POINTS TO REMEMBER
Always consult a suitably qualified and appropriately appointed VEHICLE
CERTIFIER before a project is commenced as space around components and
assemblies are a vital consideration in system
designs and components are required to conform to recognised local
and international standards. This is important to remember when
embarking on a special project or even a simple
ask a suitably qualified engineer, designer or certifier to explain
aspects of the design that you are not sure of or are indeed
interested in. It is important for the certifier to be able to
explain all considerations in the design.
