UN Regulations

UN Regulations (previously known as UNECE Regulations) are developed under the 1958 Agreement which has established an integrated global system for the mutual recognition of vehicle-related product and subsystem approvals.

In essence, UN Regulations provide uniform testing, performance, and administrative requirements by which approval authorities of participating countries can certify products for use in motor vehicles. These certifications are then accepted by all signatories to the 1958 Agreement that have adopted each particular regulation within their respective regulatory systems.

Although voluntary, the UN Regulations are tightly woven into the regulatory systems of most Contracting Parties to the 1958 Agreement such that the integration of UN regulation language into local legislation is generally assured. For example, the UN regulatory process has been integrated directly into EU rulemaking such that the use of UN Regulations, where applicable, is often mandatory under EU law.

For more information, see the About WP.29 section.
