General Safety Regulation 2

General Safety Regulation 2

The GSR2 regulation covers type approval requirements for motor vehicles (including cars, vans, buses, and trucks) their trailers, systems, components, and separate technical units intended for such vehicles, as regards their general safety and the protection of vehicle occupants and vulnerable road users.

At HORIBA MIRA, we offer a complete managed service across the spectrum of regulations. Our experts have decades of experience analysing legislative requirements and implementing test procedures to ensure your vehicle is compliant

GSR2 was an umbrella term for a group of regulations, split into the following categories:

  • Restraint systems, crash testing, fuel system integrity, HV electrical safety
  • Vulnerable road users, vision and visibility
  • Vehicle chassis, braking, tyres and steering
  • On-board instruments, electrical system, vehicle lighting, protection against unauthorised use / cyber attacks
  • Driver and system behaviour
  • General vehicle construction and features
  • From 6th July 2022, phase 1 is introduced for new vehicle types.
  • From July 2024, phase 2 introduces further requirements, and existing vehicle types must be compliant with phase 1.

HORIBA MIRA has successfully been granted Technical Service Designation by the Netherlands Type Approval Authority. A full list of the subjects in MIRA’s updated RDW designation can be downloaded below.

HORIBA MIRA plans to further extend its Technical Service scope with RDW in the new year introducing more new regulations and will seek to represent other Type Approval Authorities for the GSR2 subjects, creating even more choice for the industry.
