Session 170 | Geneva | 15-18 Nov 2016
Agenda Item 4.2. Guidance requested by the Working Parties on matters related to Regulations annexed to the 1958 Agreement

54. The secretariat introduced WP.29-170-05 on new transitional provisions in UN Regulations Nos. 83 and 101 as requested by WP.29 at its last session (see ECE/TRANS/WP.29/1123, para. 41). The provisions specified that Contracting Parties applying UN Regulations Nos. 83 and 101 and also applying WLTP as defined in UN GTR No. 15 (such as EU) would have no obligation to accept type approvals granted according to UN Regulations Nos. 83 and 101 as of September 2017. The secretariat recalled the urgency of this proposal and stressed that it should be an official document for the March 2017 WP.29 session, subject to the endorsement by GRPE in January 2017.

55. The representative of OICA agreed in general with the text of the proposal. He suggested a few improvements in the wording, that he would submit to the secretariat. The representative of EU agreed on the approach to the proposal and she conveyed that some changes may be forwarded to the secretariat in the following days.

56. WP.29 noted WP.29-170-05 and requested the secretariat to issue it as an official document for the next session in March 2017. The secretariat requested the representatives of OICA and EU to provide their comments by 5 December 2016 at the latest, so that they can be taken into account when preparing the official document.
