Draft GTR on Worldwide harmonized Light vehicle Test Procedures (WLTP)

114. The Chair of GRPE (Germany) reported on behalf of the other two co-sponsors (Japan and European Union) on the development of the WLTP UN GTR. He added that work was progressing successfully, and that GRPE had considered the draft GTR on the basis of an informal document (GRPE-66-02) at its June 2013 session. He said that the subgroup for the development of the test procedure (DTP) was still working on some of the open issues and that the drafting group would further work on improvements of the text of the UN GTR until the deadline for submission of the working document by the end of August. He added that the technical report would be available, as an informal document, at the November session 2013 of GRPE. He mentioned that this approach had been agreed by the Contracting Parties in GRPE. AC.3 noted, that an adoption of the first version of the WLTP UN GTR was expected at the extraordinary GRPE session in November 2013 and finally at the session of AC.3 in March 2014.
