Perhaps this should be a Wiktionary entry, and the specific contexts should have their own pages, such as "Homologation in Motorsports," or "Homologation in Law," etc? Thoughts? I also greatly clarified on some things and added some detail, but didn't have a chance to add citations yet; I will do that soon. Srajan01 (talk) 06:30, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

The word 'Harmonization' used in this explannation as synonymous with 'Homologation' may not be correct. Harmonization is used when an effort is made in case of more than two standards from different sources (for example countries) to bring on to a common platform; Whereas Homologation still can be used where certification requirements are to be met of a product as per the specified standard even if it is one source. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Pnrangan (talkcontribs) 09:44, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

I agree with Pnrangan: homologation and harmonization are not related to each other, so I propose to delete the bit that suggests this by, say, 8th October 2012 provided I remember. Stop me before then if you disagree. Homologation in French is about an official body approving something so that it has the force of law, confirming a sports record, or offically declaring that something satisfies the official standards (that's my quick translation of the 3 meanings offered in the Petit Robert dictionary for the verb homologuer); harmonisation in French and British English is about making the laws of all the European Union states more and more similar to each other.UBJ 43X (talk) 19:25, 4 October 2012 (UTC)
Done. Have removed the incorrect sentences confusing homologation with harmonization.UBJ 43X (talk) 07:32, 8 October 2012 (UTC)
