Euro NCAP assessment inspector in Australia as part of world region alignment.

Australasia's independent vehicle safety advocate, ANCAP, has hosted one of Euro NCAP’s vehicle safety assessment inspectors as part of its reciprocal test data sharing and protocol alignment.

Mr Simon Edmonds, a senior vehicle safety inspector attended ANCAP crash test laboratories in Sydney and Melbourne throughout the week as part of a knowledge-sharing and development program in place as part of ANCAP and Euro NCAP’s 2018 harmonisation.

"We not only adopted a common approach to testing, we also integrated policies and assessment processes which are now shared between our two regions,” said ANCAP Chief Executive, Mr James Goodwin.

“Having one of Euro NCAP’s most experienced inspectors here enables the engineers to share experiences and expertise to further develop assessment processes,” Mr Goodwin said.

Dr Michiel van Ratingen, Secretary General of Euro NCAP - “This is an excellent opportunity for information exchange.”

“It is important we collaborate on all levels. We want safer cars for everyone, no matter which country or region they live, and our approach to align with ANCAP from this year is already seeing vehicle manufacturers build cars to a higher standard for both world markets,” Dr van Ratingen said.

ANCAP assessment engineers will attend crash and driver assistance testing in the United Kingdom later this year.
