Non-Governmental Organization
International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers

OICA is comprised of 38 national trade associations around the world, including all major automobile manufacturing countries, thereby covering virtually the entire motor vehicle industry all over the world.

OICA’s general purposes are to defend the interests of the vehicle manufacturers, assemblers and importers grouped within their national federations and, in particular:

  • Link the national automobile associations,
  • Study issues of mutual interest relating to the development and future of the automobile industry,
  • Collect and circulate useful information among member associations,
  • Establish policies and positions on issues of mutual interest to the members,
  • Represent the automobile industry at the international level, in particular with intergovernmental and international bodies,
  • Disseminate and promote industry policies and positions among international bodies and the general public.

You can find more information about OICA at their website.

ALKS: Industry comments on the draft UN Regulation (ACSF-25-14)
[" This program is an offshoot of the work on Automatically Commanded Steering Systems (ACSF). The original ACSF mandate envisioned amendments to UN Regulation No. 79 on steering systems to enable approval of automated functions operating at speeds above 10 kph. The ACSF group subsequently proposed to draft a new regulation to address automated lane-keeping systems qualifying as Level 3 automation under the SAE J3016 taxonomy (i.e., lane-keeping systems operating continuously under \"hands off\" driver supervision). The earlier work had envisioned such systems as Category B2 ACSF. Category B1 ACSF covered lane-keeping systems requiring the driver's hands on the steering wheel (at least periodically).

UN R83: Proposal for a new Supplement to 06 and 07 series of amendments (GRPE-80-18/Rev.1)
["Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Vehicles with regard to the Emission of Pollutants According to Engine Fuel Requirements Together with R49, Regulation 83 addresses vehicle emissions. R83 covers emissions from all light vehicles (M1/N1) regardless of engine type and from heavier vehicles only if equipped with a gasoline engine.\r\n\r\nUnder certain circumstances, R83 or R49 can apply to light vehicle CNG/LPG engines as well as to medium passenger and commercial vehicles (M2/N2) equipped with diesel engines.\r\n\r\nR83 also contains provisions specific to hybrid variations of the vehicles under its purview.
