Certification is Key to Active Compliance

AV and ADAS solutions are responsible for radically transforming our lives, making transportation safer and more efficient. The deployment of safe automated driving systems engages companies by holding them to a high standard of public trust. Companies need to implement active compliance with solution testing and certification as they prepare to enter the market. 

Taking this broad view of the importance of regulatory affairs and compliance for commercialization, especially in demonstrating the market readiness of our community, OPINA provides both pre-certification and certification services for software developed on the platform. 

We also provide compliance and regulatory training programs, where key team members and stakeholders can earn certificates.

OPINA Software Certification

Evaluation is conducted through an assessment of the design of the software components, the development of the application and a review of all of the testing results.

OPINA complies with international industry standards:

  • Automotive safety ISO 26262
  • Automotive cybersecurity 


At OPINA, we help ventures build active and early compliance programs with pre-certification.

These services include:

  • Identifying homologation criteria for selected homologation processes 
  • Establishing sound testing and pre-certification programs 
    • Working with designated safety personnel that will guide OPINA users through pre-certification service  
    • Establishing procedures and approaches related to different dimensions of safety and sharing testing and operation data 
  • Establishing sustainable testing and pre-certification facilities:
    • Safety management plans
    • Engagement with stakeholders 
    • Compliance with latest standards and best practices
  • Implementing robust safety precautions to mitigate and control risks 
  • Developing a functional safety and threat assessment plan 
    • ISO 26262, SOTIF and cybersecurity standards will be used to address requirements and processes to mitigate or eliminate risks during testing of AVs 
    • Constructing risk management procedures:
      • Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) defined by ISO26262 will be determined for all identified safety scenarios in the SMP
      • Analysis of Likelihood; Analysis of Potential Impact; and Analysis of Controllability studies will be incorporated
    • Establishing an audit program to evaluate performance and produce an approval or a failure document noting what corrective actions are needed for safety deficiencies.
