Vipac has been working in the automotive certification area since 1975. Over this time the company has built on its experience and facilities, enabling it to now offer a wide range of certification services. These range from total turnkey vehicle certification, including design of modifications if required, through to individual Australian Design Rule (ADR) testing and submissions.
Vipac’s staff are experienced in all facets of vehicle homologation and certification programs to ECE, EEC, FMVSS, JIS and ADR standards. Test facilities are available for side impact testing (destructive and non destructive), body block testing, brake testing, windscreen wiper and washer testing, windscreen demisting as well as seat and seat anchorage testing. After the completion of any tests, Vipac’s staff will submit the required documentation to the relevant authorities to facilitate a quick turn-around of the homologation process.
