UTAC supports mobility projects in the United States

UTAC au service des projets mobilité à destination des Etats-Unis


Advice on US regulations

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a proposed rule governing the implementation of active emergency braking systems (AEBS) for passenger cars and light trucks.

The aim of this proposal is to avoid or reduce the impact of a collision with a vehicle or pedestrian. This NPRM (Notice of Proposed Rulemaking) also responds to a mandate under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law asking the US Department of Transportation to promulgate a rule requiring vehicles to be equipped with AEBS systems.

NHTSA is proposing that, within three years of the publication of a Final Rule, all AEBS requirements will be applicable, with the exception of manufacturers such as small volume vehicle manufacturers who may be granted an additional year.

To support their customers in the introduction of these new regulations, UTAC teams are putting their specific expertise in US regulations at the service of all US-bound mobility projects, such as identifying the most appropriate regulatory framework for each project, testing and support in contacting the authorities.
