First Korean auto parts maker wins approval for software

Hyundai Mobis said yesterday it has acquired a certificate known as ISO 26262 from TUV SUD, a German inspection and certification organization, for its smart cruise control software and other technology related to its lane-keeping-assist system.

The nation’s largest auto parts maker said it became the first Korean company to receive the certificate, a functional safety standard set by the International Organization for Standards in November last year. It addresses the safety life cycle of automotive electric and electronic systems in passenger vehicles.

Hyundai Mobis said it aims to win the certificate for all of its mechatronics product by 2014. The affiliate of Hyundai Motor Group added that it is currently working to get it for four other safety systems, including its airbag control unit, next year.

The company previously earned three similar certificates: ISO/TS 16949, a technical specification for developing a quality management system; ISO 14001, an environmental standard; and ISO 27001, a standard for information security management system.
