66. The World Forum noted the consolidated document containing the status of the Agreement (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/1073/Rev.10). WP.29 also noted that Slovenia would be a Contracting Party to the Agreement, effective on 7 July 2014. The secretariat reported that some Contracting Parties had fulfilled their obligation to send their status and final reports, on the progress of transposition of the UN GTRs and their amendments into their domestic law. The representatives of the other Contracting Parties were reminded of their obligation to send the reports on the transposition process through their Permanent Missions in Geneva via the “1998 AGREEMENT-MISSIONS List” electronic system, as mandatorily requested by UN OLA. The World Forum noted that these reports could not be processed if submitted by e-mail to the secretariat.

67. WP.29 agreed that agenda items 5.2 to 5.5 should be considered by AC.3.
