National approvals according to local road traffic licensing regulations in Germany and Czech Republic
We assist in the handling of complete homologation projects or assisting during capacity bottlenecks. This would also include complete checks of documentation provided by manufacturers and preparation of substantiated technical report to provide to approval authorities.
Our local experts are well versed in the ECE regulations and speak the local language in whichever market you need to enter. In markets where TÜV SÜD is not accredited, we can interpret the local standards and perform a gap analysis to identify potential nonconformities of a product against those regulations. We facilitate the closing of gaps, the type approval process and all communication between your business and the local authority.
Hybrid electric vehicles, battery electric vehicles and fuel cell cars have a new and additional layer in the type approval process. TÜV SÜD’s e-Mobility experts can support you to have your alternative energy vehicle homologated to specific standards and regulations.
