Agenda Item 3.5.3.
Working Party on Passive Safety (GRSP) (Fifty-third session, 13–17 May 2013)

42. On behalf of Ms. Versailles, Chair of GRSP, the representative of the United States of America informed WP.29 about the results made by GRSP during its fifty-third session (for details see the session report ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/53).

43. [The representative of the GRSP chair] informed WP.29 that GRSP expected to recommend that Amendment 2 (Phase 2) of the UN GTR on pedestrian safety, aimed at including the Flex-PLI and the definition of the head form impact point be included into the UN GTR No. 9 test. These provisions would also be included into UN Regulation No. 127. He also announced the submission of an Amendment 1 (Phase 1) to the UN GTR on pedestrian safety on an updated definition of the head form impact point.

44. [The GRSP chair’s representative] informed the World Forum that GRSP had recommended a proposal and a final report to AC.3 for consideration and vote at its November 2013 session on the development of a UN GTR on pole side impact (PSI). However, he added that a parallel proposal for Addendum 2 to Mutual Resolution No. 1 (M.R.1) introducing drawings and specifications of the World Side Impact Dummy (WorldSID) 50th percentile male would be submitted at a later stage to GRSP and to WP.29 for adoption. Finally, he added that GRSP had agreed, as an interim solution, to reference these specifications to the pertinent website of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Accordingly, he sought the guidance of WP.29 and AC.3 on this subject and to find a solution for the location of the dummy specifications until the addendum to M.R.1. could be approved (see para. 116 below).
