SGS Fimko designated a Class C Technical Service
SGS Fimko broadened its Automotive Type Approval services portfolio when in June 2016 the Finnish Transport Safety Agency (Trafi) designated SGS Fimko Ltd. a Technical Service of category C.
The field of competence of SGS Fimko is EMC requirements for automotive type approval: UNECE Regulation 10 and the type-approval directive 2007/46/EC.
SGS Fimko has been delivering testing and expert services necessary to demonstrate conformity with the applicable requirements as a Designated Technical Service of category A. In addition to that, SGS Fimko Ltd is now entitled to assess and monitor Conformity of Production (CoP) which is required to apply and maintain type approval of a component or sub-assembly used in a vehicle.
SGS Fimko supervises an international team of factory inspectors around the world to conduct the required factory inspections at manufacturing sites in South-East Asia, China, the USA and Northern Europe.
SGS Fimko can also submit the type approval application to the authorities. Once approval is granted, manufacturers can affix the E-mark or the e-mark on their products.
