Document Title: Proposal for Amendment 4 to Revision 2 to the Consolidated Resolution on the Construction of Vehicles
Document Reference Number: WP.29/2013/126
Document prepared by the Forum Secretariat pursuant to the decisions of the Forum, inserting five new regulations annexed to the 1958 Agreement and adding a new Annex 5 on general administrative provisions for revisions and extensions of the type approvals granted in the framework of the UN Regulations annexed to the 1958 Agreement.
42. GRSG noted a recommendation by the Chairs of the Working Parties subsidiary to WP.29 to insert the new provisions for granting revisions and extension to type approvals into the Consolidated Resolution on the Construction of Vehicles (R.E.3) and to refer in the corresponding UN Regulations to that part of R.E.3 (see report ECE/TRANS/WP.29/1104, para. 19). GRSG also noted that the World Forum was expected to consider a concrete proposal for a new Annex A.5 to the R.E.3 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/126) during the forthcoming session in November 2013. The expert from OICA announced that the informal group on the International Whole Vehicle Type Approval (IWVTA) already inserted the new provisions on revisions and extension to type approvals into draft Revision 3 to the 1958 Agreement (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/134).
43. Recalling the adoption of draft amendments to UN Regulations Nos. 18, 34, 35, 43 and 58 at its previous session, GRSG agreed to reconsider the follow-up actions of ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2013/8, awaiting the decision of WP.29.
12. The Chairs of the GRs considered the possible granting of revisions and extensions of the Type Approvals granted in conformity with the UN Regulations annexed to the 1958 Agreement. It was recommended to delete the part related to revisions and extensions from ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/126 awaiting the final Revision 3 of the 1958 Agreement to maintain consistency.
78. The secretariat presented a proposal (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/126) for amending R.E.3 by adding the new UN Regulations in force and a new annex with the concept of Revisions and Extensions to type approvals granted in the framework of the 1958 Agreement. Following the recommendation by AC.2 (see para. 12), WP.29 adopted the proposal, with the deletion of the proposed Annex 5, and requested the secretariat to publish it.
