181. AC.3 considered ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2018/164 (superseding ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2018/34) aimed at providing an updated overview of the priorities of the Programme of Work (PoW) of the development of UN GTRs or amendments to the existing ones. AC.3 endorsed ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2018/164, (corrected at page 4 by adding square brackets around the expected date for finalizing the RDE GTR to reflect the anticipated need for additional time for completion and corrected at page 6 concerning UN GTR No. 12 by replacing GRE with GRSG) and requested the secretariat to keep it as a reference for further update at its next sessions.
