This agenda item relates to UN R144 Accident Emergency Call Systems.

At its previous session, GRSG supported the new draft UN Regulation on AECS and agreed on the need to further develop the provisions of the Regulation. Thus, GRSG may wish to consider proposals for amendments to the Regulation, if available.

GRSG is expected to consider a proposal by OICA to clarify the scope of UN Regulation No. 144 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2018/23).

Working Party on General Safety | Session 115 | 9-12 Oct 2018

56. The expert from OICA presented ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2018/23 to correct the scope of the new UN Regulation No. 144 on AECS, as discussed at the 114th session of GRSG. He also introduced GRSG-115-22 and GRSG-115-23 to correct editorial and numbering errors as well as to clarify references to some passive safety regulations. The proposals received a number of comments. Finally, GRSG agreed to set up, under the lead of OICA, a task force to further discuss and resolve the remaining open issues. GRSG agreed to have final review of the documents at its next session in April 2019 on the basis of revised proposal by the task force. GRSG agreed to keep ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2018/23 on the agenda of its next session.
