The ISO/SAE 21434 industry standard provides support for meeting the requirements of the UNECE Regulation No. 155 which requires establishment of cybersecurity in all vehicle road types and became mandatory for the approval of all new vehicle types on July 1st 2022, where noncompliance leads to a sales ban in all 64 UNECE member countries.
You can read more about the standard in our Official Publication of ISO/SAE 21434 blog article.
Compliance to more than 100 requirements of ISO/SAE 21434 is the recommended way to comply to UN R155.
Failing to comply with the standard and the regulation will not only lead to a sales ban and financial disasters, but a lack of secure products may also cause you to lose customers and revenue.
In conclusion, insufficient compliance to ISO/SAE 21434 translates into noncompliance with UN R155 and no sales.
Therefore, the sooner you start identifying and closing potential cybersecurity gaps within your organization, processes, or products, with pre-audits, the better. Pre-audits are also best practice in the context of ISO PAS 5112.
