Global Market Access for Components, Systems and Vehicles

YOUR Challenge

Suppliers and manufacturers of products intended for the automotive industry need to be confident that their products meet customer expectations along with the required safety, regulatory and government standards. The need to achieve these objectives is crucial. Non-compliance can run the risk of enforcement under various national, state, or municipal laws. Poor quality products can result in customer dissatisfaction, hazard, and injury. Both can negatively impact brand image. With seemingly, an ever-increasing number of technologies within the modern vehicle, complying with the regulatory and industry interest group requirements is a challenge that continues to evolve for the global automotive marketplace.

How BV can help

Bureau Veritas has supported the mobility industry for many years with testing, certification and type approval handling services for wireless components and applications. More recently we have also been involved in connected-car projects, due to the expanding deployment of wireless connectivity in the mobility sector. As such, Bureau Veritas is not only supporting the development and market access processes of automotive devices, modules and applications, but also the integration, validation and maintenance of V2X services within the mobility ecosystem.

Global Footprint

Our clients benefit from access to in excess of 50 labs supporting the Smartworld, including Connected Cars, and we continue to develop our footprint to meet the changing dynamics of the numerous market segments.



We work together with numerous connected vehicle organizations in order to support the development of specifications and to gain valuable insights into upcoming requirements. By combining these with our engineering capabilities, we are able to offer test services at an early stage, before their release as official standards. We participate in organizations with a special interest in connected vehicles (ETSI, ISO TCO24, IEEE, SAE, Wi-Fi Alliance, Bluetooth® SIG etc.) and also those that are explicitly engaged in promoting Car2X systems.
