This agenda item relates to UN R34 Fuel Tanks.
Working Party on General Safety | Session 108 | 4-8 May 2015

64. The expert from Japan proposed to amend the requirements for fire prevention under certain conditions in the event of a rear collision (GRSG-108-12). GRSG welcomed the proposal and agreed to resume consideration of this subject at its next session in October 2015 on the basis of an official document.

65. The expert from India presented GRSG-108-41 proposing to harmonize the scope of UN Regulation No. 34 and to amend the total permissible mass limit to read “2.5 tonnes” instead of “2.8 tonnes”. The expert from Japan was of the opinion that this amendment would lower the stringency of the provisions of the UN Regulation and, therefore, could not support the proposal. GRSG agreed to resume consideration of this subject at its forthcoming session and requested the secretariat to distribute GRSG-108-41 with an official symbol.
