The Framework on Automated/Autonomous and Connected Vehicles (FDAV), developed at the intergovernmental level, forms a novel initiative aimed at harmonizing globally automated driving regulations and creating a more productive environment for innovation.

Since the establishment of GRVA, the Working Party has created a global scheme to develop requirements and guidelines for automated and connected vehicles, namely the Framework on Automated/Autonomous and Connected Vehicles, which largely guides GRVA’s work. This Framework was drafted by China, the European Union, Japan, and the United States of America, endorsed by the World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations and the UNECE Inland Transport Committee. The document defines a safety vision, key safety elements, guidance to the Working Parties of WP.29 as well as a programme of activities.
