MVP application details

Become an MVP company or renew your status. NTEA Manufacturer and Distributor members are encouraged to apply for consideration. 

Take the first step. Complete an MVP application form and attach the required documentation. There is no application fee. Upon reviewing each submission, NTEA will provide a status update. Companies that achieve MVP status will be announced on a quarterly basis across NTEA and public communications, including a press release to key trade media.

NTEA underwrites the cost of MVP as part of an ongoing effort to enhance the core competencies of its members.
When going through the MVP application process, consider the following resources.

What’s new?
In an effort to improve the Member Verification Program, the requirements of the program have been updated, starting Jan. 1, 2021.  Highlighting the changes are

  • Optional criteria for environmental or sustainability policy has been removed
  • Post-sale customer follow-up process is now required
  • 10% of total hours needed under the education criteria must come from NTEA-based education and training options
  • Applications for distributors/upfitters and manufacturers that upfit (previously separate) have been combined for a more streamlined application process

Which application should I use to apply or renew?
US and Canadian companies that have vehicle certification responsibilities are to  use the application for Criteria A, but NTEA manufacturer members have the option to use either Criteria A or B applications.

If you are applying for MVP status for the first time, you will need to use the applicable application under the section new applicants on or after Jan. 1, 2021. Renewing MVP applicants may use applications under this same section, or you have the option to use the previous applications/criteria through Dec. 31, 2021.

Please note that if you are applying for or renewing MVP status in response to contracting requirements of the General Services Administration, you will need to use the U.S. application for Distributors/Manufacturers that upfit - Criteria A
