Homologation is the approval by a government authority confirming compliance with regulatory requirements. Component approval feeds system and, in turn, vehicle approval. Non-compliance at component level can invalidate and/or delay system/vehicle approvals.
Component Homologation is the responsibility of the manufacturer of the component (i.e. the supplier). The files at the following link are designed to assist Ford suppliers in identifying which components require specific component homologation in a given market and what steps may be required to complete the homologation process in those markets.
Please note: It is ultimately the responsibility of the supplier to obtain and fulfill the full set of requirements from the relevant authorities in the given market.
