Thatcham’s product accreditation scheme TQA is to become the single brand for all Thatcham certified products and equipment.
Thatcham’s scheme of product certification, commonly known as TQA, is to change its title to Thatcham Quality Assurance.
Two new Thatcham vehicle security categories will be created. The existing criteria known as Stolen Vehicle Tracking Systems will become Category 6 and the criteria known as Stolen Vehicle Location Systems will become Category 7.
Thatcham will now move forward with one single, fully transparent product certification system and process regardless of product type or use.
Dean Lander, quality and certifications systems manager, said its processes will let Thatcham "continue to ‘set the standards’ for safer and more secure vehicles for the driving public.”
