15. The expert from Japan presented ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2015/25 amending the requirements for fire prevention under certain conditions in the event of a rear collision. GRSG adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2015/25 as reproduced below and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their March 2016 sessions, as draft Supplement 1 to the 03 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 34.
Annex 4, paragraph 2.5.4., amend to read:
“2.5.4. At the moment of collision the velocity of the centre of percussion of the pendulum shall be between 48 and 52 km/h.”
16. The expert from India introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2015/26 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 raised concerns in the absence of evidence on the need for such an amendment. GRSG endorsed the suggestion by the expert from EC to review the proposal by India, once the application of the 03 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 34 would become mandatory in the European Union. GRSG agreed to remove, in the meantime, this item from the agenda.
