The tests allow customers to measure ATD injury levels; in conjunction with expert witness assessments, the tests inform the end user of the suitability of the product for entry into service. Prior to any testing commencing, a test plan will be agreed between the manufacturer and the witnessing authority to ensure that the agreed combination of tests enables the vehicle manufacturer to meet the requirements of the witnessing authorities. Millbrook can support development testing prior to witnessed testing.
