MIRA And Bureau Veritas Collaborate To Support Asia Automotive Supply Chain

HONG KONG, February 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

~ Leading EMC consultancy and test house combine to deliver total solution ~

MIRA and Bureau Veritas are pleased to announce that they have formed a collaboration to offer turnkey EMC services to the Asia automotive supply chain.

MIRA, a global leader in transport engineering will offer technical support, consultancy and engineering solutions while Bureau Veritas will perform testing for Asian suppliers from its Shanghai test laboratory which has been assessed and accredited by MIRA.

This relationship strengthens MIRA's presence in China and complements Bureau Veritas' existing portfolio of independent test laboratory services. Both parties already deliver a range of EMC services testing to the following requirements:

  • UNECE Regulation 10
  • EEC Automotive Directive 72/245/EEC
  • EMC Directive 2004/108/EC

Bureau Veritas and MIRA both enjoy leadership positions in the automotive industry. Bureau Veritas' automotive business delivers services as diverse as ecodesign / life cycle analysis; failure analysis; audits and inspections; ISO/TS 16949 certification; vehicle inspection and damage tracking support; vehicle claim inspections support as well as EMC, analytical and reliability testing.

MIRA, meanwhile, provides a wide range of consultancy services including vehicle and test engineering; unmanned and autonomous vehicle technology; low carbon and intelligent mobility; functional safety and certification and homologation services from its offices in the UK, South America and Asia. MIRA's UK headquarters is home to one of the world's most advanced proving grounds and over 35 major test facilities which includes Europe's largest EMC capability.

Catherine Chen, Bureau Veritas' Global Product Line Leader for automotive supply chain services stated, "Bureau Veritas has been delivering EMC, reliability and analytical testing services to the automotive supply chain for many years now from our centers of excellence in USA, France and China. However, with the ongoing globalisation of the automotive supply chain and expansion in fast growing markets such as China and India, we continue to develop our automotive services expansion strategy. Following the recent acquisitions of ECL, an EMC test house in Germany, and Davis, a reliability test house in Shanghai earlier this year, the collaboration with MIRA, one of the world's leading vehicle engineering consultancy companies with global OEM recognition, demonstrates our commitment in delivering added value test services to the automotive supply chain."

Declan Allen, MIRA's Operations Director continued, "With a trusted, worldwide presence, the partnership with Bureau Veritas will help us further progress our goal of expanding our services to the global automotive market. Through this collaboration we now have the platform to proactively support the automotive supply chain of Asia in understanding and complying with the comprehensive range of EMC requirements needed for the global marketplace. As one of the leading EMC testing organisations in Asia, Bureau Veritas has a strong and established footprint and operation in Asia. With MIRA's technical and industry expertise, the total test and consultancy solution provides the supply chain in Asia with a trusted solution delivered from independent experts who understand the needs of global vehicle manufacturers."
