Procedure for Certification that Requirements for Mobile Air Conditioning System Components, Service Equipment, and Service Technician Training Meet SAE J Standards
|Publication Date:||1 January 2013|
This SAE Standard provides manufacturers, testing facilities and providers of technician training with a procedure for certifying compliance with the appropriate standards. Manufacturers or seller who advertise their products as Certified to an SAE J standard shall follow this procedure. Certification of a product is voluntary; however, this certification process is mandatory for those advertising meeting SAE Standard(s) requirements. Only certifying to this standard allows those claiming compliance to advertise that their product (unit), component, or service meets all requirements of the specific SAE standard. Certification of compliance to this and the appropriate standard and use of the SAE label on the product shall only be permitted after all the required information has been submitted to SAE International and it has been posted on the SAE web site. This process is mandatory for those advertising as being "Certified to SAE JXXXX [appropriate SAE Standard] requirements or any advertising or labeling language that implies such certification. SAE International will post the results in the official SAE on-line database. SAE J2911 requires manufacturers, testing facilities, and technician training providers to comply with different requirements. (Therefore this document covers requirements for MAC system parts, service equipment and printed training manuals that are different in content so are identified in this standard for general reference as product with procedures for certifying compliance with the appropriate SAE standard. Regulatory agencies will also have access to the SAE International public posting of the results in the official SAE database.
The purpose of this Standard SAE J2911 is to verify and certify that the requirements of the specified J Standard for MAC system components, MAC service equipment and MAC service technician training are met. Certification provides a means to assure a customer or a Regulatory Agency that the equipment, the components, or the training service delivers the performance required by the SAE standards to which it is certified. This procedure also identifies the data required for each SAE J Standard that is to be submitted to SAE International to be recorded and available in the public domain.
Field of Application
This certification process is applicable to all component testing, service equipment testing, and technician training testing. This standard is not required if PPAP certification is already on file at the supplier.
