Competence Center for Technical Regulations & Materials

The vehicles of the future must comply with country-specific regulations and laws so that they are approved by the local authorities. There are very different regulations and approval processes worldwide for e.g. Crash behavior, exhaust gases  or braking systems.

In this context, the Competence Center for Technical Regulations & Materials represents the interests of the members in the homologation, certification and legislative process.

The Competence Center for Technical Regulations & Materials is responsible for two VDA committees. The VDA Technology, Safety and Environment Committee (ATSU) is responsible for the complex subject of vehicle requirements in national, European and international regulations. In addition, the VDA materials committee provides a holistic view of materials and associated test methods.
