Working Party on General Safety | Session 111 | 11-14 Oct 2016
Agenda Item 8.
Regulation No. 73 (Lateral protection devices)

27. The expert from CLCCR introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2016/18 amending the scope of the Regulation to ensure that as many vehicles as possible were fitted with a lateral protection device and preferred to insert derogations for some niche products (GRSG-110-20-Rev.1). The expert from the United Kingdom raised concerns and preferred to keep the amendments as proposed in ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2016/2 which allows Contracting Parties to object or accept such lateral protection devices. GRSG noted a number of comments on and general support for ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2016/18.

28. Finally, GRSG adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2016/18 and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their March 2017 sessions, as draft Supplement 1 to the 01 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 73.
