International Harmonised Research Activities Side Impact Working Group Status Report

This paper reports on the status of work of the International Harmonised Research Activities (IHRA) Side Impact Working Group (SIWG) at its 23rd meeting prior to the 19th ESV conference in Washington in June 2005. This includes decisions made and the reasons for them and represents a final report on this phase of the IHRA work. The IHRA SIWG undertook to coordinate an evaluation program by members of test procedures over the period 2003-2005, with the aim of reporting recommended test procedures to enhance real world safety in side crashes at ESV 2005. The IHRA SIWG provides a crucial framework for targeting studies and research efforts. Currently, no other global framework exists under which this collaborative research effort may be conducted.
