This standard in the present issue is based on template LV 124, which was drawn up by representatives of automobile manufacturers Audi AG, BMW AG, Daimler AG, Porsche AG, and Volkswagen AG. Deviations from the LV 124 are listed on the cover sheet of this standard. If modifications to individual test sections become necessary in individual cases, these must be agreed upon separately between the appropriate department and the relevant manufacturer. Test reports are accepted as long as the tests were performed by an independent testing institute that is accredited according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025. Acceptance of the test reports does not automatically result in a release.
