In case of serious accidents, seconds may make the difference between life and death, full recovery or a lifelong disability. Emergency rescue teams have to be able to act immediately. Now, rescuers will be able to remove vehicle occupants as fast and as safely as possible thanks to a new standard specifying the basic format of on-board rescue sheets for light vehicles.
ISO standards and transport
From submarines to spacecraft, ISO standards cover all aspects of transport, including road vehicles, ships, airplanes and aerospace systems.
ISO standards in the automotive industry, for example, help ensure the high quality and performance of cars and trucks and improve vehicle and road traffic safety, providing benefits for manufacturers, regulators, vehicle owners and road users.
In the aerospace industry, safe and reliable construction and maintenance of aircraft are paramount, to which standards contribute.
ISO standards also enable innovation, by developing terminology and guidelines for new technology as seen in intelligent transport systems, electric cars and other solutions to reduce our impact on the environment.
