COC documents

A Certificate of Conformity or COC document, is an offical document of a vehicle. This document contains 52 technical points and is available for almost every European vehicle that is built after 1996. The document has different names. The official term is a Certificate of Conformity, but it is also called a CVO or a birth certificate. Not to be mistaken for a Certificate of Origin, which has almost the same abbreviation (COO).

Why a COC?

This document often simplifies the import / export process of a vehicle. The Dutch registration card in combination with the export form (part 2) is often not sufficient enough when re-registering a car. In this case, a COC document can be requested when it is not already present at the car. The document shows that the vehicle meets the statutory admission requirements.


In order to request a COC document, we require the following data:

  • Copy of the registration papers
  • Copy of your ID
  • Invoice (optional)

The price, availability and the delivery time of the document is always on request. After we have received the required documents, we will check whether we can provide you with the document.

Requesting a COC document

Cargo International can provide you with a COC document, when your vehicle doesn’t have one. The availability of the documents depends on the brand and type of the vehicle.
