ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Standard Motor Products Inc. (SMP) has gained registration for its tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) sensors from the independent standards firm NSF International, the first to do so under new NSF guidelines.
Under NSF International's new TPMS registration program, TPMS sensors are tested to federal motor vehicle regulations while working with a vehicle's on-board systems to warn drivers when a tire is underinflated.
NSF International writes standards, and tests and certifies products for the automotive, food, water, health sciences and consumer goods industries.
“NSF International registration assures consumers, shops and insurance companies that Standard Motor Products' aftermarket TPMS sensors meet all applicable federal requirements and will fit and function properly,” said Bob Frayer, global managing director, NSF International automotive certification.
“When repair shops and insurers see a TPMS sensor with the NSF International registered mark, they can be assured that the system meets federal requirements for functionality and performance testing and for radio frequency devices.”
