LG and Magna strengthen cooperation for autonomous driving solutions

2. February 2023

LG Electronics and automotive supplier Magna announced in early January that they will strengthen their cooperation in the field of autonomous driving. The two companies are combining synergies of LG’s advanced in-car entertainment technology and Magna’s driver assistance systems. There are plans to develop a prototype for new systems and conduct a joint feasibility study. LG and Magna were also present at the CES electronics show in Las Vegas in January to make new business contacts with global car manufacturers. Parts and equipment used in the production of autonomous vehicles often require KCs certification to be approved for import and sale in Korea.

LG has been continuously developing its in-car entertainment systems in recent years and is the world’s number one with 23 per cent market share, according to market analyst Strategy Analytics. LG’s portfolio includes telematics, audio, video and navigation systems. The expanded collaboration between the two companies stems from the LG Magna e-Powertrain joint venture of 2021. After building plants in South Korea and China, LG Magna is now building a third automotive parts plant in Mexico at a cost of US$100 million.

KCs certification was introduced to ensure basic safety in the design and manufacture of hazardous machinery and protective equipment in hazardous workplaces in Korea. The aim is to protect the health and safety of workers by preventing accidents. We offer certification services for all product areas, including KC certification for consumer products and especially electronics, KC-EMV certification for electronic products and KCs certification for machinery, as well as KCs Ex for explosion-proof products. We are at your disposal for all questions regarding Korea certifications.

Feel free to contact us any time if you need assistance or have any questions regarding Korean certifications like KC, KC EMC, KCs, KCs for explosion safety products or KGS factory registration.
