CETECOM designated as first technical Service for new eCall Regulation

CETECOM eCall10 July 2018 - 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. CETECOM is actually the first laboratory in Europe to offer and carry out eCall approvals for the EU.

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).

This UNECE (United Nations Economic Commission for Europe) regulation, which will enter into force on July 19, 2018, is not only valid for the EU member states, but for up to 56 countries worldwide. These include, among others, Russia, Japan or Korea.

In addition, the regulation defines four distinct approval types for:

  •   Components
  •   eCall systems
  •   Motor vehicles with eCall system, which has already been approved
  •   Motor vehicles with eCall system, which has not yet been approved

Depending on the approval type, the scope of the test differs. In total, there are the following test areas:

  •   Data sending and voice connection
  •   EMC (UN – R 10)
  •   Position determination (GNSS)
  •   PLMN access
  •   Information and warning signal (Self-test)
  •   Power supply
  •   Resistance to impact (Sled test)
  •   AECS control
  •   Hands-free audio performance (Audio)
  •   Vehicle impact test
