Safety Compliance

Our products are engineered to meet the stringent requirements of the Australian Design Rules and have previously passed rigorous destructive tests without fail. Industrial Evolution continuously strives to meet all the necessary requirements for ADR Certification as outline by Australian law.

Australian Design Rules (ADR)

The Australian Design Rules (ADRs) are national standards for vehicle safety. The ADRs are generally performance based and cover issues such as occupant protection, structures, lighting, noise, engine exhaust emissions, braking and a range of miscellaneous items.

The current standards are administered by the Australian Government under the Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989. The Act requires all road vehicles, whether they are newly manufactured in Australia or are imported as new or second-hand vehicles, to comply with the relevant ADRs at the time of manufacture and supply to the Australian market. When a road vehicle is first used on Australian roads the relevant state or territory government’s legislation generally requires that it continue to comply with the relevant ADRs as at the time of manufacture.

Industrial Evolution design all our InDash brackets to suit the ADR requirements and features; distance from the steering wheel and under windscreen vision. Impact loading of 20 G-force, equivalent to 150 kg InDash Mount pull, so no parts will become a projectile in the event of a collision.

ADR Certification

Whilst we have had our brackets ADR approved in the past, it’s the owner’s responsibility to decide on having ADR certification if the vehicle has been modified from a factory standard vehicle. Australian law suggests that if a vehicle has been modified, there may be a requirement for an individual vehicle be certified by an ADR engineer in your local state. ADR certificates are not transferable from one vehicle to another, which is why we cannot provide a blanket ADR certificate to cover per vehicle type or product type.

We have ADR Engineer contacts in each state if you wish to proceed with Certification.

Certificate & Documentation

Certification is strictly between the client and ADR engineer. Industrial Evolution encourages and supports all clients to work closely with the chosen engineer. ADR Certificates are paid for per client and is under the clients’ ownership. Industrial Evolution can provide product specification sheets to assist in the Certification process. If you have purchased from Industrial Evolution and wish to proceed with Certification, please contact us to formally request these spec documents.

Worldwide Harmonisation

The Australian Government’s policy is to harmonise the national vehicle safety standards with international regulations (ECE Regulations) where possible and consideration is given to the adoption of the international regulations of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). Australia is a signatory to the UNECE 1958 Agreement and the 1998 Agreement. The policy to harmonise is also fulfils World Trade Organisation and Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation commitments.
