United Kingdom-New Car Assessment Program (Uk-Ncap)
Published May 13, 1996 by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in United States
The United Kingdom is carrying out a study into the feasibility of using the European Experimental Vehicles Committee (EEVC) test procedures for frontal and side impact and pedestrian protection to provide consumer safety information. The first group of tests has just been completed and the assessment is now being made. The study will consider the validity of using data from crash tests to provide reliable, objective consumer information.
The ways in which crash test data might be assessed and supplied to the consumer, in an understandable format, is being studied and the need for such programs to be extended more widely and harmonization is discussed.
