  • 13-Jul-2009 10:28 EDT

Revised versions of Australian Design Rules on braking were published on June 28, according to InterRegs, an online resource for global vehicle safety and emissions regulations. The revised versions mandate the fitment of electronic stability control (ESC) systems to all passenger cars and multipurpose passenger vehicles. ADR 31/02 and ADR 35/03 also require ESC systems to meet the technical requirements specified in either ECE Regulation No. 13H or Global Technical Regulation No. 8. Introduction dates of Nov. 1, 2011, for new types of vehicle, and Nov. 1, 2013, for all new vehicles, are specified.
