GTR No. 9 (Pedestrian safety)

99. The representative of Germany, on behalf of the Chair of the IWG on Phase 2 of the UN GTR No. 9, introduced the fifth progress report of the group (WP.29-161-21). He informed AC.3 that the last meeting of the IWG was held in Paris, on 9-10 September 2013. Experts considered open issues such as injury criteria and femur certification corridors. He added that the IWG had submitted an official proposal for amendments to the UN GTR to incorporate the flexible pedestrian legform impactor (FlexPLI) to the December 2013 session of GRSP. A further proposal had been transmitted to introduce the FlexPLI into M.R.1 as an addendum. He finally announced that the ninth meeting of the IWG would take place in Geneva, on 16-17 December 2013, prior to the GRSP proper session. He expected that the official draft amendment to the UN GTR could be considered by GRSP at its December 2014.
