The On-Board Mass (OBM) System Functional and Technical Specification may be used for the following broad purposes:

  • For providers assessing current OBM System offered to consumers

  • For providers of OBM Systems applying for type-approval

  • For consumers assessing current OBM Systems (already fitted to vehicles)

  • For consumers comparing different OBM Systems (when procuring new OBM Systems)

    Note: TCA cannot and does not make any representation that OBM Systems that have not been type-approved by TCA satisfy the requirements of the Specification. It is solely the responsibility of the user to satisfy themselves whether a non-type approved OBM System meets the Specification and that the provider  is a legitimate business with sufficient financial standing.

  • For consumers entering into business arrangements with providers of OBM Systems (by demanding that OBM Systems satisfy the requirements of the Specification when preparing tenders and contracts)

Alternatively, consumers can purchase OBM Systems that have been type-approved by TCA.

A Certificate of Conformance for each type-approved OBM System will be made available by the provider (or associated agent, distributor or retailer) at the point of supply to consumers of each OBM System.
