The United States Department of Transportation, abbreviated DOT, is headquartered in Washington. As the functional department of the US government, the US Department of Transportation develops and improves transportation and transportation-related regulations to meet environmental and national defense needs. The Department of Transportation is also a basic department of the federal government, responsible for formulation and management to protect and improve the safety, appropriateness and effectiveness of transportation system. According to the regulations of the US Department of Transportation, where vehicles and critical components are exported to the US market, they must pass DOT certification and mark the corresponding DOT mark on the product. The product has passed the DOT certification and is marked with the corresponding mark, indicating that the product meets the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) and has passed the corresponding test or manufacturer's statement. Traction battery as component is not covered by FMVSS, but for US market whole vehicle manufactures may request traction battery fulfills SAE, SAND, UL, etc. standards.

ATIC Korea Vehicle Type Approval

Compulsory acts and regulations stipulate that any motor vehicle entering the South Korean market must be certified by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport (MOLIT), Ministry of Environmental Protection (MoE) and Ministry of Industry (MoI) through certification scheme of safety, environmental protection and fuel consumption. For electric vehicles, the Appraisal Tests, which is regulated by MoE is required. The MoE of the Republic of Korea subsidizes the models that have passed the test. The amount of subsidies varies according to the policies.

A person who intends to manufacture, assemble or import a motor vehicle (including the incomplete motor vehicle and the motor vehicle manufactured by phase) shall self-authenticate that the model of the relevant motor vehicle meets the safety standards (Korea Motor Vehicle Safety Standard - KMVSS) for motor vehicles (in cases of an incomplete motor vehicle or a motor vehicle manufactured by phase, referring to the safety standards for motor vehicles to be applied as at the time when a manufacture, etc. concerned is finished), as determined by Ordinance of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport.

According to KMVSS traction battery shall be tested in accordance with KMVSS Article 18-3 and the test procedure KMVSS TP 48. At the same time, for certain category vehicles their Lithium-ion traction batteries must obtain KS R1204 test report during MoE certification and Subsidy application.

Standard:
KMVSS 18.3, KMVSS TP 48

Test Items:
Drop test, Immersion test, Fire resistance, Over-temperature protection, Short circuit test, Overcharge test, Over-discharge test
