ANCAP SAFETY is taking a number of precautions to assist in minimising effects on the community. These measures include remote working arrangements for staff and restricted physical contact with the community, our members and stakeholders. These arrangements are not expected to adversely affect the important service we provide to Australian & New Zealand consumers, and ANCAP safety rating information can continue to be accessed via our website. Safety is our priority. Please stay safe.

ANCAP Quick Fact: Are ANCAP safety ratings reviewed?

Once an ANCAP safety rating is awarded to a new vehicle it retains that rating, as, at the time at which it was assessed, it achieved all of the necessary minimum requirements to enable the awarding of that rating.

If improved safety features are added to a rated vehicle, ANCAP may undertake a re-assessment and publish a revised rating. In addition, if safety features are removed, ANCAP may re-assess the rating.

The Rating Year datestamp shown within ANCAP star rating logos or published on indicates the standards against which a vehicle has been assessed.

ANCAP publishes the Rating Year for each car it rates.
