ECE R90 is a European quality standard that requires all replacement brake pads and brake linings to perform within certain parameters to Original Equipment specification.
To comply with ECE R90 standards, the brake pads and linings must pass stringent speed sensitivity and cold performance equivalence tests. Pads that have passed ECE R90 testing will have an “E” mark on the backing plate alongside a number denoting which authority has tested and approved the pad (e.g. UK – ‘E11’).
Any manufacturer wishing to sell (or export) brake products within the EU must have those products tested and certified to ECE R90 standards by law.
