Agenda Item 18.7.
UN GTR No. 15 (Worldwide harmonized Light vehicle Test Procedures (WLTP) – Phase 2)

194. The representative of the European Union, as technical sponsor, informed AC.3 that work was progressing according to schedule. He announced that the fifth amendment to UN GTR No.15 had been submitted as a working document for the January 2019 session of GRPE. He highlighted that the work on the transposition of UN GTR No. 15 into a UN Regulation remained a challenge, for example, with the topics of durability that might be excluded from the scope of the UN Regulation on WLTP, and would remain an element of the eighth Series of Amendments to UN Regulation No. 83.

195. The representative of the Netherlands, Chair of GRPE, introduced informal documents WP.29-176-14 and WP.29-176-27 presenting the impact on resources of developing a standalone UN GTR on determination of electrified vehicle power, and a draft request for authorization to develop a new UN GTR on determination of electrified vehicle power. He highlighted that both IWGs involved in drafting the regulatory provisions on the determination of electrified vehicle power considered that no or a very limited amount of extra resources are needed to develop a standalone UN GTR on the topic. He requested AC.3 to agree on developing a standalone UN GTR on determination of electrified vehicle power.

196. The representative of Japan highlighted that their delegation had agreed to such a standalone UN GTR during the last meeting of IWG EVE in Ottawa in October 2018.

197. AC.3 authorized the drafting group working on developing the procedure to determine the electrified vehicle power to develop a standalone UN GTR.

198. Consequently, the Chair of GRPE announced that the secretariat would prepare a working document to request authorization to develop a new UN GTR for consideration by AC.3 at its March 2019 session. AC.3 also requested to confirm that working document firstly by GRPE at its January 2019 session.
