Alarm certificate for your motor home; what does it involve?

The moment a Kiwa SCM approved security system is installed in your camper, it will be registered in the Kiwa SCM database. You will then receive a CCV vehicle security certificate. CCV stands for Centre for Crime Prevention and Safety. The certificate serves as proof for the insurance company that your vehicle is secured with an approved security system.

If the insurer requires your vehicle to have an approved safety system, check whether you have the corresponding certificate and whether it is still valid.

Check if your certificate is still valid

How can you find out if the certificate of your vehicle is still valid? You can check this via this link. You enter your license plate number and you will see whether an SCM certificate is registered for this license plate number. You can also see immediately what the validity of your certificate is.

Period of validity of the certificate

The certificate is valid for 36 months from the date of issue. This applies to passenger cars, motorbikes, two-wheelers and campers. After these 36 months, the security system mustbe re-inspected every12 months. This is done by an installation company of CCV Vehicle Security. If the result of the inspection is positive, you will receive a 'Certificate of Certification' as proof that your security system has been inspected and is functioning properly. You will not receive a new certificate.

What should I do if my camper is not yet certified?

Does your motorhome not yet have a certificate and it is required? Then contact a CCV vehicle security installation company. On the Kiwa website, you can search for installation companies that certify vehicles and perform periodic inspections of your security system when your certificate has expired.
A certificate is issued when an installation company has checked and approved the operation of the system. Then the recognizable CCV vehicle security sticker is placed on the windows of the vehicle. This way, potential thieves see that the car is equipped with a Kiwa SCM approved system and are more likely to leave the vehicle.

Would you like to receive a notification when your certificate expires?

You will not always receive an automatic reminder when your certificate expires. Would you like to receive an e-mail when your certificate expires? Then you can request a notification by using your e-mail address and your certificate number.

What are the consequences of no (valid) certificate?

If your motor home does not have an approved security system, this can have major consequences. Insurance companies are increasingly demanding a well secured motor home. A KIWA SCM certificate is proof of security. If you want to claim damages from burglary or car theft on the car insurance, but it turns out that the alarm requirements have NOT been met, an additional excess may be applied or the insurance may not pay out at all.
