UNECE approves ESC rule for goods vehicles

  • 31-Mar-2008 07:04 EDT

At a recent session of the World Forum for the Harmonisation of Vehicle Regulations (also known as WP.29), amendments to ECE Regulation No. 13 were adopted that will mandate the fitment of electronic stability control (ESC) systems to all goods vehicles and trailers with a gross vehicle weight greater than 3500 kg and to all buses and coaches with more than nine seats, according to InterRegs. The introduction dates for the mandatory fitment of ESC are subject to a phased implementation schedule, but for most of the vehicle categories affected by this regulation, the fitment of an ESC system will become mandatory for new types of vehicle from 2010. The UNECE (United Nations Economic Commission for Europe) notes that approval of a similar requirement for light vehicles is anticipated in 2008.
