The program is designed to assist SEMA members companies to produce aftermarket products in demand overseas. One of the hurdles the International Vehicle Measuring Program (IVMP)seeks to address is to assist members to access hard-to-obtain vehicles in order to create export ready-product. We do this by identifying vehicles popularly customized globally but not sold in North America. IMVP, created with the assistance of the US government, involves the purchase and importation of international vehicles under a temporary US government waiver the vehicles are available to measured, free of charge, at the SEMA Garage or at your own facility.
SEMA Garage: to reserve an international vehicle, obtain tech transfer data or sign up for a measuring session (global and domestic vehicles) Through a special partnership with the U.S. Department of Commerce, SEMA has imported globally popular, accessorization friendly vehicles not available in the US to help SEMA-member manufacturers create export-ready products.
