A closer look at the U.S. Vehicle homologation approach VS. Common Global Practice

As in all other global markets, US applicable regulations and standards must be met or exceeded by vehicles, subsystems or components to enter the national automotive market. However, the U.S. automotive market has a different approach to most other markets when it comes to vehicle homologation. Manufacturers of vehicles, subsystems and individual components must not only deal with a diverse global regulatory framework but also with different certification schemes.

This white paper highlights these differences and gives an overview of the governing and standardization bodies which influence access to the U.S. automotive market. We also discuss how U.S. manufacturers exporting to tightly regulated regions, or global manufacturers seeking to navigate the U.S. self-certification market, can access those markets more cost effectively.
