The objective of this guide is to provide information to help understand the new regulations issued by the World Forum for the Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations (WP.29), a body of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), referring to cybersecurity in vehicles, as well as providing advice to help compliance.

The new normative consists of two regulations, R155 and R156, which stipulate the cybersecurity requirements that manufacturers must meet in order to qualify for the approval of vehicles that are going to circulate in the countries of the European Union, or countries outside the EU that will opt to follow these regulations. Specifically, the R155 concerns the requirements for cybersecurity management, while the R156 stipulates the requirements for software update management.

During the guide, the requirements outlined in both regulations are introduced, along with recommendations and indications on how to comply with them correctly and what internal procedures of manufacturers and suppliers may be affected by the new regulations.
