ASAM – CITA: Manifest of Understanding


30 Sep 2020



Last 16 September 2020, CITA (the International Motor Vehicle Inspection Committee) and ASAM (Association for Standardization of Automation and Measuring Systems) agreed and signed a Manifest of Understanding that defines the framework for the collaboration between both organizations.

Acknowledging that standardized and non-discriminatory access to vehicle data is an essential condition for safe and clean vehicles, and recognizing that the fast evolution of vehicle and communication technologies challenges the standardization processes, the aim of this collaboration is to promote the understanding of the requirements for valid inspection and compliance of automated vehicles.

Moreover, it intends to facilitate the development of appropriate and efficient standardization schemes, and to foster the understanding of the mode of operation of automated vehicles.
