EU approves some vehicle type approval self-testing

  • 01-Jun-2010 11:17 EDT

The European Union on May 1 published an amendment to type approval requirements to permit some of the mandated tests to be carried out by the manufacturer themselves, according to InterRegs, an online resource for global vehicle safety and emissions regulations. The amendments also allow for compliance with some of the requirements to be demonstrated by virtual means—e.g., calculation, analysis, assessment of CAD data—rather than by physical testing. The new regulation, (EU) No. 371/2010, contains a list of the subjects where self-testing and/or virtual testing are permitted and introduces all the necessary provisions to allow the use of these alternative procedures.
