Euro NCAP elects Pierre Castaing as president

Euro NCAP has elected Pierre Castaing as president and chairman of the Board of Directors for the next two years.

Euro NCAP has elected Pierre Castaing as president and chairman of the Board of Directors for the next two years. 

Castaing succeeds Andrew Miller, who resigned from the post last month. Castaing is originally an aeronautical engineer, but has worked in the field of personal protection and vehicle safety for more than three decades.

He has served as a member of Euro NCAP’s Board of Directors since 2000.

Castaing is currently head of Regulatory Affairs for the Utac Ceram Group, holding the position since July 2012, following previous roles as head of Passive Safety Unit and head of Safety Department at Utac in Linas-Montlhéry.

He has monitored and steered many regulatory developments in Geneva and Brussels, having worked closely with the automotive industry and national authorities on road safety.

“I am delighted to be given the opportunity to be the president of Euro NCAP and I am looking forward to working with the board members to implement the organisation’s ambitious plans,” said Castaing.

“Euro NCAP has an important role in the promotion of safety systems in new vehicles sold in Europe, thanks to its ability to continually adapt its requirements, encouraging industry to reach the best achievable level of safety in an affordable way.”
