Certification mark PPP 80034
Conformity of eCall retrofit TPS units
Subject of audit:
The subject of the test is an eCall retrofit TPS unit. An eCall retrofit TPS unit is a system that offers a TPS (= Third Party Service) for M1 / N1 vehicles that do not have an integrated eCall system.
Examination based on:
The test mark is awarded as part of a voluntary certification based on test criteria derived from the applicable eCall TPS standards for assessing conformity with the applicable requirements from:
The continuous adaptation to current standards and the procedures for quality control of the software and hardware development process are evaluated annually during the validity period of the certificate.
Test mark affirms:
1. Compliant with relevant eCall TPS regulations
1.1 DR (EU) 2017 / 79- Annex VI, Annex VII
The application tests validate the conformity of the GNSS positioning according to DR 2017/79 Annex VI and the self-test functionality according to Annex VII.
1.2 DR (EU) 2017/78
The documentation review verifies that the unit and its documentation meet the applicable requirements from DR (EU) 2017/78.
1.3 R (EU) 2015/758
The documentation review verifies that the unit documentation meets the applicable requirements from R (EU) 2015/758.
1.4 EN 16102: 2012
The documentation review verifies that the unit documentation meets the applicable requirements from EN16102: 2012.
1.5 EN 16454: 2015
The conformity with the applicable test cases from EN16454: 2015 chapter 9.8 is validated by application tests and review of the documentation. These application tests verify that the system performs all applicable test cases in EN 16454 without errors.
2. Automatic call initialization
2.1 DR (EU) 2017/79-Annex V
The application tests verify that the device is a ready-to-use device that can be used by end users as an eCall Retrofit TPS-IVS. The automatic triggering processes are validated according to DR (EU) 2017/79 Annex V.
2.2 EN 16454: 2015
The conformity to the relevant test cases from EN16454: 2015 chapter 9.8 is verified on the basis of application tests and documentation checks.
In addition, a documentation review checks whether the development and further development of the eCall Retrofit TPS-IVS is subject to controlled procedures and methods to ensure that the quality of the unit is not adversely affected by firmware or software updates.
3. Crash resistance
The application test verifies that the unit in the intended installation concept is not restricted in its function by very high acceleration values so that an emergency call with location information can no longer be triggered. The impact resistance is verified in accordance with DR (EU) 2017/79 Annex I.
4. Functionality checked
The functionality of the eCall Retrofit-TPS-IVS is checked by means of a validation, whether all functions of the system work as described and deliver the expected result. This is repeated during the validity period of the certificate by an annual recertification with selected test samples. In addition, an audit checks whether the development and further development of the certified system are subject to controlled procedures and methods that ensure that the quality of the unit is not adversely affected by firmware or software updates.
