ADR 4/05 Standards/Australian Design Rules for Vehicles as made
This standard is being made to re-align ADR 4 with the latest version of the international standard for seatbelts, UNECE R 16/06. This introduces a requirement for advanced seatbelt reminder systems to be fitted to the driver’s seat in passenger cars, passenger vans and Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs) and updates the requirements for seatbelts, including those for folding seats, and brings in a minor test relaxation.
