34. The Chair of GRB further informed WP.29 that GRB had decided to establish a new IWG on Additional Sound Emission Provisions (ASEP); the Terms of Reference are reproduced in Annex III to the GRB report. WP.29 gave its consent for establishing this IWG.

35. The Chair of GRB also pointed out that, due to the late publication in the United States of America of the National Rule on Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS), IWG on Quiet Road Transport Vehicles (QRTV) GTR would need more time to fulfil its mandated tasks. WP.29 agreed to extend the mandate of IWG QRTV GTR until December 2018.

36. WP.29 noted that GRB had re-elected Mr. S. Ficheux (France) as Chair and Mr. A. Bocharov (Russian Federation) as Vice-Chair for the year 2017.
