Highly individualized buses and non-automated production lead to challenges, especially with new technologies such as hydrogen-, or electric-powered buses, which require the highest level of accuracy.

TÜV NORD Mobilität has developed a web-based, data-driven solution that is used by its highly qualified bus experts to check and report vehicle quality during the production process or before delivery as a final check.

The bus industry is booming and becoming increasingly international - both buyers and manufacturers must be able to rely on their respective contractual partners:

  • On the customer side, there is a need to stay informed about bus quality - i.e. compliance with the specification, possible quality defects or functional failures - during production and before final acceptance.
  • On the manufacturer's side, it is important to ensure and make visible that his/its own work complies with the required specification and is free of defects.

Accordingly, both sides benefit from a neutral authority that is present at the various production steps upon need.

Our TÜV NORD bus inspection team can do that:

  • Auditing of the pre-runner vehicle (first bus from the series)
  • Quality assurance during the entire manufacturing process
  • Pre-delivery inspection (PDI) – final inspection

Your advantages when entrusting TÜV NORD Mobilität with bus inspection:

  • You receive transparent information about vehicle condition at every production step
  • The vehicle corresponds to the specifications ordered and the quality you expect
  • You save recall costs and avoid damage to your reputation
  • You reduce your expenses by saving audit work
  • Your new bus lines can start on time
  • You invest in the trustworthiness of your fleet and safety of your passengers
  • In case of a warranty claim, you are reliable documentation available

  • Maximum possible safety, especially when using vehicles with new drive technologies such as electric buses and hydrogen-powered buses
