Homologations / Approvals
FAKT S.r.l. is a Technical Service offering a wide range of approval tests in the automotive field. FAKT S.r.l. strictly co-operates with the head office in Germany FAKT GmbH, as well as with other qualified external laboratories. Technical reports required for EC/UNECE approvals are released, for "whole vehicles", "systems", "separate technical units" or "components".
In the german national field, we are able to perform surveys for the ABE/ABG release of approvals from the KBA or Teilegutachten (technical reports) used for tuning parts.
The organisation and preparation of test vehicles and the installation of the test samples complete the range of our services. This permits us to manage the approval process in a very simple and fast way.
European Whole Vehicle Type Approval
FAKT, in collaboration with the technical service FAKT GmbH in Germany, offers also the tests on the whole vehicle in order to obtain the European Whole Vehicle Type Approval according to Regulation (EU) 2018/858 (motor vehicles and their trailers), Regulation (EU) 168/2013 (two or three-wheel motor vehicles) and Regulation (EU) 167/2013 (agricultural or forestry tractors, their trailers and interchangeable towed machinery). This for manufacturers of stage 1 (complete and/or uncomplete vehicles) so as for stage 2 (completed vehicles).
The tests may be performed on the manufacturer’s premises, in our company, or in an adequate location, based on the object under test. For tests on new premises a qualification process will be carried out.
The manufacturer can request the issue of Type Approval Certificate “e1”, issued by KBA (German type approval authority) or “e24”, issued by NSAI (Irish type approval authority).
In our photometric laboratory and tunnel, we are able to realize photometric tests and evaluations, according to the UNECE regulations, FMVSS108/CMVSS108/SAE standards and Taiwan directives. Any kind of illuminating and signalling device, as well as rear-view mirrors, for different vehicles may be object of the above tests.
FAKT is designated to release technical reports both for e1/E1 approvlas (regarding the german type approval authority KBA) and e24/E24 approvals (regarding irish type approval authority NSAI).
In order to complete the executable range of test, FAKT has introduced also the service for testing the electromagnetic compatibility. An EMC laboratory has been realized in direct connection with the environmental laboratory. This allows a one step testing according to a wide range of testing standards.
In the automotive field, we are able to perform the tests required by the CISPR 25 or ISO 11452 standards, but also according to the major part of test standards in the automotive field.
FAKT is able to perform environmental tests for several components, like electronic boards, electrical engines and vehicles elements.
All the tests are executed in modern climatic chambers, produced by international recognised manufacturers, according to EN, DIN, IEC, SAE standards or specific specifications.
Chambers for climatic, thermal shock, corrosion and vibration tests are available in the italian sites of FAKT, also providing IP and environmental conditioning.
As per the previous tests, FAKT may assist you to obtain approvals both e1/E1 with KBA and e24/E24 with NSAI.
Thanks to the multi-year presence in the automotive sector, the laboratory for brakes tests allows fast approval processes both of parts/components (brake pads, brake shoes, brake discs and brake drums) as well as of complete systems, according to the UNECE R13, UNECE-R13-H and UNECE-R90 regulations, as well as according to the german law (ABE national approvals).
Based upon the category of test and the expected approval process, the tests may be executed by our skilled staff both by road and on dynamometer test bench.
Acoustic tests laboratory
In our acoustic laboratory, the tests on acoustic warning devices and motor vehicles emitted signals may be performed.
The object of the analysis includes several devices, among which police horns (according to the laws in force), exhaust systems for car/motorcycles (according to the European legislation) and silencers for trucks.
In all cases, the service offered by FAKT provides for a complete assistance to the customer, which has to supply the tests samples and some related technical information. For on road tests a certified test track is available in our headquarter in Germany FAKT GmbH.
