National Vehicle Safety Workshop in Argentina

At the request of the Government of Argentina, a two-day workshop was hosted by the National Road Safety Agency in Buenos Aires on 31 July and 1 August, with ECE, ECLAC and the Special Envoy’s Secretariat as co-organizers.
The workshop brought together over 40 national stakeholders for an in-depth discussion of the United Nations legal instruments, notably, the 1958 and 1998 Agreements on vehicle constructions administered by WP.29. The overview of Argentina’s legislation and regulatory framework as well as opportunities for improvement were also discussed, along with recommended next steps and a plan of action.
A roadmap will be developed following the workshop to enhanced regional dialogue, encouraging adoption of minimum vehicle safety requirements in the country and region.
