|Due to more severe requirements of regulations the validity of type-approvals of vehicles that do not comply with these requirements will expire. Consequently, such vehicles can no longer be registered, unless these have been reported as “End-of-series” by the manufacturer or manufacturer‘s representative, and have been marked as “End-of-series” by the registering authority. During a fixed, limited period, registration can take place in the country in which the request for “End-of-series” was made.
