12. The expert from UK also reported on the outcome of the group of experts working on updated transitional provisions of UN Regulations Nos. 13-H (GRRF-76-04) and introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2014/16 as amended by GRRF-76-30. GRRF adopted this proposal as reproduced in Annex III to the session report and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their June 2014 sessions as part of the draft Supplement 16 to UN Regulation No. 13-H.

13. At the request of the expert from Japan, GRRF agreed to take note that the consolidation of the transitional provisions does not change the interpretation of the current text of the Regulation (e.g. transitional provisions for supplements). GRRF agreed that the absence of the historical dates from the latest text simplified interpretation of the requirements for the purposes of issuing type approval. GRRF also noted that references to “registration” had been removed in favour of “national or regional type approval” as recommended by the guidelines in ECE/TRANS/WP.29/1044/Rev.1.
