website which contains the up-to-date manual and the ERATV application guide for registration regime Directive (EU) 2016/797 among others useful information. The page is located at: https://www.era.europa.eu/registers_en#eratv
Updates of "References of the EC type examination certificates" to be treated as modifications instead of error corrections. In accordance with Decision 2011/665/EU, Annex I, 5, ERATV allows, on published vehicle type authorisations, for: - Modifications: Modification, at the request of an authorising entity, of information of the registered vehicle type authorisation previously published which needs to be changed. This is for the cases when the issued authorisation was modified and therefore the ERATV record needs to be updated accordingly. - Error correction: Transmitted or published data that do not correspond to the given authorisation for type of vehicle. Modification of authorisation does not fall under this definition. This is for the cases where the issued authorisation has not been modified, but a typographical error has been detected in the ERATV record. We have detected cases where the update of the "References of the EC type examination certificates" are treated as an error correction, which would not be aligned with the above. Therefore, we would invite you to treat these changes as modifications from now on.
ERATV technical user support Technical user support for ERATV is exclusively provided to the entities acting as Authorising Entities in their process of submitting data in ERATV. Applicants for vehicle (type) authorisation are invited to contact their relevant Authorising Entity. Further information about ERATV, including the user manual, is located at the ERA webpage at: https://www.era.europa.eu/registers_en#eratv
