Regulatory framework for testing

International comparison

As uniform regulations and standards for the performance of tests of automated vehicles on public roads have at present not been implemented either within the European Union or at UN level, some countries have already enacted corresponding laws or regulations at the domestic level. These laws and regulations have further substantiated the existing regulatory framework at national level and so made the performance of tests with automated vehicles easier or made them possible at all. Overlaps can often be observed in the individual structure of the national regulatory framework of different countries.
