FAREHAM, England, June 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Rami Debouk of the General Motors Research and Development Center in Warren, Michigan, has received the 2014 Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) InterRegs Standards & Regulations Award in recognition of his research, analysis and development of system safety processes and standards.
UK-based InterRegs has been promoting vehicle safety for a number of years by recognising the work of engineers in the global automotive industry.
InterRegs CEO Rebecca Rubio and SAE President Daniel Hancock presented the engraved award trophy to Debouk at this year's SAE Government/Industry Meeting in Washington D.C.
"Each year, it's such a privilege to meet and present this award to an engineer whose work takes the plain words on a page of vehicle regulations or standards and uses them in real-life applications that will either help to protect people or the planet," said Rubio. "Mr. Debouk's work in the safety field is no exception and he is a worthy winner. I am delighted to recognise his contributions and celebrate his achievement in an area that does not always get the attention it deserves."
Debouk has worked since 2000 at the General Motors Electrical and Controls Systems Research Laboratory, where he has been involved in surveying system safety processes and standards used in the analysis of automotive safety critical systems. He was heavily involved in the development of ISO 26262: Functional Safety – Road Vehicles Standard, and is actively involved in several safety-related societies and committees.
"It is truly an honor to be named the winner of the 2014 SAE/InterRegs Standards and Regulations Award," Debouk said. "I was really excited to learn that my work in the area of standards and regulations had been recognized at the highest level by such leading organizations as SAE and InterRegs. I also was humbled to win the award as I know that my name will now be added to a list of distinguished past winners."
InterRegs is an online library of global vehicle safety and emissions regulations and the premier provider of regulations for a majority of automotive OEMs and Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers worldwide. The InterRegs Award was established in 2000 by InterRegs as a way to reward participation in standards and regulations by engineers and to encourage increased participation in the future. The award includes a trophy and $1,000 honorarium.
