TUV SÜD Awarded ECO POWER ECE R100 Certificate for Domestic Testing of Automotive Power Batteries

In Shanghai on January 10, 2019, TUV SUD, the world's leading third-party testing and certification body, awarded ECO POWER the ECE R100 certificate for domestic testing of new energy automotive power battery single products. The certificate marks that the safety performance of our battery products has been at the leading level in the domestic industry and can meet the technical regulations of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe for new energy power batteries for automobiles. It also shows that TUV SUD, a third-party testing and certification organization, has professional technical capability, rich experience and knowledge as well as localized and authoritative service team in the field of new energy vehicles.

In recent years, with the popularity of electric vehicles, not only the scope and number of their applications are expanding, but also the energy of a single battery in electric vehicles is getting higher and higher. The continuous outbreak of lithium battery safety accidents also makes people more and more concerned about the safety of lithium batteries. For electric vehicle battery safety, the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe promulgated Article 100 of the regulation "Uniform requirements for the certification of battery-driven electric vehicles with regard to structural and functional safety" on the import of European automotive power batteries to raise the technical access threshold. The ECO POWER, which was awarded the ECE R100 certificate, has been tested in China and passed the ECE R100 certification. It will be installed in the Hungarian garbage truck produced by SAIC and driven into the international market together with the whole vehicle.

The cooperation between TUV SUD and ECO POWER includes the first factory audit, product type certification, etc. TUV SUD's meticulous and standardized service goes through the whole process of factory audit, product testing and certificate application, and provides ECO POWER with a detailed test plan and perfect technical support and test solutions.
