50. The representative of the Russian Federation presented the activities of the Russian Federation concerning the designation of Technical Services according to the relevant provisions of the Revision 3 of the 1958 Agreement (WP.29-173-22). He also informed WP.29 about the new “E 22” form: for the communication form, the certificate of the technical service and the official correspondence. He mentioned on the facts of identifying falsified communications on the type approval. The mechanism for confirming legitimacy with direct requests to the Administrative Bodies of the Contracting Parties was very difficult and would take a long time.
50 bis. He reported on the difficulties faced by many Contracting Parties due to the lack of a central database for the consultation of approval documentation and suggested that the bodies issuing communications on the type approval organize national electronic registries databases on their official websites with the possibility of full access and viewing of these documents by the bodies of the Contracting Parties (including authorized certification bodies and technical services): the database would be linked to DETA once DETA would be established. WP.29 agreed with the representative of the Russian Federation on the importance of having an electronic exchange of type approval documentation among Contracting Parties in practical situations described in the presentation and also mentioned the activities of WP.29 on DETA.
