Mr Ian Yarnold (Chair, IWG on Intelligent transport Systems, UNECE) spoke about the work of the UNECE’s Working Party 29 (WP 29) which is the world forum for harmonisation of vehicles. He explained that the WP 29 deals with issues around emissions, general safety, passive safety, lighting and light signaling, noise/tyres, and active safety automatic systems among others. The group works in co-operation with various stakeholders and is open to member states of the UN, relevant non-governmental organisations and international organisations.
