This agenda item relates to UN R41 Motorcycle Noise.

4. The expert from IMMA proposed to amend paragraph 8.2. of Regulation No. 41 on the conformity of production (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRB/2015/8), thus formalizing the interpretation agreed upon at the fifty-sixth session of GRB (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRB/54, para. 5). GRB adopted this proposal and requested the secretariat to submit it to the World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations (WP.29) and the Administrative Committee (AC.1) for consideration and vote at their March 2016 sessions as a draft Supplement 4 to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 41.

5. The expert from IMMA proposed to correct minor reference errors in Supplement 2 to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 41 (GRB-62-05). GRB adopted this proposal, as contained in Annex II, and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration and vote at their March 2016 sessions.

6. The expert from IMMA also proposed to extend, until 1 January 2018, the 1 dB(A) allowance for motorcycles tested in the second gear (GRB-62-15). Taking into account interventions of the experts from Germany and EC, GRB did not support this proposal.
