This agenda item relates to GTR No. 9 Pedestrian Safety (GTR).

190. Referring to the proposal of Amendment 3 revising the testing procedure of the head impact test, the representative of the United States of America informed AC.3 that his Administration previously had planned to issue a Notice of Proposed Rule-Making (NPRM) to get public comments to inform the IWG’s work. However, he added that given higher priorities and that his country does not have a regulation on this subject, it is not likely that national regulatory actions would be concluded by his Administration, but he indicated that his country would continue to follow the work in GRSP.

191. The representative of the Republic of Korea reported on the progress that the IWG on Deployable Pedestrian Protection Systems (IWG-DPPS) had achieved to design provisions covering active deployable systems in the bonnet area (Amendment 4 to the UN GTR) and introduced the Terms of Reference (ToR) of IWG (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2018/162). The representative of the United States of America clarified that the IWG had developed a table of issues and that his country had provided inputs and managed to solve some of them at the last IWG meeting (5-7 September 2018).

192. Finally, AC.3 adopted the ToR of IWG-DPPS (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2018/162).
