Automotive Industry Standards Committee
The Automotive Industry Standards Committee (AISC) was set up in 1997 by the Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways to assess safety in the design, construction, operation and maintenance of motor vehicles. It was constituted under the Central motor Vehicles Rules –Technical Standing Committee. It has representatives from relevant ministries, testing agencies, BIS etc. The Committee recently amended its AIS-113 Standard to include the safety requirement of Road-Trains.
