UN Regulation No. 95
Occupant Protection in Lateral Collisions

Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Vehicles with regard to the Protection of the Occupants in the Event of a Lateral Collision

This regulation applies to the lateral collision behavior of the structure of the passenger compartment of M1 and N1 categories of vehicles where the “R” point of the lowest seat is not more than 700 mm from ground level when the unladen vehicle plus 100 kg (i.e., the mass of a side impact dummy plus instrumentation) is at rest.

Briefly, the test involves a 50 km/h impact of a vehicle equipped with a Hybrid III 50th percentile male driver and an HIII 5th percentile female front passenger. Aimed particularly at reducing injuries to the elderly, the test sets a 42 mm ThCC threshold that will be strengthened to 34 mm for the HIII 5F in 2020 (via the 01 series amendments).
