CEC is an Industry-based organisation which develops Test Methods for the performance testing of Automotive Engine Oil, Fuels & Transmission Fluids (using gasoline & diesel engines). In addition, it covers Marine & Large Engine Oils, Two-stroke Engine Oils & Associated Bench Tests.
It maintains existing tests on an ongoing basis, concentrating on quality assurance (it forms part of EELQMS -European Engine Lubricants Quality Management System) and maintaining confidentiality amongst Stakeholders. It also manages the provision of Reference Fluids (lubricants and fuels) for its tests. CEC is based in Brussels and maintains a Secretariat also in Brussels.
CEC Online Test Monitoring System
An online system has been adopted for monitoring all non-ERC database CEC tests. The new system, which makes it easy to capture and analyse real-time reference test data is key to maintaining test quality.
Reference test results are recorded on a continuous basis rather than the traditional annual ‘round robin’ approach. Members can display, analyse and compare reference test results in graphic format across all key test parameters, making this a powerful tool for monitoring test quality and spotting data trends.
