Homologation certification process approves every part of the vehicles including components like lamps, mirrors, tires and more. The process is applicable on all types of vehicles including EV and fuel-run internal combustion engines (ICE) vehicles. The certification process also has stringent checks for even the braking mechanism and other electronic fittings.
