European Homologation Service : ..... a very important issue for the registration of imported vehicles. The term “Omologation” is getting increasingly important in the car industry. If you want to register your imported vehicle, you need to comply with technical configurations that are set forth in country-specific regulations.

While some countries have no requirements for registration at all, other countries are very strict about their rules and regulations ( e.g. EU, Japan etc. ).
