Homologation and Certification Setup
The AISTS provides tailored support and services to sports federations for the development, management and implementation of new or existing homologation processes: developing testing methodology and testing devices for approval processes (including legal aspects), according to international standards and norms (ISO, ENs) when applicable, or through the introduction of new rules and regulations.
We work closely with various federations, FEI, FINA, FIVB, ICF, ISU, UCI, WA to name a few, to ensure equipment safety and to allow for an equal playing field in each sporting discipline. The goal is to assist in avoiding technical advantages for competition attire, individual and infrastructure equipment, protective gear, etc.
Examples are competition attire (eg swimwear), sporting equipment (eg archery targets), infrastructure equipment (eg protection mattress for ice skating) or timing/ranking system (eg for equestrian competitions).
AISTS’s current and past projects are driving change within international sports organisation, by benchmarking and proposing practical solutions in collaboration with industry and academia.
