Vehicle and vehicle component manufacturers are obliged to prove their products match the specification, performance and marking requirements set out in the original type approval documentation. This is called Conformity of Production (COP) certification and it is a key part of the homologation process.
SGS Conformity of Production (COP) Tests
We can carry out COP certifications for all manufacturers of vehicles and vehicle components. We can carry out these tests at our own or third-party laboratories, or at your own facilities if preferred.
As well as testing on the production line, it is necessary to re-test throughout the lifetime of each vehicle type. These re-tests can be performed by the manufacturer or by outsourcing to companies such as SGS.
Why work with SGS?
We offer COP testing services to vehicle and vehicle component manufacturers worldwide. We have the experience and expertise to help you meet all the required standards, whether you produce whole vehicles or their component parts.
