Taiwan Certification: Article about Taiwan Certification for Automobiles and Automotive Parts Published in “In-Compliance Magazine”10. February 2017
On January 31, 2017 In-Compliance Magazine published an article about the Taiwan Certification of automotive parts on its website. The article was written by Mr. Julian Busch, CEO of the China Certification Corporation and can be viewed here.
According to the article, since joining the World Trade Organization (WTO) in January of 2002 Taiwan has implemented several new regulations regarding its international trade. Most of the national Taiwanese standards established in this context are based on existing international standards from the International Standards Organization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).
Mr. Busch describes how the systems for certifications and the responsible authorities have been set for the certification of vehicle components. The vehicle components affected by the Taiwan Certification are primarily those which are also covered by the European ECE standards. These include, but are not limited to interior trim components of vehicles, seats and headrests, fuel tanks and seatbelt systems.
In detail, the article describes the necessary steps to obtain the Taiwan Certification. The certification process is complex. Certifications in the automotive sector are carried out by the Vehicle Safety Certification Center (VSCC). Its task is to test and ensure the safety of the vehicles on the Taiwan market. A number of documents, and forms need to be completed and submitted in the process. Once accepted, specific tests are carried out on samples provided by the manufacturer in accordance with the Taiwanese test standards (“Vehicle Safety Testing Directions”). The tests are done by either the VSCC or other accredited test laboratories in Taiwan.
Factory inspections have also been mandatory for automotive suppliers to ensure product conformity. Once a manufacturer has successfully obtained the Taiwan Certification, many competitive advantages are achieved, and certified products can be sold directly on the Taiwan market. New automotive products can also be certified much more easily after a manufacturer is registered with the VSCC.
