Her Majesty's Government how they are working with van and truck manufacturers to improve vehicle safety.

12 July 2017

The fact that the market for road vehicles is a global one has meant that safety standards are developed through international bodies, most notably the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). The UK is actively engaged in such discussions at UNECE and, in advance of meetings and as a matter of routine, consults with the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), who represent the UK industry.
