According to InterRegs, at the November session of the World Forum for the Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations (also known as WP.29), the draft global technical regulation (GTR) on pedestrian protection was finally adopted. The group of experts responsible for drafting the GTR included automotive industry and government agency representatives from Europe, Japan, and the U.S. It is based on the European Commission pedestrian-protection directive and spells out performance requirements for the front of vehicles, measured using headform and legform impact tests. It is expected that the GTR (GTR No. 9) will be formally published early in 2009.
