CTIF / ISO 17840 - The World Wide Safety Standard for Vehicles

Our ultimate aim: A worldwide safety & extrication standard for all vehicle types


- Think Globally, Act Locally!


CTIF, Euro NCAP and SIS have since 2019 finalized an international cooperation to develop and international standard, the ISO standard 17840 "Rescue Information",  for the entire transport sector.

Chose your information package below, depending on if you are an end user, or if you are a manufacturer / decision maker within the transport sector:

First & second responders, public service organisations and educational organisations can download free examples of ISO 17840 pictograms, templates for creating rescues sheets for any vehicle, private or commercial, and everything else you need for creating Emergency Response Guides for training purposes and serving as guides for local rescue procedures. In this section, you can also download the free Euro Rescue App, with ISO compliant rescue sheets for most personal cars, regardless of propulsion technology, sold within Europe.
