ERA-GLONASS certification – organized by 7layers
Component and vehicle certification for ERA-GLONASS via 7layers, the Vehicle-2-X experts
Ratingen, 17 July 2017: ERA-GLONASS emergency calling systems, which have to be installed into vehicles such as cars, busses or trucks within in the EURASIAN Customs Union, are expected to reduce the impact of road casualties considerably.
As reliability and interoperability are key for such a life-critical system, ERA-GLONASS certification requirements demand a number of tests which have to be passed successfully for either the in-vehicle component certification or certification of the complete vehicle. A confirmation of conformity is then issued by an ERA-GLONASS certification body, accredited by e.g. BSCA, the national accreditation body of BELARUS.
7layers, a well-known partner of the German automotive industry, has years of experience in bringing wireless-connected automotive devices to the global market. The company has now extended its offerings with ERA-GLONASS certification services. The test services encompass all relevant ERA-GLONASS standards for both component and vehicle certification.
