FIA SAFETY AND OTHER RACING PRODUCT HOMOLOGATIONS
The FIA develops standards and specifications for a variety of safety and other racing-related products. Manufacturers of products intended to meet those standards and specifications can submit them for approval through a process known as “homologation”. If homologated by the FIA, those products are then included in one of the Technical Lists published by the FIA.
As the ASN for the United States, ACCUS serves as the avenue through which American manufacturers submit their products to the FIA for homologation. This includes initial submittals, renewals, and/or updates.
FIA VEHICLE HOMOLOGATION
ACCUS also serves as the avenue through which American or American-based manufacturers of racing vehicles that are intended to meet published FIA vehicle specifications submit their products to the FIA for homologation.
This may include purpose-built vehicles such as formula cars and off-road vehicles, modified production vehicles, and other vehicles specified in FIA regulations.
FIA HISTORICAL TECHNICAL PASSPORT (HTP) SUBMITTED THROUGH ACCUS
ACCUS also serves as the avenue through which American or American-based owners of historic racing vehicles, or such vehicles otherwise located in this country, can apply for an FIA Historical Technical Passport (HTP).
An HTP is a document, which describes in words and pictures, the physical specifications and dimensions of a given car for the purpose of international historic motor sport under the auspices of Appendix K of the FIA International Sporting Code. Many FIA international historic motor sport events listed on the FIA calendar outside of the United States require cars to have an HTP issued by the home country ASN.
Some owners also acquire an HTP for vehicle validation and/or resale considerations.
