GRSP-60-17 | Proposal from the United States of America on Phase 2 amendments to UN GTR No. 9 (USA)
Proposal from the United States of America on Phase 2 amendments to UN GTR No. 9
Phase 2 proposes to amend the UN Global Technical Regulation No. 9 on pedestrian safety by introducing the flexible pedestrian legform impactor (FlexPLI) as a single harmonized test tool in order to enhance the level of protection for pedestrian lower legs. NHTSA has expressed concern that the injury assessment reference values (IARVs) for this GTR may not meet the needs for injury mitigation in the U.S. In order to enable the proposed Phase 2 amendment to move forward with US support, the US proposes additions to the GTR preamble to make clear its position and intentions regarding assessment of the IARV and to allow the brackets to be removed from the IARV in the draft amendment.
