SHENYANG, China, Aug. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — On August 24, the international independent third-party testing, inspection and certification organization TUV Rheinland Greater China and BMW Brilliance Automotive Co., Ltd. held a certificate awarding ceremony in Shenyang officially recognizing the Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Test Field with the E-mark certification Witness Laboratory qualification. Patrick Mueller, Vice President of BMW Brilliance R&D Center, Nicolas Kloss, Head of Electrical and Electronic Department of BMW Brilliance R&D Center, Huang Yuxin, Vice President of TUV Rheinland Greater China Mobility, and Ms. Anne Lee, General Manager of TUV Rheinland Greater China Mobility, attended the certificate awarding ceremony.
Huang Yuxin stated that, “TUV Rheinland and BMW Brilliance have been working together for many years. We are committed to technological innovation and safety and quality improvement, and to providing consumers with excellent products, services, and experiences. In the future, TUV Rheinland will leverage its technology competence and project experience in the automotive industry, as well as its global service network, to provide comprehensive technical support for BMW Brilliance’s technology research and development, quality control, and market expansion at home and abroad.”
Patrick Mueller expressed his gratitude to both parties for their efforts in cooperation, which have not only expanded the capabilities of the R&D center but also obtained the TUV Rheinland Witness Laboratory Qualification. This is an important milestone in the development of the R&D center. He is also looking forward to further cooperation with TUV Rheinland to improve BMW Brilliance R&D efficiency and quality.
The E-mark certification of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) is currently the most widely accepted certification system for complete vehicles and parts worldwide. Obtaining an E-mark certificate allows automobile manufacturers to gain access to the markets of many countries around the world. TUV Rheinland audited the test center based on relevant quality management documentation and awarded Witness Laboratory qualification to BMW Brilliance. This indicates that the test center’s testing capabilities, equipment, environmental conditions, and laboratory management meet UNECE R10.06 requirements. In the future, TUV Rheinland technical experts can carry out on-site witness tests on BMW Brilliance’s vehicle products following the provisions of the Regulation UNECE R10.06 to efficiently control the product testing and certification process, accelerate certification speed, and reduce costs.
