The United Nations 1958 Agreement is an important international harmonisation tool, besides the 1998 Agreement.

OICA strives at further expanding the number of countries that sign up to this Agreement.  In order to briefly explain the 1958 Agreement concrete functioning, OICA has prepared a Questions and Answers paper that, though not having any legal value, is considered as containing clear and useful information as to what the rights and obligations are for countries becoming Contracting Parties to the 1958 Agreement.
