ANCAP Assessments from 2023: What’s changing and what you need to know

Most large fleets incorporate a 5 star ANCAP SAFETY rating as part of their purchasing checklists. But do you know what goes into arriving at a 5 star safety rating and why? 

Structural protection and the ability to actively avoid a crash are essential to achieve a 5 star ANCAP SAFETY rating but the safest vehicles can also help prevent or reduce the effects of a crash through active safety systems. 

Striking the right balance between these elements will become even more important as vehicles further evolve, and technology progresses to allow assisted driving, and eventually automated driving. 

In this session you’ll learn how the focus of ANCAP’s testing protocols is changing over time and why, and be given a sneak preview of what’s coming from 2023. 

All session attendees will be gifted ten Towards Zero learning paths which incorporate two online AfMA courses: 

  • Understanding ANCAP Safety Ratings 
  • Understanding Vehicle Safety Features
