National Safety Mark (NSM) Certification

The national safety mark (NSM) is the property of the Government of Canada and its use is authorized by the Minister of Transport to manufacturers of new vehicles offered for sale in Canada. Transport Canada requires the manufacturers that are authorized to affix the mark, to have the capability to certify their vehicle production to comply with the regulations under the Motor Vehicle Safety Act.

WESTEST can perform seat/seat belt/seat anchorage testing (CMVSS 207, 208, 209, 210), rear impact guard testing (CMVSS 223), center of gravity verification (for CMVSS 105) and many other tests.  Our team of professional engineers are able to interpret the regulations and offer opinions of compliance as required to help collect the necessary documentation and evidence that Transport Canada needs to see as part of the application. 

Contact us today to discuss your requirements with regards to testing and engineering required to support your NSM application or NSM-related activities.
