How to get your certification

Each project starts with a pre-assessment phase where the sharing mobility provider is first able to assess the service by themselves. If the sharing provider is able to meet 90% of the requirements stated in the standard, a DEKRA safety certificate is then provided to the sharing provider. If the requirements could not be met by the service providers, safety experts from different units of DEKRA will guide the sharing providers through consultation and workshops to meet the rigorous standards.
