137. The Chair of GRBP presented a draft new UN Regulation on reverse warning (agenda item 4.12.1). The World Forum considered this proposal and recommended its submission to AC.1 for voting.
138. The representative of United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, while recognizing the importance of the above draft new UN Regulation for safety, pointed out that his delegation would not be in a position to vote in favour of it, because of its incompatibility with the applicable national restrictions on reversing alarms during night hours (WP.29-187-11). He proposed to extend the pause function foreseen by the new Regulation to also cover such national restrictions and presented further amendments to this extent (WP.29-187-12).
139. The World Forum took note of WP.29-187-11 and WP.29-187-12 and invited United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to submit them for consideration to the next GRBP session in September 2022.
140. The WP.29 Secretary reminded the delegation of United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland that their decision not to apply the new Regulation in its original form should be notified to the Office of Legal Affairs in New York (Article 1, para. 4 of the 1958 Agreement).
