CCLC Approves First Safety Standards for Vehicles

The Cabinet Committee on Legislative Cases (CCLC) has approved the country’s first-ever safety standards for the auto sector including helmets for motorcycle riders.

With the approval by CCLC the auto sector safety standards including electric vehicles (EVs) would be forwarded to the Federal Cabinet for ratification, eventually leading to their implementation.

The auto companies claim to follow Japanese standards, but there is no standard and clear definition of helmets for motorcycle riders. The auto sector, which falls under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Industries, has been advocating that the Pakistan Standards and Quality Control Authority (PSQCA) which is currently authorized to inspect and certify 166 food and non-food items, is needed to first develop labs and expertise to check the quality of parts.
