View profile


Accreditation, in addition to being a condition for operating as a traffic support agency, is a means for Automotive Diagnostic Centers to demonstrate their competence through compliance with the requirements of impartiality, facilities, personnel, equipment, methods and procedures described in the Colombian Technical Standards adopted by the Ministry of Transportation.

The inspection performed by an accredited CDA is an element that strengthens the management of road safety and air quality policies. A reliable, competent and impartial review allows to determine that motor vehicles transiting through the national territory are in optimal mechanical and safety conditions. This contributes to the reduction of road accidents and the reduction of pollutant emissions generated by mobile sources.


Applies to Automotive Diagnostic Centers that have implemented the ISO/IEC 17020 standard, as Inspection Body type A. Its purpose is to provide the service of Technical Mechanical Inspection and Pollutant Emissions for different types of vehicles such as motorcycles, mopeds, motorcycles, motorcycles, tricycles, quadricycles, motorcycles, ATVs, light, heavy rigid, articulated and bi-articulated vehicles circulating in the national territory.

Each Automotive Diagnostic Center voluntarily requests the types of vehicles to be inspected according to its resources, capabilities and commercial interests. According to such request, it shall apply the requirements defined in the Colombian Technical Standards NTC 5375, NTC 6218 and NTC 6282 for the Technical Mechanical Inspection and Pollutant Emissions.
