Certification of technical personnel who work on hybrid and electric vehicles - IMQ-TECVIE scheme

Certification is aimed at technical personnel who work on hybrid and electric vehicles, with a view to ensuring that all work on these vehicles is carried out in safe conditions and in accordance with the procedures laid down by the manufacturers.
It relates to the following professional categories in particular:

  • employers and employees at garages, bodyshops and commercial vehicle converters;
  • employers and employees at companies and workshops for light electric vehicles;
  • employers and employees in the scooter and motorcycle sector
  •  employers and employees in the police service, fire service, security service and rescue, roadside assistance and towing services;
  • employers and employees at recycling centres;
  • employers and employees at fleet operators, car sharing and car rental companies that deal with hybrid and/or electric cars;
  •  occupational safety implementation bodies, occupational safety technicians and specialists;
  •  training centres and vocational institutes.

Obtaining certification brings the following benefits:

  •  for converters: endorsing the products and services they supply, providing valid sales arguments and certifying that their work meets approved standards and reflects the state of the art;
  • for employers: demonstrating that they have appointed personnel with suitable skills to carry out electrical work on hybrid and electric cars;
  • for the market: a means of distinguishing skills endorsed by an internationally recognised Notified Body, with almost 70 years’ experience in the electrical and automotive industry.
