This agenda item relates to UN R118 Material Burning Behavior.

38. The expert from Germany introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2015/29 and Corr.1 aimed at clarifying the scope and updating the reference to ISO standards as well as the test requirements for electric cables in UN Regulation No. 118. The expert from Finland proposed to correct a reference error in Annex 4, Appendix 1 (GRSG-109-06).

39. GRSG adopted both proposals and requested the secretariat to submit them to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their March 2016 sessions, as draft Supplement 2 to the 02 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 118.

40. The expert from Germany also introduced GRSG-109-09 (superseding document ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2015/28) proposing to insert, as a further improvement of the provisions of UN Regulation No. 118, new test requirements for electric cables sleeves and cable conduits. The proposal received a general support. The expert from OICA suggested clarifying the proposed text of paragraph 1.2. GRSG agreed to have a final review of the proposed transitional provisions at the next session of GRSG and requested the secretariat to circulate GRSG-109-09, as revised, with an official symbol.
