How to Get ARAI Approval?

Start by determining the engine family or model family of an engine of the vehicle according to the instructions provided in the ISO 8178- 7. 

Though, a final decision of deciding the parent engine and family classification is vested with an authorized agency.

A supplier is required to apply for the Type Approval to a certification agency recommended in Rule 6 of the GSR 771 (E), and amendments vide GSR 232 (E).

Further, the above-mentioned certification is responsible for the verification of the manufacturer’s COP (Conformity of Production).   

Now, finally, you can fill the application form for Type Approval as per Annexure-II and V by filling in all the required details such as parent model, test results (if any), etc.

Later, depending on the information provided by you, the certification agency will determine the family, parent model, and its variants.  

In the later stages, there would be testing of the parent model (certification authority holds the authority to test more than a model). 

After this, if the type approval application has been submitted for a model, the certification agency will determine whether it belongs to the family of an already certified model or not.

Further, the sample of the engine of the vehicle needs to be submitted for testing as proclaimed by the certification agency to check the emission level. 

At last, if the supplier’s engine passes the testing, you can obtain the Type Approval certificate. 

On the contrary, if the engine sample fails the testing, the supplier would be required to repair, modify and replace the engine. After this, the revised application needs to be submitted. 

Note: If the manufacturer fails to repair, modify, and replace the sample in 3 months, then the application of the supplier will be considered withdrawn. Thus, the supplier will have to submit the fresh application again.
