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.

This looked at whether such vehicles could be tested in the UK and which areas of legislation would need to be changed prior to everyday use of driverless cars. \r\n\r\nThe Review found that event data recorders would be an essential element for the widespread use of driverless cars, given the need for a definitive record of the actions the driver and/or vehicle may or may not have taken prior to a collision.\r\n\r\nTherefore, the UK raised this topic during the May 2015 GRSG session and asked that EDR be added to the agenda for the October 2015 GRSG session.
