Through EuroTest, 18 automobile clubs in 17 countries, members of the FIA, have been putting the quality and safety of mobility in Europe to the test since 2000 for the benefit of their members and all mobile consumers in Europe. The EuroTest partners have constantly called for a Europe where the mobile consumer can circulate freely using quality infrastructure and in safety.
Improvements have been achieved for the consumer thanks to immediate widespread publication of the test results – good and bad – in national media Europe wide, supported by clubs’ demands addressed directly to responsible authorities and political and legislative forums about identified shortcomings.
What is EuroTest?
EuroTest has put the quality and safety of Europe’s mobility infrastructure to the test since 2000. The programme is conducted by a consortium of European automobile clubs, under the aegis of the FIA – Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile in Brussels who collectively represent over 34 million mobile European consumers.
In defence of consumer interests, EuroTest surveys have been built on test methodologies that draw on the best available practices and regulations. All EuroTests use a common rating scheme and each test is repeated periodically to check for enhancements.
EuroTest is about “making the difference”. Test results published Europe wide in the media, calls for new measures, advice to operators and consumers all play a role. Improvements are achieved for consumers.
National and European authorities, in response to identified shortcomings, often answer positively.
Key EuroTest objectives
- Raise public awareness about the actual state of mobility in Europe
- Call for the quality and safety standards we believe mobile consumers deserve
- Provide mobile consumers with tips and recommendations so they can safeguard their own mobility
- Stimulate public debate about identified failings and if necessary call for regulations
