Fact sheet: cars and the General Safety Regulation revision
This fact sheet explains ACEA’s position on the new vehicle safety measures proposed for passenger cars and vans as part of the revision of the EU General Safety Regulation.
In May 2018, the European Commission proposed a revision of the General Safety Regulation (GSR), which specifies the safety systems that new car and van types should come equipped with. This proposal is now under discussion by the European Parliament and the Council.
As this fact sheet shows, the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA) supports a wide array of the safety measures proposed by the Commission. However, the auto industry also believes that some of the proposed measures require further review to ensure a focus on the most effective solutions.
