    The automotive industry serves the world's markets and must comply with global regulations to ensure that vehicles can be approved by local authorities.

    The automotive industry strives for globally harmonized technical regulations, which are mainly developed at WP.29 (UNECE World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations). The advantages of this global harmonization are simplified market access with lower administrative or technical barriers. In addition to legal requirements, there are also further voluntary requirements on the part of vehicle assessment organizations, standardization organizations, and standardization bodies.
