New proposal for seatbelt reminders on all seats in passenger cars at the UNECE


Publication date: 25 May 2015


Last week Japan, Korea and the European Commission tabled a proposal to amend the regulation on seatbelts with regards to seatbelt reminders (SBR) at an UNECE meeting of the working party on passive safety (GRSP). The proposal calls for the inclusion of advanced SBRs that detect passenger occupancy on the front seats of passenger cars and commercial trucks (vehicle types M and N). In the EU, these reminders are currently required only for the driver seat of passenger cars.

The proposal presented to the UNECE further calls for the inclusion of simple SBRs based on buckle-monitoring on the rear seats of passenger cars. This system knows if a seat-belt is or isn’t buckled (regardless of whether a passenger is actually seating on the seat). In the EU there are, as yet, no provisions for any type of SBRs on rear seats of passenger cars.


Earlier this year FIA had called for the mandatory introduction of SBRs on all seats of passenger cars in its policy position to the European Commission on the revision of the General Safety Regulation that is likely to take place in 2016.
