According to TÜV, this accreditation means the firm can offer complete testing of automotive lift equipment to ALI standards for the North American, European Union and global markets.
ALI created its lift certification program in 1993. Building codes in all 50 states and Washington, D.C., require that installed vehicle lifts meet the Automotive Lift Construction, Testing and Validation (ALCTV) safety standards issued by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and ALI.
