History of the VESC

Vehicle Equipment Safety Commission (VESC) was created by congress to assist states in creating rules, regulations or codes, embodying performance requirements or restrictions "for items of motor vehicle equipment."

While the VESC has not met since 1983, due to long-term funding problems it is the hope that this website will eventually be used to assist manufacturers in meeting still relevant VESC regulations and in states to reenact the VESC.

VESC files were transferred to AMECA from the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators. AMECA has all original signed agreements regarding VESC Registration.

The VESC Files were held by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) for many sears. Subsequent to AAMVA discontinuing it’s Equipment Compliance Program and the creation of the Automotive Manufacturers Equipment Compliance Agency (AMECA) by former AAMVA staff members to continue the Equipment Compliance Program the VESC files were transferred to AMECA.
