Ensure compliance of your vehicles with Taiwan's market access regulations
Taiwan’s automotive market is growing exponentially. The global push for electric vehicles is expected to fuel this and, as this sector attracts R&D subsidies, Taiwan is becoming increasingly attractive for those wanting to export vehicles or vehicle components into this emergent region. While Taiwan represents a market Expansion opportunity, the homologation process can be highly complex and difficult to navigate. All tests must be conducted by an accredited technical service provider at their own laboratory, or at a witness laboratoy which is approved by the Taiwanese Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC).
Why is VSTD type approval important for your business?
Having a product certified by a Taiwan-accredited technical service not only provides compliance assurance, it also delivers an immediate competitive advantage as your vehicles or vehicle components can be directly sold on the Taiwanese market. Once a manufacturer is registered with Taiwan’s Vehicle Safety Certification Center (VSCC), any subsequent certification for other automotive products is less complex and costly than the initial registration process.
How can we help you?
TÜV SÜD can help you to identify if your product falls under mandatory requirements, as not every automotive component is subject to certification. Our highly comprehensive customer support for all Taiwan items, as well as our close contacts to accountable authorities like VSCC, ITRI, MOTC, BOE and EPA, help you to minimise time-to-market, accessing the Taiwanese market quickly and cost effectively. We will fully support you in receiving your inital Taiwan accreditation, or subsequently updating your existing reports.
