Independent operators (iOs) will need to get approval from a Conformity Assessment Body (CAB). The CAB is responsible for inspection of IOs and their employees according to this scheme, so that they can be approved and authorised to engage in security in the automotive sector.
For more information, please visit the website of the SERMI association (http://www.vehiclesermi.eu) to find the name(s) of Conformity Assessment Bodies which have been accredited and which are ready to receive your application. If there is more than one CAB showing per country you can choose the company you prefer.
If your country isn't listed it is not yet possible to request a SERMI certificate in your country.
