EV READY Certification

IMQ is recognised by ASEFA as a testing laboratory for testing charging stations for electric vehicles, and plugs and sockets for charging electric vehicles, for the purposes of issuing the EV Ready mark.

As well as promoting the interoperability of charging systems, the “EV READY®” mark, promoted by Renault, Nissan, PSA and Mitsubishi through the involvement of the various stakeholders, is aimed at providing users with the highest standards of safety and performance in the charging process, by taking care of the reliability, efficiency and robustness of charging infrastructure.

“EV READY®” promotes and certifies complete interoperability between charging stations and electric or plug-in hybrid vehicles, by checking that products comply with a series of requirements above and beyond those of the main existing standards, so as to ensure the quality of the electric vehicle charging options at the disposal of end-users. With the European market rapidly expanding, it is vital that end-users have the guidance they need to choose the right charging solutions in line with the applicable standards.

Management system certification is the endorsement enjoyed by organisations that have chosen to equip themselves with efficient management systems and suitable skills and structures, aimed at continuous improvement. And the higher the prestige of the awarding body, the higher the value of the guarantee. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, our laboratories have full capability to put products through all the checks required by the major European directives and international standards.
