Standard Crash Tests

Global Approval Tests

For vehicles to be approved within the EU and in most other countries of the world, they must submit to various crash scenarios and fulfill certain safety criteria. Here, measurement data as well as image and video material are recorded and studied.

At our accredited DEKRA Crash Test Center in Neumünster, we offer type testing services according to all globally valid crash standards. In the overview in the following table, you can see which standard tests are performed at our DEKRA Crash Test Center in Neumünster
