CETECOM is the first laboratory to offer testing and certification services for the new eCall regulation UN - R 144.
eCall is mandatory in the EU for all new models of passenger cars (M1) and light commercial vehicles (N1) since April 1, 2018. As early as August 2017, the German Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA) designated CETECOM as a technical service for eCall and we were the first laboratory in Europe to offer and carry out eCall approvals for the EU.
Our eCall expertise has now been reconfirmed, as the KBA once again designated us as a technical service for eCall. The re-designation allows the test execution and type approval according to the new eCall regulation UN – R 144 (approval of Accident Emergency Call Systems).
