It is tasked with creating a uniform system of regulations, called UN Regulationsfor vehicle design to facilitate international trade. The forum works on regulations covering vehicle safetyenvironmental protectionenergy efficiency and theft -resistance.

World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations

This forms a legal framework wherein participating countries contracting parties agree on a common set of technical prescriptions and protocols for type approval of vehicles and components. However, since many non-European countries are now contracting parties to the Agreement, the regulations are dce entitled “UN Regulations”.

Originally, the agreement allowed participation of ECE member countries only, but in the agreement was revised to allow non-ECE members to participate. As of [update]the participants to the Agreement, with their UN country code, were:. ecd

Most countries, even if not formally participating in the agreement, recognise the UN Regulations and either mirror the UN Regulations’ content in their own national e42, or permit the import, registration, and use of UN type-approved vehicles, or both. The United States and Canada are the two significant exceptions; the UN regulations are generally not recognised and UN-compliant vehicles and equipment are not authorised for import, sale, or use in the two regions, unless they are tested to be compliant with the region’s car safety laws, or for limited non driving use e.

The Agreement operates on the principles of type approval and reciprocal recognition. Sce country that accedes to the Agreement has authority to test and approve any manufacturer’s design of a regulated product, regardless r2 the country in which that ecs was produced.


Each individual design from each individual manufacturer is counted as one individual type. Once any acceding ecs grants a type approval, every other acceding country is obliged to honor that type approval and regard that vehicle or item of motor vehicle equipment as legal for import, sale and use.

Items type-approved according to a UN Regulation are marked with an E and a number, within a circle. The number indicates which country approved the item, and other surrounding letters ec digits indicate the precise version of the regulation met and the type approval number, respectively. Although all countries’ type approvals are legally equivalent, there are real and perceived differences in the rigour with which the regulations and protocols are applied by different national type approval authorities.

Some countries have their own national standards for granting type approvals, which may be e42 stringent than called for by the UN regulations themselves.

Within the auto parts industry, a German E1 type approval, for example, is regarded as a measure of insurance against suspicion of poor quality or an undeserved type approval. As of [update]there are UN Regulations appended to the Agreement; most regulations cover a single vehicle component or technology. A partial list of current regulations applying to passenger cars follows different regulations may apply to heavy vehicles, motorcycles, etc.

However, both the United States and Canada are parties to the Agreement. UN-specification vehicles and components which do not also comply with the US regulations therefore cannot be wce to the US without extensive modifications.

It should be noted, however, that the impending Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement between Canada and the European Union could see Canada recognise more UN Regulations as acceptable alternatives to the Canadian regulations. Rather than a UN-style system of type approvals, the US and Canadian auto safety regulations operate on the principle of self-certification, wherein the manufacturer or importer of a vehicle or item of motor ecr equipment certifies—i.

If reason develops to believe the certification was false or improper — i. Vehicle and equipment makers are permitted to appeal such penalties, but this is a difficult direction. Historically, one of the most conspicuous differences between UN and US regulations was the design and performance of headlamps.


Given the size of the US vehicle market, and differing marketing strategies in North America vs. Following its mission to harmonize vehicle regulations, the UNECE solved the main issues Administrative Provisions for Type approval opposed to self-certification and mutual recognition of Type Approvals preventing non-signatory Countries to the Agreement to fully participate to its activities.

The Agreement is born to produce meta regulations called Global Technical Regulations without administrative procedures for type approval and so, without the principle of mutual recognition of Type Approvals. The text includes a record of the technical rationale, the research sources used, cost and benefit considerations, and references to data consulted. The Contracting Parties use their nationally established rulemaking processes when transposing UN GTRs into their national legislation. As part of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership TTIP negotiations, the issues of divergent standards in automobile regulatory structure are being investigated.

TTIP negotiators are seeking to identify ways to narrow the regulatory differences, potentially reducing costs and spurring additional trade in vehicles. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
