IVA, Type Approval and Competitor Scaremongery
Minibus World is able to provide minibus products that are IVA Type Approved where required.
Minibus World’s seat belt anchorage system meets IVA (Individual Vehicle Approval) and NSSTA (National Small Series Type Approval) regulations. A seat belt anchorage system effectively keeps the seats in the vehicle and person in the seat in the event of impact. It is therefore probably the most important safety-critical element of vehicle manufacturing.
Our seat belt anchorage system has undergone an in-vehicle pull test by pulling them to the equivalent horizontal force that would be produced by hanging 1.5 tonnes (a small car) out of the window!
Our system meets the above IVA and NSSTA regulations and was witnessed by the VCA (Vehicle Certification Agency). This is the Executive Agency of the UK Department for Transport that approves all road-going vehicles for use in the UK, including your own car.
Our personal approach, lead times, product quality and customer service along with our understanding of customer needs mean that we gain significant repeat business and referrals. We don’t have to resort to the scaremongering and general denigrating of competitors products that is sometimes present in our industry.
We build minibuses to various Type Approval regulations such as IVA or COIF and are happy to advise you on your own particular requirements.
If you have any queries or concerns regarding vehicle safety, Type Approval or IVA / NSSTA or indeed any aspect of owning, running, financing or leasing a minibus please do not hesitate to get in touch.
