CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE

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.
