Hello Paul and Welcome..

My name is XXXXX XXXXX Im happy to help you..

I do note that you say you have contacted Ford customer service and Vosa ( now known as DVSA ).. I dont know at all of course because you haven't said, what they have said to you or turned you away if they did..

But generally , anyone needing a COC should contact Ford dept on [email protected] or, you may as its a van , need to [email protected]

Thats the normal route - but if you need , get back to me and we can look further -

There is another route too - check that out HERE

Let me know how you get on Paul - or if you need anything else at all...

Kind Rgds - MIKE.

Thanks for you response I have [email protected] [email protected]
And also euro coc but they say there is not a certificate of conformity in existance,
The problem I have is these' s vans were built for electric vans like I said in my previous text but the company went bust and the van were sold off without the engines in.
Ford are saying there is nothing they can do and cannot/won't issue a certificate because they did not build it as it was Azure Dynamics .
I even tried the IVA (independent vehicle assessment ) with Vosa and they refused to look at it due to not having a certificate of conformity and it being a mass produced vehicle.
I have been trying for 9 months trying to get registered hitting my head against a brick wall everytime, ford just don't want to supply any paper work for the van at all.
Is there any other routes to go down I.e is there a test/ vehicle examination that ford can do to give me a certificate?
Any help is appreciated .

Regards Paul
