Australasian New Car Assessment Program
Queensland is one of the key participants of the Australasian New Car Assessment Program* (ANCAP). ANCAP is a high-speed crash test program for vehicles. It is supported by all Australian automobile clubs, the New Zealand auto club, most state government road and transport authorities, and both the Australia and New Zealand federal transport departments.
ANCAP is designed to help improve motor vehicle occupant protection through consumer education and buying power. This is influenced by crash testing popular new cars sold in Australia and New Zealand and publishing the results for each vehicle.
ANCAP has ties with the Euro New Car Assessment Program and communicates with the Japanese and United States New Car Assessment Program groups.
