European Enhanced Vehicle-Safety Committee

The EEVC was founded in 1970 in response to the US Department of Transportation's initiative for an international programme on Experimental Safety Vehicles.

The EEVC steering committee, consisting of representatives from several European Nations, initiates research work in a number of automotive working areas. These research tasks are carried out by a number of specialist Working Groups who operate for over a period of several years giving advice to the Steering Committee who then, in collaboration with other governmental bodies, recommends future courses of action that would lead to improved vehicles with respect to safety.

This website serves as an archive for publications produced by EEVC members in order to continue to make them available to the professional public.
