Safety according to regulations – together towards homologation for your vehicle

The transformation of mobility is in full swing: new drive concepts, connectivity, digitalization, assistance systems and autonomous driving are already with us today and the offering will become even larger and more diverse in the future. Products are becoming technically more powerful and complex, while at the same time legislation obliges manufacturers to comply with strict official standards and limits in order to make products safe and comfortable for consumers. All these factors for type approval differ from market to market and place high demands on technical conformity.

With our experienced experts, we advise and support our customers in all areas of homologation throughout the entire product development process. From planning and development support to relevant type tests and type approval - we support you throughout the entire process with all important data and information relating to the approval of your vehicles.

Planning and development of your systems with regard to homologation

Incorporating laws, standards and regulations into the development process at an early stage saves effort and costs. We always keep an eye on all relevant requirements and information for our customers and compile all the necessary requirements for your products at an early stage - whether for the domestic market or for international markets.

Thanks to continuous monitoring of regulations and data in the target markets, we are able to identify possible changes at an early stage and incorporate them into development immediately.

With our range of services, we accompany the entire development process of your vehicle right through to homologation. Together with our development experts, we derive technical measures and solutions to ensure that your products can be approved in all target markets with as little effort as possible.
