In our Tuning Wikipedia have we already dealt extensively with what the General operating permit (ABE) is and also with that Teilegutachten we have already dealt with it. But where is that actually Difference between the two documents? An important point when it comes to tuning your own vehicle is that Safety of the assembled components. Therefore, depending on the changes and component (s), there will be numerous supporting documents needed that decide whether the vehicle will continue authorized remains. Because are the required papers unavailable, in the worst case scenario, both the Vehicle registration as well as the Insurance Cover go out. Different regulations apply depending on the tuning part. While in some cases a Teilegutachten is sufficient in other cases General operating permit (ABE) necessary for the vehicle parts. But how does the parts certificate differ from the ABE?

ABE: General operating permit for vehicle parts

General operating permit ABE approval tuning

Not every tuning component has to have a Teilegutachten exist. Instead, other certificates can be included with the component. In some cases these additional certificates are then sufficient without any problems, Especially the type approval as well as the General operating permit for vehicle parts (ABE) are such certificates. In this case, a combination of two of three documents is usually required. The abbreviation ABE is misleading in many cases. Because every type of vehicle has one own ABE. This ABE remains from the first registration and Deprivation or scrapping receive. Different aspects can lead to the withdrawal of the vehicle registration. For example Remodeling as well as serious defects. Modifications to the vehicle are particularly under Tuners popular. However, caution is advised here. Because it lies ABE of the assembled vehicle parts, then it may be that the vehicle's registration expires. This is why the Approval single components spoken when talking about the ABE at a hunt.

Also an existing one ABE certificate provides no guarantee for the admissibility of the tuning. Because it is quite possible that certain components may not be installed together. Such parts became anyway installed in combination, can the approval despite the present ABE go out. That is why it is definitely wise to seek advice from a reputable company beforehand expert to get advice. In addition to the ABE, in some cases a official report thats it!

Parts certificate: what is checked?

The Teilegutachten it works differently than with the General inspection, not about the Complete acceptance of the vehicle. Instead, the tuning measures are assessed with regard to different aspects:

  • The parts certificate itself
  • The issuance of a test certificate
  • Compliance with the guidelines
  • The functionality of the component and of the vehicle after its assembly

The Editing the tuning parts can be in the Registration certificate be entered. A visit to the responsible person is required Admissions office necessary on the testimony of the modification acceptance must be presented. As soon as the adjustments have been entered in the vehicle documents, it is no longer necessary to carry the test certificate (form) with you. However, this assumes that the vehicle documents be carried on every journey. If parts certificates and assembly are not submitted to the testing organization for testing, the operating license expires. Whether the construction work is generally permitted is included secondary.

The parts certificate is when tuning special meaning. Because should a component assembled be that just about one Teilegutachten then the assessment is usually carried out by a professional Exam Organization advised. This testing organization decides in each individual case whether the structural measure is permissible. After the assembly the Teilegutachten in combination with the structural change appraised. The Functionality the establishment checked. The decides whether the vehicle is still approved after the tuning modification acceptance. This is done by DEKRA, TÜV, KüS or GTI mittels Teilegutachten. With a certificate of admissibility, the structural change is usually in a Test certificate (Change acceptance certificate / form) entered. The vehicle owner must have this test certificate always carry it with you. This must be shown during controls so that the approval want to print their individual validity retains.

Difference between parts certificate and ABE?

The ABE can either on certain auto parts or on one Vehicle model to be issued. This testimony is supported by the Federal Motor Vehicle Office in Flensburg displayed. So it always contains one KBA number. Every part that with a ABE certificate is delivered, a listing will be sent to Vehicle modelsin which the Component installed will may. Following the tuning is a control through a expert unnecessary. That's the Main difference between Teilegutachten and ABE. Because while the assembled vehicle part must always be checked in the parts certificate, this is the case with the ABE not the case. When driving, however, it is fundamental necessary, this ABE to carry with you. If this is too cumbersome, that's too Registration in the Vehicle papers is possible.

Of course that had not been the case.
