AutoSock tests and approvals
AutoSock 'the product' was developed with close cooperation from car manufacturers and the German TÜV Süd from the beginning. Since 2001, AutoSock has been certified by TÜV Süd as a "winter emergency driving aid", creating a new product category in addition to metal snow chains.
In 2008, AutoSock passed the requirements of the new ÖNorm V5121 and is approved as a snow chain equivalent. AutoSock can be used whenever snow chains must be fitted in Czech Republic, Slovenia and New Zealand.
Since 2010 AutoSock is certified to comply with the French winter equipment regulations and can be used in France where the snowchain sign (B26) is in place. Please note that AutoSock are the only snow socks that comply with this regulation.
Today, AutoSock is approved by many car manufacturers such as Volkswagen, Toyota, Lexus, Honda, Mitsubishi, Mazda, BMW Group, Peugeot, Citroen, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Subaru and Vauxhall.
