New International Standard Published to Assess Glazing Resistance to Intruders

car theifA Technical Committee for the International Organization of Standardization (ISO) has published a new standard on test procedures to assess levels of forced-entry resistance in vehicle security glazing.

“This International Standard’s goal is to quantify how much resistance can be provided by particular system parts (security glazing with associated part of the car body) against rapid unauthorized entry into vehicles,” according to a summary of the standard on the ISO’s website.

The test methods are designed to simulate opportunist theft attacks with simple implements, which could be easily carried. The range of tools includes hand-held and non-powered instruments that could physically provide access to a vehicle.

The standard was development by the ISO’s Road Vehicles Technical Committee, Lighting and Vehicles subcommittee.

Participating countries include Belarus, Canada, China, Egypt, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Netherlands, Russia, Sweden, United Kingdom and the United States.

Observing countries include Argentina, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Finland, Hungary, Iran, Ireland, Mongolia, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey and the Ukraine.
