Regulator targets OTA technology

China is to enhance supervision of Over-The-Air technology in the automobile industry to ensure user safety, the State Administration for Market Regulation said yesterday.

The technology enables manufacturers to fix, maintain and improve vehicles through remote software updates downloaded to vehicles from a cloud-based server and, with the development of intelligent and connected technologies in the automobile industry, has been widely applied.

According to the administration, manufacturers adopting OTA technology will be filed with its quality development bureau. This includes companies established in China that produce automotive products and issue product certificates in their names, and companies that import automotive products from overseas to sell them in the domestic market.

Automobile companies who use OTA technology to eliminate defects and implement recalls shall formulate a recall plan, file it with the administration and fulfil its recall responsibilities in accordance with the law.

If OTA methods fail to eliminate defects or cause new defects, the company should again take recall measures.
