Eurofins Product Testing - Automotive Competence

Let Eurofins clear the way for you as global partner for compliance, testing and certification.

The Automotive challenge

Modern cars contain noise-cancelling entertainment systems, wireless voice and digital communications, active suspension, antilock brakes, satellite navigation and multi-way sound systems. Due to the variety of technologies in use and the range of environments an automotive device could meet during its lifecycle, a wide range of potential interference problems is given. Standardization organisations have been developing EMC standards since the early 1990s to tackle this issue.

In Europe, the new revised automotive Directive forms part of the European legislation for automotive type approval and led to the e-marking for automotive equipment. Eurofins is accredited by the German "Federal Motor Transport Authority" and can perform tests according to the standards for emission and immunity for electronic components. Eurofins also performs tests for ROHS and a variety of consumer tests.
