11. The expert from the Russian Federation introduced some clarifications to be included in UN Regulation No. 117, on data processing for the measurement method of tyre deceleration value obtained in differential form dω/dt (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRB/2014/7).

29. The expert from ETRTO introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2014/25 concerning snow tyres for use in severe snow conditions, specifically the items to be listed in the communication form of Annex 1 to UN Regulation No. 117.

30. The expert from ETRTO presented GRRF-78-13 proposing a corrigendum to Supplement 2 to 02 series of UN Regulation No. 117. The proposal noted that the Supplement to UN Regulation No. 117 introducing limits for C2 tyres in paragraph 6.4.1.1. had been adopted after the parallel proposal introducing those for C3 tyres. It highlighted an unintended consequence whereby the limits for C3 tyre had been deleted. Following the discussion, GRRF agreed that, while the consequence was an error, it was not appropriate to correct the regulation using corrigenda and agreed to consider the proposal as a Supplement.

31. GRRF adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2014/25 as reproduced in Annex IV to this report, and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their March 2015 sessions as draft Supplement 7 to 02 series of UN Regulation No. 117.

32. The expert from the Russian Federation, Vice-Chair of the Working Party on Noise (GRB), informed GRRF that a revised version of ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRB/2014/7, including some minor editorial amendments, had been submitted by GRB to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their March 2015 sessions.

Working Party on Brakes and Running Gear | Session 79 | 16-20 Feb 2015

29. The expert from ETRTO introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2015/9 proposing the reintroduction of the transitional provisions related to Supplement 4 to the 02 series of Amendments to Regulation No. 117 (paras. 12.8. and 12.9.) and deleted unintentionally. GRRF recognized that the deletion was not the original intention of the Contracting Parties. The expert from the Russian Federation proposed (GRRF-79-19) to reinstate the Transitional Provisions as well as the reference to Annex 4 in paragraph 2.1. of Annex 3. Based on GRRF-79-19, the Secretariat and the expert from the Russian Federation proposed GRRF-79-33 with amendments aligning the original transitional provisions with the guidelines on Transitional Provisions.

30. GRRF adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2015/9 as amended by Annex II to the session report, and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their June 2015 sessions as draft Supplement 8 to 02 series of Regulation No. 117.
