ECO Certificazioni, both at its own Padua laboratory and a network of partner laboratories, offers all the tests necessary to get Homologation Approval in the automotive sector. In particular, ECO can meet the needs of those who construct Cat. L vehicles, offering various emission tests at its very own emissions bench and shed room (diurnal and hot soak) in its laboratory.
ECO has the exclusive recognition of European Technical Service Cat. B from the Republic of Cyprus – Road Transport Department (e49) | RTD-049-TS001-2017 for the European homologation of vehicles.
Outside the European Community, the laboratory meets the requirements of the FMVSS-122 and CFR 40.86 (USA) regulations and has the following accreditations:
Today the automotive industry is characterized by rapid technological progress and constant changes.
ECO is the ideal partner to support the development of companies in this sector, thanks to the constant development of its technicians, the technology used, as well as participation in exclusive tables and sector groups, e.g. CUNA and RCT-V.
ECO carries out many types of automotive tests in the laboratory, on the track and on the road to guarantee maximum reliability and compliance with safety requirements.
