WP.29/2017/132 | Proposal for a new UN Regulation on Accident Emergency Call Systems
Document Title: Proposal for a new UN Regulation on Accident Emergency Call Systems
This proposal (WP.29/2017/132) was adopted by the World Forum. Thirty-eight Contracting Parties to the 1958 Agreement were present for the vote by AC.1. Thirty-seven voted in favor with one against and zero abstaining.
53. The expert from the Russian Federation, chairing the IWG on AECS, recalled the detailed consideration of GRSG at its previous session of the new UN Regulation on AECS on the basis of ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/12. He informed GRSG that the IWG had again reviewed the proposal to remove some editorial inconsistencies. He added that the latter ones have been taken into account in the official document ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2017/132 which was submitted to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their November 2017 sessions. He concluded that further work needed to be done. As Secretary of the IWG on AECS, the expert from OICA introduced the revised justification document (GRSG-111-06-Rev.1) on draft UN Regulation on AECS. He reiterated his concern that Contracting Parties to the 1958 Agreement which intend to apply the Regulation should ensure the necessary infrastructure for the application of the new UN Regulation, once it enters into force.
54. GRSG reconfirmed its adoption of ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2017/132 and agreed to resume consideration on this subject at its forthcoming session, especially on the need for further developments to the new UN Regulation.
