Media Partners’ Corner – EV READY®: Bringing safety and performance into the spotlight

First and foremost, EV READY certification is not compulsory. Unlike regulations such as the Eichrecht (the German calibration law), this certification is voluntary. For electric vehicle drivers, it’s a guarantee that they receive a product of quality. For charging station operators, this certification is proof that they are providing their customers with a product with a European seal of quality. But what does the EV READY certification actually include?

What does EV READY mean?

EV READY is a guarantee of quality for electric vehicle charging infrastructure. Both the product and the installation’s quality are assessed via a third-party certification process. This process is elaborate and includes an extensive set of requirements. Essentially, three key aspects are considered:

  • Security
  • Interoperability
  • Performance

What are the benefits of EV READY certification for consumers? 

EV READY also ensures that charging stations and electric or plug-in hybrid vehicles are fully compatible. What is more, the certificate means that consumers receive the highest standards of safety and performance during the charging process, by testing the charging infrastructure’s reliability, efficiency and robustness.
