Chinese first OTTC for ERA-GLONASS equipped vehicle is certified via Bureau Veritas VEO solution
Bureau Veritas has announced that Bureau Veritas VEO, a Bureau Veritas Group company, has successfully facilitated the first OTTC Certificate issuance in China for an ERA-GLONASS enabled vehicle with its localized solution in China.
OTTC is the certificate to vehicles exported to Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) member states. ERA-GLONASS, an automatic emergency call system, provides rapid assistance via emergency cellular service and reduces casualties in the event of an accident. ERA-GLONASS has been compulsory since 1 January, 2017 and is now an integral part of OTTC which requires In Vehicle Systems (IVS) within the EEC member states to be equipped with ERA-GLONASS.
As an intelligent telematics-based system, deployment of ERA-GLONASS is also an impetus to the Connected Vehicle. The EEC has brought ERA-GLONASS certification into the legislation of OTTC to pave way for the continued realization of this project.
By leveraging an exclusive cooperation with the Academ-CERT of Belarus and its partner laboratories in China, Bureau Veritas VEO now leads as the only accredited channel for localized testing solution in China. OEMs and manufacturers of systems integrating ERA-GLOANSS technology in China can take advantage of applying OTTC certification through Bureau Veritas VEO’ localized testing and certification solution. This certification is well accepted across the EEC member states including Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan.
