This agenda item relates to UN R116 Anti-theft and Alarm Systems.
Working Party on General Safety | Session 112 | 24-28 Apr 2017

34. As GRSG ambassador on the International Whole Vehicle Type Approval (IWVTA), the expert from OICA presented the proposals on the splitting of the provisions of UN Regulation No. 116 into three separate Regulations (see para. 43 below), allowing the Contracting Parties to apply them on an optional or mandatory basis at their national/regional level. He briefly introduced (i) GRSG-112-39 containing the prescriptions for devices against unauthorized use as an amendment to UN Regulation No. 116, (ii) GRSG-112-40 as a new draft UN Regulation on vehicle alarm systems and (iii) GRSG-112-41 as a new draft UN Regulation on vehicle immobilizers. He added that the purpose of the exercise was only the splitting of the provisions without changes to the technical requirements. He sought the advice of GRSG on the need to insert transitional provisions for the amendments to UN Regulation No. 116 (as a Supplement or as a new series of amendments). The Chair invited all GRSG experts to send, in due time, their comments on the three documents to the GRSG ambassador.

35. GRSG acknowledged the work done and agreed to resume consideration of this subject at its next session in October 2017 on the basis of official documents to be submitted by the GRSG ambassador, including transitional provisions.

Working Party on General Safety | Session 113 | 10-13 Oct 2017

47. As GRSG ambassador on the International Whole Vehicle Type Approval (IWVTA), the expert from OICA presented GRSG-113-41 on the status of the splitting of the provisions of UN Regulation No. 116 into three separate Regulations. He briefly introduced

  1. ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/23 containing the prescriptions for devices against unauthorized use as an amendment to UN Regulation No. 116,
  2. ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/24 as a new draft UN Regulation on vehicle immobilizers and
  3. ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/25 and Corr.1 as a new draft UN Regulation on vehicle alarm systems.
He added that ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/23 would still need to be reviewed and should be submitted to WP.29 as a new series of amendments and, thus, supplemented with transitional provisions.

48. GRSG agreed to resume consideration of this subject at its next session in April 2018 on the basis of revised official documents to be submitted by the GRSG ambassador.
