E-Mark and e-Mark are the European conformity marks issued by the transport sector, indicating that the products comply with relevant laws and regulations or directives. Vehicles and related products need E-Mark or e-Mark certification to be legally sold in Europe.

Vehicle Tracking Systems and e-Mark/E-Mark

The European Commission has published the Directive “2004/104/EC” on 13th November 2004 followed by “2005/49/EC”, “2005/83/EC”, “2006/28/EC” and the new adoption directive “2009/19/EC” on 12th March 2009

concerning the EMC of motor vehicles and their electrical and electronic components, which forms part of European legislation for automotive type approval.

The Directive “2004/104/EC”, adopted by “2005/49/EC”, “2005/83/EC”, “2006/28/EC” and “2009/19/EC” replaces the previous automotive EMC directive “95/54/EC”, which was based on “72/245/EEC”, a directive handling only the on the suppression of electrical noise from spark-ignition engines.

Equipment covered by the 2009/19/EC directive:

All Electrical equipment (including telecommunications equipment) intended to be fitted to a motor vehicle is considered to be an “Electronic Sub Assembly (ESA)” or “Aftermarket equipment” and must meet the EMC-requirements of the automotive directive. For that reason, e-Mark/E-Mark certification which is approved after stringent EMC and other tests is an indicator of conformity of a GPS based vehicle tracking device communicating over GSM (GPRS/Edge/3G) network. Novatel Wireless (Enfora) Spider MT series products are e-Mark certificated mobile tracking devices, which our company distribute, connects your vehicles and valuable assets to you with peace of mind.
