The future is electric, particularly for the automobile industry. But beyond the popularity of electric vehicles (EVs) among consumers, EVs are also starting to play a critical role in meeting global climate change goals through integration with renewable energy and smart grid systems. However, the safety and performance of EVs depends not only on the vehicle itself, but the charging components necessary for operation.

The complexity of EV systems and the varying regulations and practices across different countries, regions, and industries can be overwhelming. The ultimate goal of the component or vehicle manufacturer is to get their products to target markets around the world that meets safety standards, performance, and compliance requirements.
