Worldwide approvals and access to international markets (market access service)

Worldwide approvals and access to international markets (market access service) for automotive businesses | TÜV Rheinland

Use our services to enter new markets

Promising new automotive markets are growing around the world. An affluent middle class is developing in the emerging markets of South America, Africa and the Asia-Pacific Area, creating a highly attractive market for European carmakers and suppliers.

But these emerging markets have very different requirements. Administrative structures are as varied as the regulations for type testing, approvals, prototype operation, sales and many other aspects. You need plenty of expertise to enter these markets successfully. Not every company or research department has the resources to obtain this expertise for itself.

You need a globally experienced partner for the automotive sector and this is where we come in. As a leading global provider of complete solutions for market access, vehicle testing and type approval we help you enter new markets with our internationally and nationally tailored consultation, test reports and processes for products and production.

Our experts – many of whom work in your target markets – are familiar with the local approval regulations and can seamlessly commission the required tests and examinations. We operate state-of-the-art test and approval centers around the world for the automotive industry.

We are a single source provider, offering assistance with everything from initial contact with the regulatory authorities, to testing and certification as well as to the transport of prototypes. As the industry leader we smooth your way to new sales markets and help you launch your automotive products. You can access markets more quickly, which in turn improves turnover and yields.

Benefit from the advantages of our market access services for the automotive industry.

Our global network and our knowledge database for all countries and regions accelerate and facilitate your entry into new markets. As our customer and partner, there is no need for you to deal with legal regulations and other standards, or to call on different partners for each area. Even if you want to market a specific product on different continents, you can keep working with the same contact partner. We offer true one-stop shopping with an interdisciplinary approach.

All this yields important benefits in the global competition: as a carmaker you can access new sales markets more easily with our help. As an importer, you can achieve a shorter time-to-market, and as a supplier you can have your products qualified and approved worldwide with the help of just one partner.
