ECE adopts revised requirements on truck cab strength

  • 29-Jul-2010 01:53 EDT

At the June session of the World Forum for the Harmonisation of Vehicle Regulations (also known as WP.29), a major update to the ECE Regulation on the protection of the occupants of commercial vehicle cabs, ECE Regulation No. 29, was adopted, according to InterRegs, an online resource for global vehicle safety and emissions regulations. The current version of ECE 29 (ECE 29.02) specifies requirements on occupant survival space after a front pendulum impact and a roof crush test. The updated requirements, which form the 03 series of amendments to ECE 29, increase the impact energy for the front pendulum impact test, introduce a new pendulum impact test into the A-pillars of the cab, and introduce a new angled roof impact test. Compliance with these new requirements becomes mandatory six years after the final publication of the 03 series of amendments for new types of truck cabs.
