In Europe, there are safety certification requirements for motor vehicles and safety-related components and systems, which are embodied in the E mark and e mark certification.
The E mark is derived from the Regulation issued by the Economic Commisssion of Europe (ECE). Currently, ECE includes 28 countries in Europe. In addition to EU member states, it also includes Eastern European, Southern European and other non-European countries.
ECE regulations are recommended for members and are not mandatory standards. Member States can apply ECE regulations or extend their national regulations. At present, from the perspective of market demand, ECE members are generally willing to receive test reports and certificates that comply with ECE regulations. The products covered by the E mark certificate are parts and system components, and there is no corresponding regulation for vehicle certification. Products with E mark certification are accepted by the market.
Common domestic E-mark certified products include car bulbs, safety glass, tires, warning triangles, and automotive electronics. The testing agency for E-mark certification is generally the technical service agency of ECE member countries. The issuing agency of E-mark certificate is the government department of ECE member countries. The certificates of each country have corresponding numbers. E1—German E2—France E3—Italy E4 -Netherlands E5-Sweden E6-Belgium E7-Hungary E8-Czech E9-Spain E10-Yugoslavia E11-United Kingdom E12-Austria E13-Luxembourg E14-Switzerland E16-Norway E17-Finland E18-Denmark E19-Romania E20-Poland E21-Portugal E22-Russia E23-Greece E25-Croatia E26-Slovenia E27-Slovakia E28-Belarus E29-Estonia E31-Bosnia and Herzegovina E37-Turkey
The e mark is a certification mark for the entire vehicle, safety parts and systems used by member states of the European Commission in accordance with EU directives. The testing agency must be a technical service agency within the EU member states, and the certification authority is the transport department of the EU member state government. Products that have obtained the e-mark certification will be recognized by all EU member states. Like the E-mark certification, the certificates of each member country have corresponding numbers ﹕ e1-Germany e2-France e3-Italy e4-Netherlands e5-Sweden e6-Belgium e9-Spain e11-United Kingdom e12-Austria e13-Luxembourg e17-Finland e18-Denmark e21-Portugal e23-Greece E24-Ireland
Whether it is E mark or e mark certification, the product must pass the test first, and the quality assurance system of the production enterprise must also meet the requirements of the ISO9000 standard.
