Document Title: Proposal for Supplement 6 to the 07 series of amendments to Regulation No. 83
Document Reference Number: WP.29/2017/65
Proposal to allow, at the manufacturer’s request, extension of a type approval to special purpose vehicles of categories M1, M2, N1 and N2 regardless of their reference mass provided the manufacturer demonstrates that the vehicle in question is a special purpose vehicle. This aligns UN R83 with EU Directive 2007/46/EC where approvals of vehicles with a reference mass less than 2,610 kg can be extended to special purpose vehicles exceeding 2,840 kg (e.g., armored vehicles).
This proposal (WP.29/2017/65) was adopted by the World Forum. Thirty-five Contracting Parties out of the 44 applying UN R83 were present for the vote by AC.1. Thirty-five voted in favor with zero against and zero abstaining.
