Fast Market Access for Suppliers of Full Vehicles and Automotive Parts

The automotive industry is facing growing pressure from increasing regulations, partly due to the
complexities of global trade – which is influenced by a myriad of developments such as
international trade agreement revisions, protectionism, political unrest and lots more.

In addition, car production centers and customer sales are shifting to emerging nations, further
complicating the field of regulatory and licensing requirements faced by car manufacturers and
retailers.

OUR APPROACH TO AUTOMOTIVE CERTIFICATION

Bureau Veritas tackles these challenges by offering tailored solutions to safeguard original
equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers, as they access the global market.

This includes:

  • Market research – Monitoring and reporting on matters affecting target markets, including economic trends, industry megatrends, policies, import and export data, competitor behaviours, consumer habits, trade barriers and more.
  • Regulation advisory – Maintaining a database of all the latest regulations and standards
    impacting the automotive market and advise on any changes. Our analysis helps identify the
    similarities and differences among the targeted countries, compared with domestic
    requirements.
  • Technical support – Collection, checking and review of technical data; creation of technical
    documentation; a rationalised test plan to cover EMC, environmental, mechanical, chemical,
    tire, crash, NVH, wireless and more; and follow-up technical support including sample vehicle
    checking, witness testing and factory audits.
  • Regulation training – Regulation training throughout each project or process, to ensure
    compliance at every stage.
  • Engineering improvement plan – Testing services to locate product issues and relevant
    solutions; proposals for benchmarking, technology and product improvement; and technical
    solutions for product compliance.
  • Global homologation – Our automotive approvals management and global homologation
    services enable automotive companies to comply with the regulations of target markets.

“With the rapid expansion of the ACES (Automated, Connected, Electrification
and Shared Use) model within the mobility market, the need to stay on top of
various international regulatory requirements is critical to support fast
market access.”
