The Dutch National Police, the Netherlands Vehicle Authority and the Department of Waterways and Public Works (RWS) have taken the initiative to submit a request to the TRAN committee of the European Parliament to also apply EDR in PTW vehicles. By means of a draft, it will be urged to add the category L3 (motorcycles) in the implementation of Article 6 of the General Safety Regulation - data recorder for incidents.

EDR-DSSAD-04-05 Consolidated Review of Contracting Party EDR Activities & Way Forward Netherlands

1. Review of the existing national/regional activities EDR National activities of the Netherlands

• Accident Reconstruction and Analysis. By national authorities like National Forensic Institute, Police VOA (Traffic Incident Analysis), Rijkswaterstaat (Road Management Authority), RDW (Registration and Type Approval Authority), SWOV (Scientific Research traffic Incidents).

• Fraud investigation. Fraud investigation by insurance companies and RDW.

• EDR for motorcycles. The Police are performing a lobby (at the EU and TRAN, supported by the FIM) to improve and speed up the EDR for motorcycles within the General Safety Regulation (in many accidents in the Netherlands motorcycles are involved).

• Data Taskforce. An international coalition is working to distribute SRTI (Safety Regulated Traffic Information) data so that it can be reused by other vehicles. When an accident happens, this information can also be used as SRTI data.

2. Way forward for EDR Way forward for EDR of the Netherlands

• Since Motorcycles are involved in a lot of accidents, the Netherlands would like to extend the scope of the EDR with motorcycles as soon as possible.

• Since pedestrians and cyclists are involved in a lot of accidents, the Netherlands would like to extend the scope of the EDR with pedestrians and cyclists as soon as possible.

Kees Duivestein / Jan Paul Peters will present the paper "Event Data Recorders and Powered Two-Wheelers" at the upcoming IFZ conference in Cologne.

EDR : Automated/Autonomous and Connected Vehicles (GRVA).

Hans Bot , February 2020

To achieve the implementation of the GSR, TRL has been entrusted by the European Commission with a task to provide technical support in the development of the regulation text. The objective of the Commission is to achieve a high level of harmonization among the Parties, based on the text stipulating the collection and in-vehicle storage of a wide range of collision-related data elements, for both conventional and automated vehicles, and providing for appropriate privacy-by-design requirements. The Commission expects the Regulation to be endorsed by the WP29 in November 2020. This is necessary to take the future UN Regulation into account while drafting the implementing measures under the GSR. After November 2020, the work should continue on the provisions on EDR for heavy vehicles, required in the EU as from 2026.

GRVA's priorities include: 

  • Safety and security of vehicle automation and connectivity:

    • (See the Framework Document on Automated Vehicles)

    • Functional requirements ("FRAV")

    • Validation Method for Automated Driving ("VMAD")

    • Cybersecurity (and software updates)

    • EDR / Data Storage System for Automated Driving (currently)

The first EDR conference in 2020 - Canceled

Hans Bot. January 22, 2020

Unfortunately, we have to announce that the planned conference on June 25 and 26, 2020, will not take place.
We had a unique list of speakers, a unique location,

but too few participants.​

We needed a minimum of 100 participants. ​

Up to Wednesday, January 22, 2020, only 16 people have completed the participation form. ​

 That's why we will stop the preparations for the conference.

General Safety Regulation has been published

Hans Bot / Jan Paul Peters Delft, The Netherlands, 2019, December 16

EDR mandatory in 2022 Event Data Recorders in new cars will be for new models from 6 July 2022 and for new cars from 7 July 2024. This is the consequence of the publication of the GSR. For the official text of the 23 languages see:


The unofficially called General Safety Regulation has been published as regulation (EU)2019/2144 in the Official Journal of the EU L325 on 16 December 2019.  According to article 20, the Regulation will enter into force the 20th day after the publication. That means that from the 5th of January 2020  the Regulation is directly applicable to all citizens and enterprises in the EU as European law. The regulation will require the equipment of ADAS systems, pedestrian protection and Event Data Recorders (EDR) in new motor vehicles.  


The regulation has foreseen a number of transition periods. The first phase including EDR will enter into force for new type-approvals from 6 July 2022 and for new registrations from 7 July 2024 as far as passenger cars and vans concerned. For trucks and buses, these dates are 7 January 2026 and 7 January 2029.


For the second phase, applicable to advanced emergency braking for pedestrian and cyclist and for advanced driver distraction warning systems, the dates are 7 July 2024 resp. 7 July 2026 for all categories. The technical requirements for EDR and the different ADAS systems will be published later by the European Commission in a so-called delegated act.


Article 6 of the Regulation stipulates that these technical requirements have to be ready 15 months before the first application date, which is 7 April 2021. The technical requirements for EDR are at this moment prepared by an informal working group at the UNECE World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations (WP.29). The European Commission, as well as the authorities from many countries, including EU Member States, the USA, China, Japan, NGO’s and Manufacturers, participate in this working group. Differences in priorities, safety philosophies and above all cultural differences have to overcome before finding a consensus.


The aim is that the draft requirements are ready for adoption by WP29 in November 2020. That would allow adoption as a delegated act by the European Commission, before the date required by the regulation (April 2021). To achieve this schedule and avoid a delay in the introduction of EDR, the working group is discussing a two-phase introduction of EDR: in 2022 a first phase based on the current US requirements plus some easy to agree on amendments and the second phase with all parameters for ADAS systems in 2025.


International Road Safety Award


Just before the publication of the regulation, the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) and the European Commission received the International Road Safety Award from HRH Prince Michael of Kent for providing the evidence for the adoption of the 2019 Pedestrian and General Safety Regulations. Since 2014, the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL), has worked with the European Commission to assess the feasibility, costs, and benefits of over 50 safety measures to update mandatory new vehicle safety standards in Europe.


Bringing together all stakeholders, the team identified a package of measures that offer maximum casualty benefit while being cost-effective for society. This package, which will be incorporated into the Pedestrian and General Safety Regulations and is predicted to save 25,000 lives in EU-28 over the next 16 years. Links: Road Safety AwardsArticle + Pictures

Development of electronics in Motorcycles

will facilitate EDR-capability

Jan Paul Peters and Kees Duivestein, April 26, 2019

In Europe, Jan Paul Peters and Kees Duivestein started a tour to Head Quarters of the major Motorcycle OEM’s. As it seems EDR currently isn’t a major topic in the Motorcycle Industry, although the potential contribution to safety and reducing casualties on European roads certainly isn’t neglected.


For now upcoming implementation as the (Delegated) Regulation (EU) Nr. 134/2014 of 16 December 2013 attracts more attention, especially the IUPR (In-Use Performance Ratio) with regard to the Euro 5 environmental performance of motorcycles.


The Regulation will be effective in 2024 but there is still no picture of "how", in particular, the PEMS (Portable Emissions Measurement System), which is quite a challenge for motorcycles for practical reasons.


But the technical consequences such as the OBD for Motorcycles also implicates steps further to EDR-capability. For one of the OEM's, some actions are set to get the complete overview of models with EDR-capability.


Forensic researchers of the Dutch Police force will keep this in mind in case relevant accidents with these models will occur in the near future. With MODARTS we will continue our efforts to get the full picture of required specifications for Motorcycle EDR.
