Planned changes of regulations for vehicle spare parts
Colombia notified to WTO several new drafts which will replace existing regulations for automotive spare parts
The drafts are supposed to change the existing conformity assessment procedure for vehicle spare parts. Currently, the regulated automotive product categories in Colombia are safety glass, brake system components, tyres, safety belts and reflective strips. Each category has separate regulations which set out technical standards, conformity assessment procedure, labelling requirements, etc.
The new draft regulations published recently affect only safety glass and seat belts, however, it cannot be excluded that other categories will follow soon.
One of the most important changes in the new regulations is the clarification of the acceptance of UNECE and FMVSS and their accompanying documents in Colombia.
Please do not hesitate to contact the EFS Product Compliance Team to find out more about other changes and requirements of the new regulations.
