On 27 November 2019, the EU adopted the General Safety Regulation (GSR) , with the aim of drastically reducing the number of deaths, serious injuries and accidents in the EU. This was to be achieved by introducing the latest safety technologies as standard equipment in new vehicles. These systems range from alcohol immobilisers and intelligent speed assistants to tire pressure monitoring systems, lane changing assistants and many other intelligent driver assistance systems. The general requirements apply to passenger cars and light commercial vehicles as well as buses and heavy commercial vehicles. Additional safety requirements have also been imposed on the various types of vehicles. These new requirements will be introduced successively for new car models (EU type-approval) and for vehicle registrations.
