Aims of CRASH

The underlying philosophy of CRASH is to provide motorcyclists with information to help them choose and use the safest motorcycle helmet. It also aims to apply commercial and consumer pressure on helmet manufacturers to market only helmets that perform well beyond the requirements of the Australian/New Zealand Standard 1698: Protective Helmets for Vehicle Users (AS/NZS 1698). The program also intends to provide feedback to the Standards Committee for motorcycle helmets to be used in improving the Standard.
