Verband der Automobilindustrie

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The German Association of the Automotive Industry[1] or VDA (German: Verband der Automobilindustrie e. V.) is a German interest group of the German automobile industry, both automobile manufactures and automobile component suppliers. It is member of the European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA).

The VDA represents carmakers including BMW, Volkswagen, and Mercedes-Benz parent Daimler but also counts foreign suppliers and foreign-owned carmakers like Opel among its members.[2] The group is located in Berlin, Germany.


The VDA hosts the Europe's largest motor show, the biannual International Motor Show Germany (IAA) in Frankfurt.

The VDA published a series of standards and recommendations. Among those is the German quality management system (QMS) for the automobile industry. The fourth edition was issued in December 1998, and became mandatory for all German car makers on April 1, 1999.

The VDA is a founding member of both the ENX Association (since 2000) and Odette International (since 2001).
