Global NCAP to host its first World Congress in Delhi

8 February 2018

Global NCAP will host its first ever World Congress in Delhi from September 26 – 29, 2018. The Congress will bring together the community of New Car Assessment Programmes (NCAPs) worldwide to share experience about independent consumer vehicle safety rating. The meeting will also provide a unique opportunity to assess the contribution that safer vehicles can make to the United Nations’ Decade of Action for Road Safety and the Sustainable Development Goals.

The Delhi World Congress will facilitate high level dialogue on a global road map for vehicle safety with the automobile manufacturers, senior policy makers, road safety experts, and fleet managers. A key theme of the World Congress will be how NCAPs worldwide have succeeded in building a market for safer cars by raising consumer awareness of the critical safety choices they make when buying a new vehicle. The experience of NCAPs in South East Asia and Latin America and their relevance to similar emerging markets in India and Africa will also be discussed.

A major feature of the World Congress will be the Indian launch of the Global NCAP , including live demonstrations of life saving crash avoidance technologies, including Electronic Stability Control, as well as the publication of Global NCAP’s latest crash test results in the Safer Cars for India initiative.
