SHANGHAI, June 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
Fast access to Russian Vehicle Type Certification (OTTC)
Leading Testing, Inspection and Certification Services Provider Bureau Veritas announces that Bureau Veritas VEO, a Bureau Veritas Group company, has successfully facilitated the first OTTC Certificate issuance in China for an ERA-GLONASS enabled vehicle with its localized solution in China.
OTTC and ERA-GLONASS Certification
OTTC is the certificate to vehicles exported to Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) member states. ERA-GLONASS, an automatic emergency call system, provides rapid assistance via emergency cellular service and reduces casualties in the event of an accident. ERA-GLONASS has been compulsory since 1 January, 2017 and is now an integral part of OTTC which requires In Vehicle Systems (IVS) within the EEC member states to be equipped with ERA-GLONASS.
As an intelligent telematics-based system, deployment of ERA-GLONASS is also an impetus to the Connected Vehicle. The EEC has brought ERA-GLONASS certification into the legislation of OTTC to pave way for the continued realization of this project.
Bureau Veritas VEO offers Unique Localized Solution
By leveraging an exclusive cooperation with the Academ-CERT of Belarus and its partner laboratories in China, Bureau Veritas VEO now leads as the only accredited channel for localized testing solution in China. OEMs and manufacturers of systems integrating ERA-GLOANSS technology in China can take advantage of applying OTTC certification through Bureau Veritas VEO' localized testing and certification solution. This certification is well accepted across the EEC member states including Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan.
Henri He, Director of China Automotive Business Line of Bureau Veritas CPS commented, "We are delighted to be a pioneer homologation service provider in assisting the first OTTC certification in China for an ERA-GLONASS enabled vehicle. By utilizing our localized testing and certification solution, it is certainly a business breakthrough for Chinese OEMs and manufacturers of ERA-GLONASS technology who wish to access the EEC member states with a faster turnaround time."
Nickle Luo, General Manager of Bureau Veritas VEO & Global Homologation Director of China Automotive Business Line added, "It is notable that Chinese automotive OEMs and manufacturers of ERA-GLONASS technology are encountering challenges such as language barrier, long process as well as complexity of OTTC requirements. Our localized solution can support our clients in the Chinese automotive supply chain to streamline the whole OTTC process at ease, resulting in increased carefree efficiency, higher cost effectiveness and faster time to market."
