The expert organization DEKRA has entered a strategic cooperation in China with the Chinese Association of Automobile Manufactures (CAAM). A corresponding agreement with the CAAM has now been signed and presented on the sidelines of the most important industry conference in Guangzhou.

With the help of DEKRA, Chinese automobile manufacturers want to prepare for the future topics of electromobility, automation, and connectivity. This will involve both the reliability of the systems installed in the vehicle, and the undisturbed interaction with the connected environment.
The Deputy Secretary General of CAAM Jian Hua Shi emphasized the significance of the cooperation: “DEKRA is the world’s largest testing organization providing automotive services. In the strategic partnership, CAAM will work together with DEKRA to promote the Chinese automotive industry in the aspects of standardization and certification, among others.”

With the expansion of our network of test facilities and laboratories, we are well prepared for the further development of mobility and its connectivity. We have been building the infrastructure toward using our strengths to support the Chinese automotive industry in this time of rapid change. As the world’s largest provider of testing and inspection services to the automotive sector, it is imperative for us to play a key role in ensuring the safety of mobility in the future.”
