REQUIREMENTS WHEN BODYBUILDING ON A SCANIA VEHICLE

BODYBUILDER REQUIREMENTS

All bodybuilding and conversions must be carried out in accordance with Scania’s bodywork instructions given on this website.​

If there is a need for a solution not covered in the Scania bodybuilding instructions, it is required to retrieve an approval from a Scania dealer before the bodybuilding or conversion starts.​

The dealer will apply to Scania for approval of the bodywork design. Approval is required in order for the factory warranty to apply. ​

This applies both for new and used vehicles.​

REQUIREMENTS FOR DOCUMENTED INSPECTION ​

For every bodybuilding and conversion work, the bodybuilder must certify that the bodywork and bodybuilding has been carried out in accordance with Scania’s bodybuilding instructions in order for the Scania factory warranty to apply.​

This can be done by using the  quality and safety inspection, as well as the declaration of conformity, available in the bodybuilder information.​

It is possible for bodybuilders to use their own inspection documentation after it has been approved by Scania.​

 

Declaration of Conformity

The DoC can be digitally signed with a mobile phone or printed and signed manually.

TUBES FOR EASY CABLE ROUTING INSIDE INSTRUMENT PANEL

All Scania vehicles are equipped with tubes meant for facilitating routing of bobybuilders cable harness inside the instrument panel. The protective tubes facilitate retrofitting of cable harnesses, which may be required for e.g. new switches. The protective tubes have an inner diameter of 16.6 mm. There is a slight difference between left-hand drive and right-hand drive vehicles in that the tube on righthand drive vehicles is split while it is one full length tube on left-hand drive.​

SCANIA CERTIFICATES​

Scania’s certificates are valid for trucks with Scania components fitted in a final position by a Scania factory or by a manufacturer appointed by Scania. The transport-mounted parts are connected to Scania’s component certificates and need to have installation certificate arranged by the bodybuilder.​

The bodybuilder is responsible for the vehicle’s bodywork and conversions. This means that application and receipt of final approval, certification or agreement with the certification authority is administered by the bodybuilder.
