Vehicle Safety Testing Directions (VSTD)

For each product that is certified by VSCC, there is an applicable VSTD (VSTD stands for Vehicle Safety Testing Directions). The VSTD describes the product test that the product must undergo in the course of VSCC certification.

A passenger car as a complete vehicle is subject to certification. The vehicle manufacturer can approve certain scopes of individual components over the entire vehicle, but this means a high level of effort for the OEM in the event of changes to the supplier’s components. Therefore, the OEM often requires the individual components to be certified separately via VSCC. 

Some electrical components installed in the interior could also fall under BSMI certification. In many cases, however, only one of the two certifications is required.

We will gladly check for you which certification makes the most sense for you in such a case. Please contact us if you are interested.
