What is ECE R90 Certification for Brake Pads?

What is ECE R90?
ECE-R90 guarantees the same performance as the OE brake component. In North America, there is no government regulation that reiterates brake parts to be certified to meet OE speciation prior to being sold. However, Europe has strict quality standards.  ECE R90 is for European vehicles. This ensures testing the brakes to meet the standards. The regulation measures brake pads and linings for cold performance, speed, sensitivity, friction behavior, compressibility, shear, and hardness. ECE-R90 is required for all replacement brake disc and linings sold throughout the European Union.

How do I know it is ECE R90 certified?

The brake pads have an R90 code on the brakes. The ECE R90 certified brake pads match the OE brake quality, safety, and performance.

What are the advantages?
