Product Certification for the Taiwanese market: Taiwan VSCC Certification

What is the VSCC certification?

The VSCC certification stands for Vehicle Safety Certification Center and describes the organization responsible for the approval of automotive products in Taiwan. The agency was established in March 2009 by the Ministry of Transport and Communications.

For the import to Taiwan, it must be proven that the products meet the Taiwanese safety and quality standards. For this purpose, the test standards published by VSCC, the so-called Vehicle Safety Test Directions, are used. If there is a test standard, certification for the respective product is possible.

 

Here is a brief video about the VSCC certification, presented by Julian Busch, director of
MPR China Certification GmbH / China Certification Corporation:

You can also watch this video on our Video Channel.

 

What products need VSCC approval?

The VSCC is responsible for the Taiwan VSCC approval for automotive products such as interior trim components, seats, safety glass, tires, etc., as well as the overall vehicle.

In addition, many other electronic components that are installed in the vehicle also fall under their area of ​​responsibility. Different test requirements apply depending on the product.

It makes sense to get a precise product evaluation by VSCC in order to determine the requirements applicable for a product in order to bring them onto the market. Therefore, a good cooperation with VSCC is important.

 

VSCC certification process:

There are significant differences between the VSCC approval and the CCC certification process. The biggest difference is that no factory inspection is required during initial certification, which means the process can be completed more quickly than in case of CCC certification.

The first factory inspection from Vehicle Safety Certification Center Taiwan takes place after 3 years from the initial application, but the process of the factory inspection is comparable to the CCC certification. In addition to the factory inspection, the VSCC annually checks the status of the quality management certificates of the manufacturing plants, which is why an annual document review is necessary in order to maintain the validity of the certificates.

In the case of VSCC certification, the certificates are called Examination Reports.

There are two steps required to receive the Examination Report:

  1. Company Registration at VSCC
  2. Product testing according to the Vehicle Safety Testing Directions

A plant must register with VSCC before it can apply for the certificate. If a company is already registered, further plants can be registered with VSCC.

The tests are based on the Taiwanese test standards, the “Vehicle Safety Testing Directions”. The Vehicle Safety Testing Directions are also often abbreviated with VSTD. As an example, the test standard VSTD 19-1 applies to interior trimming components and is comparable to GB 8410, the test standard for CCAP / CQC certification. The VSTD largely corresponds to the ECE regulations, but ECE tests cannot replace VSCC test reports.

There are special requirements for marking that have to be observed carefully, e.g. diameter, height.

How can I best prepare myself for the VSCC Taiwan certification?

Application for the Taiwan Examination Report requires testing according to the Vehicle Safety Test Directions (VSTD). Therefore, the best way to prepare is to check the appropriate test standard and make sure that the product will pass the test. Furthermore, it is helpful to read the regulations and being IATF certified.

Which factories need to be audited?

The factory which applied for the VSCC Examination Report will be audited. Usually, it is the same factory which is producing the final product or doing the last quality assurance steps before delivering to the OEM.

The inspection is not required during the initial certification process. The first onsite inspection will be required within 1 to 3 years after the first Examination Report is issued by VSCC. Usually, it will be organized in the third year. Usually, a follow-up audit then happens every three years.

After certification, how do I have to mark my products?

The marking with the approval label (CC mark) is only required for the following products:

  1. Tachograph
  2. Coupling devices for trailer towed by small vehicles
  3. Luggage racks for small vehicles
  4. Payload meter
  5. Retro-reflective marking
  6. Safety belt

The answer is no. The applicant is responsible for being up to date. Companies are obligated to conduct their own research regarding changes if they do not hire an advisory firm to monitor changes that would affect product compliance.
