The North American Parts Compliance Program (ECP) promoted by AMECA (The Automotive Manufacturers Equipment Compliance Agency, Inc.) is a centralized, voluntary, one-stop process. It is a procedure for informing the government, industry and the general public that motor vehicle safety components have been tested in AMECA authorized laboratories and that they meet relevant standards. Products with an AMECA certificate will be more easily procured by North American buyers and users. AMECA provides product testing related services by authorizing third-party laboratories. Only test reports issued by AEMCA authorized laboratories will be approved by AMECA.

ATIC Japan Vehicle Type Approval Service

Japanese automotive homologation system is ranked among the world's three major automotive homologation systems together with European and the United States. The core motor vehicle regulations are the Road Vehicle Law, the Motor Vehicle Type Designation Rules, the Security Standards for Road Transport Vehicles, and the Air Pollution Prevention Law.

Motor vehicle lighting and signaling devices need to meet requirements specified in the Security Standards for Road Transport Vehicles and the Equipment Type Designation Rules. The technical requirements for most systems and components are consistent with UNECE regulations. For automotive lighting and signaling devices in case UNECE regulation is mentioned as equivalent regulation in Equipment Type Designation Rules, there is no need to apply for the type designation to Japanese authority again when UNECE type approval certificates are available. During the whole vehicle type designation, UNECE certified parts shall bear the approval mark and submit information documents and type approval certificates to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism for review. For motor vehicle lighting and signal devices that UNECE regulation is not mentioned as equivalent regulation in Equipment Type Designation Rules, relevant tests shall be carried out according to the technical requirements in Security Standards for Road Transport Vehicles and the Type Designation Test Procedures, the evaluation process is consistent with the whole vehicle evaluation process.

ADR certification

Before a new vehicle can be registered for the first time in Australia, it must meet the requirements of the Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989 (the Act). The Act applies to all new vehicles - whether road motor vehicles or road trailers. Under the Act, new vehicles are required to be fitted with an identification plate (formerly known as a compliance plate). The identification plate provides a clear indication to the state or territory registering authority - and to the owner and the general public - that the vehicle is ready for use in transport on public roads in Australia.

In Australia, the entire process from application to obtaining an Identification Plate is called Certification. The entire certification process is managed by Australian Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications and operated through Vehicle Safety Standards Branch (VSS).
 
The scope of vehicle certification includes: Motor Vehicles, Trailers, Tractors, Bicycles, Used Imported Cars, Special Vehicles, etc. Component certification includes: Automotive Lamps, Rearview Mirrors, Seat Belts, Brake Hoses, Glass, Tires, Retro-reflectors, Filament Bulbs, Couplings, Seats, etc.
