Session 72 | Geneva | 12-15 Jan 2016
Agenda Item 2. Report on the last sessions of the World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations (WP.29)

7. The secretariat introduced GRPE-72-08 and reported on relevant GRPE items discussed during the 166th and 167th sessions of the World Forum. For more details, see ECE/TRANS/WP.29/1116 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/1118. GRPE noted the exchange of information on the Volkswagen case that had taken place at the November 2015 session of WP.29.

8. The expert from OICA stated that the information in GRPE-72-08 on the transposition process of the Global Technical Regulation (GTR) on Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) into a new Regulation could be misleading. He clarified that WP.29 agreed at its November 2015 session to include a highest level of stringency in the new Regulation on WLTP, but without any ranking order between all other lower levels.
