GRE
Session 74 | Geneva | 20-23 Oct 2015
Agenda Item 10. New business and late submissions

41. The expert from GTB introduced a final consolidated version of the former 03 series of amendments to Regulation No. 48 (GRE-74-08) which could still be of assistance to the industry and type approval authorities. GRE noted that, under Revision 3 of the 1958 Agreement, a series of amendments to a Regulation, together with all subsequent supplements, would be called “a version of a UN Regulation” and that no further modifications could be made to former versions of a Regulation (“frozen” text). GRE invited experts to verify the consolidation by GTB and to report on any possible inconsistencies. Following such verification, the secretariat was requested to publish the consolidated version of the 03 series of amendments to Regulation No. 48 under an appropriate number.

42. The expert from Poland proposed to introduce a new optional “Class B1” headlamp into Regulation No. 112 (GRE-74-11, GRE-74-23). The experts from Germany, Finland and the Netherlands supported the idea of the Polish proposal and posed clarifying questions. The Chair encouraged all experts to send their comments, if any, to the expert from Poland, with a view to discussing an updated proposal at the next session.

43. GRE took note of a draft list of acronyms/abbreviations used in Regulations under the responsibility of GRE, which had been prepared by the secretariat with the assistance of the experts from the Netherlands and IEC (GRE-74-14). GRE invited experts to send to the secretariat their comments on this list.

44. GRE was informed that Mr. Marcin Gorzkowski (Canada), who had chaired GRE in 2002-2014, would no longer attend its sessions. GRE expressed its high appreciation of Mr. Gorzkowski’s contributions to the work of GRE and wished him success in his future activities.

45. GRE also took note that Mr. Masahito Yamashita (Japan) would no longer attend its sessions. GRE thanked him for his contributions and wished him success in the future.
