Cyber-Security & Software update


The UN Regulations 155 (Cyber-Security) and 156 (Software update) introduce new requirements for manufacturers and technical services: in addition to the initial assessment of the manufacturer and the product testing by the technical service, the demonstration of implemented and effective dedicated management systems for cyber-security and software updates is also required in order to obtain Type Approval.

Responsibilities in the approval process in accordance with UN-R155/R156


Software is becoming increasingly important in the road vehicle sector. The Software inside the vehicles needs to be updated to allow new functionalities or to correct faults. Due to many different situations in which Software-Updates in vehicles are already being carried out today, it is necessary to integrate them into the existing Type-Approval processes. Although this classification made below refers to vehicles under the Regulation (EU) 2018/858, it also applies to vehicles under the Regulations (EU) 167/2013 and 168/2013.
