VSTD certification for vehicles and vehicle components

Ensure compliance with Taiwan’s market access regulations

Ensure compliance with Taiwan’s market access regulations

What is VSCC Taiwan?

Vehicle manufacturers who wish to export to the Taiwanese market must demonstrate that their vehicle complies with regulation from the Taiwanese Vehicle Safety Certification Center (VSCC). The process is relatively complex and requires that all tests be conducted by an accredited technical service provider at their own laboratory, or at a witness laboratory which is approved by the Taiwanese Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC).

Why is VSCC Taiwan automotive certification important?

Complying with Taiwan vehicle regulations provides OEM’s and suppliers multiple benefits, including:

  • Assurance that your product is compliant with all relevant Taiwan vehicle regulations
  • Immediate competitive advantage as your vehicles or vehicle components can be directly sold on the Taiwanese market
  • Faster access to market in future - once a manufacturer is registered with VSCC Taiwan, any subsequent certification for other automotive products is less complex and costly
