Working Party on Passive Safety | Session 54 | 17-20 Dec 2013

28. With reference to the amendment to UN GTR No. 9 proposed under agenda item 3(b) (see para. 9), the expert from OICA introduced a draft parallel amendment to UN Regulation No. 127 (GRSP-54-09-Rev.1) incorporating GRSP-54-38 and superseding ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2011/18 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2011/19. GRSP adopted GRSP-54-09-Rev.1 as reproduced in Annex V of the session report. The secretariat was requested to submit the proposal to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration and vote at their June 2014 sessions as draft Supplement 1 to the UN Regulation.

29. GRSP considered ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2013/26 introducing the FlexPLI provisions into the UN Regulation. GRSP considered and adopted GRSP-54-15-Rev.1 (superseding ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2011/14, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2011/20 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2013/26), as reproduced in Addendum 1 to the session report. The secretariat was requested to submit the proposal to WP.29 and AC.1, for consideration and vote at their June 2014 sessions as draft 01 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 127. GRSP noted that pending values still in square brackets (paras. 1.1. and 1.4. of Annex IV of GRSP-54-15-Rev.1), would be eventually solved at the May 2014 session of GRSP. Finally, the expert from Japan withdrew GRSP-54-39.

9. Moreover, the expert from OICA gave a presentation (GRSP-55-40) on the work progress of the Task Force Bumper Test Area (TF-BTA), a subgroup of the IWG on UN GTR No. 9 – Phase 2 and proposing an amendment (GRSP-55-41) to the provisions of the bumper test.

10. GRSP agreed to resume consideration of this agenda item at its December 2014 session, awaiting the outcome of research on this issue from Contracting Parties concerned.

27. GRSP resumed consideration on the remaining issues of the proposed 01 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 127 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2014/38), such as the tolerances of the flexible pedestrian legform impactor (FlexPLI). GRSP finally adopted GRSP-55-14-Rev.3 (incorporating GRSP-55-24), as reproduced in Annex V to this report. GRSP requested the secretariat to send the proposal (WP.29-163-06) to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration and vote at their June 2014 sessions as a draft amendment to ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2014/38. GRSP also adopted GRSP-55-44, as reproduced in Annex V to this report, to introduce a parallel correction to Supplement 1 of the original version of the UN Regulation (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2014/37). GRSP requested the secretariat to send the proposal (WP.29-163-07) to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration and vote at their June 2014 sessions as a draft amendment to ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2014/37.

28. GRSP agreed to resume consideration at its December 2014 session of this agenda item based on a possible proposal of an Addendum to the M.R.1 to incorporate the FlexPLI.
