Approval Label of the Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt
Legislation requires compliance with the essential requirements for electromagnetic compatibility according to the 2014/30/EU or ECE-R-10 directives.
All electrical products intended for installation on motor vehicles require approval in accordance with the ECE Directive (Economic Commission for Europe) and the associated ECE test mark. The test examines whether the product's emitted interference as well as its immunity to interference are within the limit values. The marking is made with a large "E" and a number in a circle and indicates that a component on the vehicle is approved according to EU regulations.
Designated Body for ECE-R-10 Type Approval
Depending on the market conditions and the functionality of these products, different approval procedures may be required. In addition to an accredited laboratory in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018, IBL-Lab GmbH was designated by the KBA (Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt) as a Class A Technical Service for the ECE-R-10 type approval procedure on 1 February and is therefore authorized to carry out EMC tests according to the ECE directive.

Frequently Asked Questions
All you need to know about the homologation process
- What is Automotive Testing?
Automotive testing puts full vehicles, components and systems through a series of laboratory, virtual and 'real world' assessments to ensure it is safe, reliable and compliant with safety regulations.
- What does homologation mean?
Homologation is the granting of approval by an official authority. This may be a court of law, a government department, or an academic or professional body, any of which would normally work from a set of rules or standards to determine whether such approval should be given.
- Why is Vehicle Testing important?
Vehicle Homologation is important for compliance. Products must meet the safety requirements to receive access to the global automotive market. Homologation ensures the reliability and safety of the components, systems and full vehicles.
- How is a car homologated for another country?
In order to homologate a vehicle, a sample must be supplied for evaluation, supported by a large body of documented evidence provided by the original manufacturer, including inspection and test reports compiled by recognized laboratories or inspection authorities.
