The secretariat introduced WP.29-170-27 on ITU activities that affect the framework of the 1958 Agreement and other frameworks such as the IEC System for Conformity Assessment Schemes for Electrotechnical Equipment and Components, which is a multilateral certification system with elements of mutual recognition. He drew the attention of WP.29 delegates to the potential legal uncertainty for authorities or manufacturers in case technical requirements would be incorporated in two certification processes in accordance with two multilateral frameworks, each with mutual recognition provisions.
