GlobalAutoRegs

GlobalAutoRegs (GAR) is a technical website for people interested in international motor vehicle safety and environmental regulations. Its purpose is to facilitate access to the activities of the UN World Forum for the Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations (WP.29), especially by people not directly involved with the Forum.

GAR complements the WP.29 website, but is an independent activity conceived for the regulatory community. Most of the materials here link directly to the World Forum website.

So why bother with a website outside the UN? The World Forum website is designed to support the international regulators and other stakeholders working within the Forum. GAR aims to serve the broader community of professionals interested in this work on global regulations.

This means that GAR has a rather different mission. We organize information on the WP.29 activities and documents, including by regulation, so users can focus on specific interests. We build in various tools and functionalities in the hope that these will make it easier, even for those not familiar with WP.29, to find information about the Forum and its regulations.

For those who sign up, GAR provides ways to customize the site content in order to focus on those activities of personal interest. Signing up creates a special "dashboard" where you can select the regulations and other topics of interest to you as well as the level of detail you want to see. This personal page allows you to check quickly for any new activity on your topics. In addition, we provide alerts on significant developments that feed into your content stream.

We hope that you will find GAR useful in your work. GAR is a non-partisan open resource with no outside funding beyond contributions from our users (see below if you'd like to support the site). If you have any questions, suggesitons, or comments, please feel free to contact us via email.

Is GAR Useful?

If you find this website useful, please help us keep it running. We built this site because we believe in the value of WP.29 and global collaboration on uniform regulations. At the same time, running the site does cost time and money. By making small contributions, our users help us cover these costs. So if GAR is helpful to you, please support us. The payment system is simple (by card or PayPal) and secure. Thanks!
