Paper Application

In order to reduce the ecological footprint, UV Assurance has decided not to reprint the paper applications. The paper version of May 2020 is therefore still valid.

To allow you to identify the sections affected by the new features, we have prepared a complementary document to the paper application. You can order the paper version of this addition in order to insert it into the current paper applications. However, this addition is not mandatory as it does not contain information. This is a guide to identify what’s new.

Consult the complementary document

The paper application can also be used in simplified issue with the 4 questionnaires above.
