Automotive homologation

Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and Tier 1 manufacturers have many considerations when planning to launch vehicles and automotive components to the global market. Your products must meet multiple standards and regulations around safety, emissions and other local requirements, which vary greatly from country to country, and are constantly shifting to keep pace with the rapidly changing automotive industry. Managing to the requirements is time consuming but critical because noncompliance can result in costly delays and rework.

Homologation testing for vehicles and automotive components

We deliver comprehensive automotive homologation services to help your vehicle and automotive components meet the mandatory standards and regulations necessary to achieve swift market entry. 

From U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS), China Compulsory Certification (CCC) to United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) and everything in between, UL can address your homologation needs, allowing you to focus on innovation and production.
