Session 79 | Geneva | 16-20 Feb 2015
Agenda Item 10. (c) Regulation No. 13-H
Working Party on Brakes and Running Gear | Session 76 | 17-21 Feb 2014

7. This item was discussed in conjunction with agenda item 10(b), see para. 36. The expert from OICA introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2014/10 as amended by GRRF-76-18 proposing to delete the provisions related to the introduction of ESC and BAS in the two draft Regulations mentioned in para. 36. in favour of separate and discrete regulations for these technologies. GRRF agreed to resume consideration of this item and keep the documentation on the agenda of the September 2014 session of GRRF.

36. The expert from OICA introduced a proposal for a draft Regulation on Brake Assist Systems (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2014/11 amended by GRRF-76-14 and GRRF-76-33) and a proposal for a draft Regulation on Electronic Stability Control (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2014/12 amended by GRRF-76-13). Addressing the open question on how to deal with the original Annex 8 of Regulation No. 13-H, he presented GRRF-76-40 and the corresponding proposal amending the draft mentioned above (GRRF-76-22 and GRRF-76-23). GRRF agreed to resume consideration of this item and keep the documentation on the agenda of the September 2014 session of GRRF.

45. The expert from OICA introduced GRRF-79-05, GRRF-79-06 and GRRF 79 07 superseding official proposals for separate Regulations on Brake Assist Systems (BAS) (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2014/11) and on Electronic Stability Control (ESC) (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2014/12) extracted from Regulation No. 13 H (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2014/10). GRRF agreed that further work e.g. on the transitional provisions, was necessary to make sure that Countries mandating the fitment of ESC or BAS on the basis of the existing text of Regulation No. 13-H would be able to continue to mandate this fitment, unaffected by this extraction. The expert from UK agreed to lead an ad-hoc group of interested members on addressing the transitional provisions, to establish a methodology for all of the regulations that would need to be separated for IWVTA. GRRF agreed to reconsider this proposal at its September 2015 session.
