Taiwan Motor Vehicle Type Approval
The authority of motor vehicle type approval in Taiwan Region is the Ministry of Communications of Taiwan. The Vehicle Safety Certification Center under the Ministry of Communications is a non-profit organization supervised by the Ministry of Communications. The purpose is to study vehicle safety regulations and management systems, and provide vehicle safety inspection and certification related services.

Till March 2021, MOTC has published 150 vehicle safety testing directions. From automotive lighting and light signaling devices, safety glazing, belts, to braking system, seats and headrests, VSTD include most the safety aspects in vehicle system and components.

MOTC has been implementing vehicle safety type approval system since 1998. From then, Vehicle Safety Testing Directions have been established and come into force for whole-vehicle type approval and system, component approvals. By study to UNECE, FMVSS, JIS and GB regulations, Taiwan finds out its own standards in vehicle inspection and management.

ATIC has conducted in-depth cooperation with the MOTC and the Vehicle Safety Certification Center VSCC to provide professional one-stop service for motor vehicle and parts companies.
