Document Title: Proposal for Supplement 12 to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 44
Document Reference Number: WP.29/2016/101
Proposal to amend the toxicity and flammability declarations via references to EN 71 (European safety standards), taking into account procedures of FMVSS 302. The amendments propose the burning rate values of FMVSS 302 (302.4 inches/102 mm per minute), to harmonize the three proposals with regard to EN standards references, and to incorporate the amendment 1 to EN 71-3 (A1:2014).
The proposal also would align requirements for deceleration test devices with acceleration ones (making explicit that it is mandatory to match the corridor for each test) and to add dummy criteria and compliance with ISO 17025 to the information required in test reports.
This proposal (WP.29/2016/101), No, was adopted by the World Forum. Thirty-four Contracting Parties out of the 42 applying UN R44 were present for the vote by AC.1. Thirty-four voted in favor with zero against and zero abstaining.
