ATF+4® Licensing Program
About the ATF+4® Licensing Program
The ATF+4® Automatic Transmission Fluid formulation is exclusive to FCA US LLC and ATF+4 is a registered trademark. The Center for Quality Assurance (CQA) monitors quality standards through each step in the fluid's progress from license through commercialization. Each Blender and Rebrander involved in the production and sale of ATF+4 must be licensed, facility accredited and undergo a range of product testing prior to final licensing. Licensed brand names are periodically market-sampled to ensure consistent quality.
ATF+4® Blender Licensing
A Blender is a company that manufactures an approved formulation of ATF+4 and then sells the product to licensed Rebranders or to the marketplace. Each formulation must have a unique license number.
Companies interested in becoming licensed Blenders must submit a request for qualification of proposed formulations to CQA. The ATF+4 specification requires a unique additive system added to base oils. FCA US LLC's ATF Committee reviews each Blender application and reviews test data. Required testing includes physical and chemical, wear, friction and elastomer testing. If the applicant's qualification sample is approved, the Blender then submits licensing documents, including copies of intended product labels for approval.

ATF+4 Rebrander Licensing
A Rebrander is a company that purchases approved ATF+4 from a licensed Blender and then packages and markets the product under its own trade name and license number.
Companies that want to package fluid formulated and manufactured by licensed Blenders must submit licensing documents, including product labels, to CQA. Production samples are also submitted to CQA for verification testing.
