EMC Testing of Automotive Devices

As a VCA Technical Service and UKAS accredited testing laboratory No. 2360, we perform UNECE Regulation 10 ‘E’ mark testing for electrical sub-assemblies (ESA's) and components, as well as devices intended for aftermarket fitment.

We can offer testing for the automotive sector at greatly reduced lead times and can act on our customer’s behalf to obtain the approval certificate from the VCA, who are the designated Type Approval authority in charge with operating the system of automotive type approvals in the UK.

All components and ESA which are related to the functions of:

• direct control of the vehicle (e.g. engine, gear, brake, suspension,
   steering, speed limiting, driver position, driver visibility)
• driver, passenger and other road-user protection (e.g. airbag, seat belts)
• vehicle data bus (i.e. by blocking data transmission to other safety critical functions)
• vehicle statutory data (e.g. tachograph, odometer) and functions which when disturbed cause confusion to the driver.

Are required to be Type Approved and carry the 'E' mark. 'E' marking can also be applied voluntarily to other components and ESA's.

VCA Certification

We can provide all the necessary information and documentation for certification, testing and reporting.

RN Electronics can act on customers’ behalf enabling the VCA to issue relevant approval certificates to the customer through RN Electronics rather than being directly involved, making the entire process of obtaining an 'E' mark on automotive components more efficient and cost effective.

The certification process for E marking starts after the customer provides relevant documentation and test samples for assessment and testing:

RN Electronics carries out testing on your product in line with UN-ECE Regulation 10.

RN Electronics arranges the submission of all test reports/technical documentation to the Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA).

VCA issues an approval certificate, subject to a satisfactory review of the submitted documents and Conformity of Production (CoP) assessment clearance has been given.

Customer can affix E mark on the product after receiving approval number from VCA, via RN Electronics.
