NSF Certifies More than 900 TYC Lamps

NSF certification includes TYC headlamps, tail, fog, corner, reverse and park lamps, and reflectors

ANN ARBOR, MI & TAINAN, Taiwan — NSF International, a global organization with 70 years of certification and testing experience, has certified more than 900 TYC Brother Industrial Company Ltd.’s (TYC) lamps via the NSF Automotive Collision Replacement Parts Certification Program. These 900 TYC lamps can be used in 3,800 vehicle applications. TYC is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of automotive, motorcycle, truck and bus lighting products.

The NSF certification of 900 TYC lamps represents a 30 percent increase in the number of certified parts available in the market covering more than 16,600 applications. The certification includes testing and certifying TYC headlamps, tail, fog, corner, reverse and park lamps, and reflectors in addition to performing facility audits to make sure that these lamps, like all NSF certified automotive parts, meet rigid quality, safety and performance standards.

NSF Certified lamps are tested against NSF’s stringent requirements, which include meeting Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 108 – Lamps, reflective devices and associated equipment. The standard specifies requirements for original and replacement lamps and reflective devices to reduce traffic accidents by providing adequate illumination of the roadway.

This newly NSF Certified group of TYC lamps is of great benefit to repairers, distributors and insurers. The vast majority of these certified lamps are new to market and will help body repairers make higher-quality repairs using NSF Certified lamps.
