Scrapped vehicles

The Swedish Transport Agency cannot approve applications for verification of origin for passenger cars or trucks under 3500 kilograms formerly registered in Sweden that have been scrapped with a certificate of destruction issued by a scrap firm as of the 1st of June 2007.

However, if a formerly registered vehicle has been scrapped with a certificate of destruction before the 1st of June 2007 and the vehicle is of a model year 30 years or older, there are no objections against an approval of the verification of origin.

Rebuilt or modified vehicles

If the vehicle has been rebuilt or modified and no longer conforms to its original design, the vehicle may instead be regarded as self-assembled.

These vehicles may require a certificate from the National Swedish Vehicle Builders’ Association (SFRO) or TESTA. Other documents may also be required to be attached to the application for verification of origin.

If you would like more information regarding this, please contact a vehicle inspection company.
