From January 2021, when the UN Cyber Security Regulation (WP.29) «comes into force,» the parties (countries that signed the 1958 EEC-UN Convention on Vehicle Regulation) will be able to begin incorporating language and final regulatory documents into their national law. Therefore, the entry into force of the regulation at the United Nations and its application in the national law of a given country will not take place simultaneously. For example, if Russia transposed the cybersecurity regulation in July 2021, while Germany would implement the regulation in July 2022, vehicles sold on the Russian market after July 2021 are expected to meet the requirements of «ECE-TRANS-WP29-2020-079-Revised», while vehicles sold in Germany are not expected to meet these requirements until July 2022. This publication provides a comprehensive overview of WP.29, from its inception as a regional forum to its recent transformation into a global forum. The main objective of this document is to present the organizational structure and operational process of WP.29 and its subsidiary bodies, as well as their relationship with specific multinational agreements within the framework of the United Nations. It also outlines the three main EEC-UN agreements on vehicle regulations:1.
