ERA-GLONASS Certification
Take the straight road to ERA-GLONASS certification with 7layers


ERA-GLONASS is a public response system
It shall bring assistance to drivers and passengers in case of accidents and dangerous situations on the road. By automatically or manually reporting casualties via the ERA-GLONASS system to the emergency services, professional help will be on-hand more quickly, thus reducing the impact of road casualties. It is expected that the arrival time of emergency services at the scene will be reduced by 30% on average through utilizing modern navigation, telecommunication and information technologies.
Where and when will it be in use?
Since January 2017 ALL vehicles that are put into circulation throughout the territory of the Eurasian Customs Union (including Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus) have to be equipped with the ERA-GLONASS emergency calling system. In contrast to the situation in the EU and its upcoming eCall System, this already includes ALL vehicles, from trucks and vans to busses or sports cars. The ERA-GLONASS System is harmonized with the eCall System to ensure a common road safety space throughout Eurasian and EU member states.
