Soon, type approval of new vehicles will require a certified Software Update Management System (SUMS). In the future, any type approval-relevant update will only be allowed after registration and approval by the authorities. SUMS helps to identify which updates are relevant for approval. OEMs and suppliers need to implement organizational processes and procedures to comply with the regulation for delivery of software updates.

In this webinar we presented which processes must be applied and which requirements must be fulfilled to receive vehicle type approval and to permit software updates of vehicles in the field.
