AIS/TAC Certification

What is AIS/TAC Certification?

The AIS Certification (Automotive Industry Standard), more precisely called Type Approval Certification (TAC)or Conformity of Production (COP) Certification, describes the certification scheme for automobiles and automotive components for the Indian market. It was established in 1989 in course with the enactment of the Central Motor Vehicles Rules (CMVR) which covers the regulations. Rule No. 126 of this law defines the process of the Type Approval. This process of the AIS certification has similar steps as the CCC Certification for the Chinese market. Testing and certification can be conducted by different authorities, such as the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI), Automotive Component Manufacturers Association of India (ACMA) and International Centre for Automotive Technology (ICAT).


Here is a brief video about the TAC certification (AIS/COP Certification, ARAI accreditation), presented by Julian Busch, director of
MPR China Certification GmbH / China Certification Corporation:

The TAC certification process includes the following steps:

  1. Preparation of Application documents
  2. Document Review
  3. Pre-test Inspection
  4. Tests for Type Approval
  5. Factory Inspection
  6. Issuance of the Certificate
  7. Marking and Labeling

After the successful completion of product testing and the factory audit, the component can be marked with the label accordingly. The information on the label must include a trade mark or manufacturers name, a unique ID code, the type approval number and the marking as mandated by the relevant standard. The location of the label on the part is on discretion by the manufacturer. The type approval reference number has six digits consisting of a test agency code, the calendar year and the AIS Certificate number.

For the factory inspection an auditor will be sent for up to two days to each factory and check the company’s quality system. In order to maintain the validity of the AIS certificate, a follow-up factory inspection takes place every two years. Furthermore, tests have to be conducted periodically on randomly selected samples according to the frequency named in the Conformity of Production (COP) lists.

The AIS Certification process can be challenging and complex to navigate. The efficient communication with the Indian authorized bodies and thorough preparation of all documents and test samples are essential for the successful application and implementation of the TAC Certification.
