VDA Certifications

The VDA QMC plays a major role in promoting standardisation in quality management in the automotive industry in Germany and worldwide. Together with experts from companies in the automotive industry, the VDA QMC develops sector-specific standards, some of which form the basis for corresponding certification.

The certifiable sector-specific quality management system standards developed by experts from the German automotive industry include not only the VDA 6.1, VDA 6.2 and VDA 6.4 regulations, but also standards for auditing and certifying manufacturers and distributors of AdBlue®, as well as a standard for awarding a seal to car wash facilities.


The VDA QMC has developed a set of rules for auditing and certifying the manufacturers and distributors of AdBlue® and coordinates all auditing activities relating to AdBlue® worldwide on this basis.
