White Paper: UNECE Cybersecurity Regulation (R155)

State of the Art and Relation With ISO 21434 and TISAX Standards

The UNECE (United Nations Economic Commission for Europe) has been working in the past years on a new regulation, focused on Cybersecurity for road vehicles. The regulation has been formally adopted in June 2020 and has entered into force from January 2021. Under the new regulation, vehicle manufacturers (OEMs) will need to satisfy the Cyber Security Management System (CSMS) requirements in order to be allowed to apply for type approval of specific vehicle types.
