24. The expert from Poland introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2018/8 on simplifying and adapting the Regulation to technical progress, specifically for the definition of a type of container and Annex 2B. On the removal of text in the communication form marked in strikethrough, a number of experts preferred to be in line with other UN Regulations and to keep the strikethrough text. The experts from Italy and AEGPL raised study reservations. GRSG noted concerns on the proposal and suggestions on the optional use of versions and variants in the communication form as the Regulation only specifies a definition for type of container, but not for accessories. After discussion, the expert from AEGPL volunteered to prepare with other stakeholders, a new proposal for consideration at the next GRSG session.
25. The expert from Germany recalled the outcome of the task force (para. 23 above) on ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/16 and presented GRSG-114-09 proposing amendments to the Regulation. GRSG noted general support and some comments. Finally, GRSG considered a revised proposal (GRSG-114-09-Rev.1) and adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/16 as reproduced in Annex V to the session report. The secretariat was requested to submit the proposal to WP.29 and AC.1 as draft 02 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 67 for consideration at their November 2018 sessions.
26. The expert from OICA introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2018/2 on amending the provisions of the ageing test in Annex 15 of UN Regulation No. 67 and on the results of the ageing of material (e.g. rubber hoses) that is in contact with LPG. GRSG invited the task force to resume consideration of this subject and to submit in due time a proposal for consideration at the next GRSG session. ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2018/2 would be kept on the agenda as a reference document.
