38. The Chair of GRRF reported that GRRF had drafted a proposal for a Supplement 6 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 79 (Steering equipment) containing provisions for two categories (A and B1) of Automatically Commanded Steering Functions (ACSF) with safety requirements and the corresponding testing procedures for lane keeping systems, corrective steering functions and remote controlled parking. He informed WP.29 about the need to extend the mandate of the IWG by one year. WP.29 endorsed that request and agreed to extend the mandate until September 2017.

39. The Chair of GRRF also reported on an ad hoc informal meeting of experts from the Working Parties on Road Traffic Safety (WP.1), the IWG on ITS/AD and GRRF in which they exchanged views on automated driving. WP.29 considered such meetings valuable and recommended continuity of such meetings.
