Proposal to amend UN R129 in line with the proposal to amend UN R14 (document GRSP/2017/8) in order to separate child restraint provisions (including ISOFIX anchorage provisions) into a new UN Regulation. The ISOFIX amendment to UN R14 has been introduced to facilitate the establishment of the International Whole Vehicle Type Approval (IWVTA) regulation by limiting the scope of UN R14 to adult safety belts.
The proposal also incorporates amendments developed by the CRS informal working group to enable the type approval of integral and non-integral Enhanced Child Restraint Systems equipped with an impact shield.
Lastly, the proposal would introduce a provision prohibiting the use of the Unique Identifier allowed under the Revision 3 of the 1958 Agreement as an alternative to the current approval mark. In the case of child restraint systems, the approval mark contains important information for users.
