95. The representative of Japan, Chair of the IWG on IWVTA, informed WP.29 about the proposed amendments to Schedule 4 on the numbering of UN type approvals allowing the use of a four to six-digit sequential number (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2018/165). He reported on the recommendation of the group that GRVA should resume consideration of the proposals to align the provisions on approval numbering in UN Regulation No. 90. He introduced WP.29-176-22 proposing to insert in ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2017/131 a new question and answer entry clarifying how the new approval number format should be reflected in the communication form with regard to the extension number. WP.29 endorsed the proposal and requested the secretariat to circulate WP.29-176-22 as ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2017/131/Add.1.

96. The World Forum agreed to resume consideration of ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2018/165 at its next session in March 2019.
