Russia allowed the production of Euro-0 cars without ABS, EPS and airbags


 

RusAutoNews.- As reported by Kommersant, the Russian Government published the Decree No 855 which allows the carmakers producing new cars without ABS and EPS. The ERA-GLONASS emergency warning system may not have the function of automatic operation after an accident. The requirements for certification of cars are simplified, which eliminates the need for airbags and seat belt pretensioners.

In addition, all environmental standards are now in force in Russia, from Euro-0 to Euro-5, which allows the production of cars with the exhaust emissions standards of the year 1988.

The global chip shortage and the sanctions imposed on Russia negatively affect the vehicle production in the country.

The validity period of the new decree is set until February 1, 2023.
