ANCAP, the Australasian New Car Assessment Program, ANCAP Safety, for Aust. and NZ is the testing body.
They perform benchmark tests, assessing new cars on a number of safety factors then informing car buyers in Aust and NZ.
More simply, they crash test cars and conduct performance assessments on safety features and technologies and publish the results on a 5 star rating system of relative performance.
The Australia equivalent of Euro NCAP, ANCAP is one of nine similar boards around the world. It’s been operating in Australia for 30 years.
In Australia, there’s 21 Member organisation, including Aust. and NZ State and Fed Govt’s, State based Auto Associations, and other government bodies.
