Applus+ IDIADA's Technical leader expert in Passive Safety Systems Homologations, Marta Anglès, has led an international working subgroup of the United Nations that has developed a proposal for a regulation to improve the safety of child restraint systems in buses and coaches.
This document, already approved by the UN passive safety working group, will be ratified at the November meeting of the World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations, the body responsible for creating a uniform international system of vehicle design regulations.
The Regulation lays down the technical and administrative requirements that three-point restraint systems in coaches must meet in order to improve child restraint in the event of an accident. At a later stage, it is planned to extend the scope of this Regulation to incorporate the requirements to be met by two-point restraint systems as well. This second phase, given the success of the first, will also be led by Marta Anglès.
“The development of this regulation and its incorporation by the United Nations is a great achievement for the Homologations team and for Applus+ IDIADA as a whole, as well as being a contribution to child safety in public transport”, stated Josep Mata, Homologation Director at Applus+ IDIADA.
