Global NCAP aims to support the development of new consumer crash test programmes in emerging markets where vehicle growth is strong but independent consumer information on crashworthiness is frequently not readily available.
To achieve this Global NCAP will offer support to New Car Assessment Programmes (NCAPs) in emerging economies and regions by offering technical support guidance and quality assurance.
Global NCAP will also provide a platform for cooperation for NCAPs and like organisations around the world to share best practice, to further exchange information, and to promote the use of consumer information to encourage the manufacture of safer cars across the global automotive market.
Global NCAP will carry out research on innovations in vehicle safety technologies, their application in global markets, the range of policies that will accelerate their use and monitor the progress of vehicle safety across the globe.
Global NCAP will also develop a global awards scheme to recognise achievement in vehicle safety, innovation in safety related technologies, and products.
