In-service safety for automated vehicles


We are developing and assessing options to assure the safe operation of automated vehicles while they are in service.

During July and August 2019 we consulted with stakeholders and received submissions on our consultation Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) which assessed options to manage the in-service safety of automated vehicles.

The consultation RIS examined:

•    the role of different parties in the in-service safety of automated vehicles
•    any additional safety duties that should apply to these parties
•    the institutional and regulatory arrangements to support these duties.

Consultation closed on Monday, 26 August 2019. We are now analysing submissions to deliver a decision RIS to transport ministers in May 2020.
