Discussions will be all about the European Commission’s proposals published on 17 May for the revision of two critical regulations for road safety: the General Safety (661/2009/EC) and Pedestrian Safety (79/2009/EC) Regulations.

This revision is expected to include a set of new vehicle safety measures, including mandatory installation of new driver assistance technologies, such as Intelligent Speed Assistance (ISA), Automated Emergency Braking (AEB) and Alcohol Interlocks, as well as revised minimum crash testing standards and measures to protect pedestrians and cyclists.

These regulations represent the most direct and effective measures the EU has to further reduce road deaths and injuries. 25,300 people died on EU roads in 2017 – a figure that has hardly budged in four years. A further 135,000 people are seriously injured each year.

Speakers will include:

    • Dieter-Lebrecht Koch MEP (video message)
    • Mehdi Hocine, Elitza Stoyanova, European Commission, Automotive Unit, DG GROW
    • Walter Nissler, Chief of Vehicle Regulation and Transport Innovations Section, UNECE
    • Don DeVol, Director Road Safety, TÜV Thüringen
    • Graziella Jost, ETSC Programme Director
    • Samuel Kenny, Freight Transport Officer, Transport&Environment

This invitation-only event is kindly hosted by Dieter-Lebrecht Koch MEP.
