Required paper documents can be submitted to ECE either by the applicant OR directly by the issuing body. Do not send multiple copies of the same document.

We may be able to accept alternatives to our standard documentation requirements. Secure electronic documents should be sent to ECEMail@ece.org directly from a verifiable email address of the institution. Please ask the institution to include your name and ECE reference number when providing us with secure electronic documents. However, this is not a guarantee, as we must review all documents sent on a case-by-case basis. If you have any questions please Contact Us (please do not email questions to ecemail@ece.org; this is for document submission only).
