European Enhanced Vehicle-Safety Committee

WG05: Impact Test Procedures

Impact Test Procedures (1979)

On the basis of the findings of WG 3 and WG 4, this Working Group identified the sort of test procedures which could be expected to produce an improved level of occupant protection, for both front and side impacts.
The final reports of WGs 1 to 5 allowed the EEVC to define, on the basis of European experience and technical knowledge, a sufficiently common view to provide an assessment of the future needs of car safety in Europe.  Following this basic assessment, in the mid-1970s the EEVC turned its attention primarily to the fields of car occupant protection in side impact, and to pedestrian protection by improved design of the fronts of cars.
