Working Party on Passive Safety (GRSP) (Sixty-fifth session, 13-17 May 2019)

55. The representative of the United States of America reported on the sixty-fifth session of GRSP (for details see the session report ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/65).

56. The World Forum noted that Mr. N. Nguyen (United States of America) had retired from government service and would be replaced by a new Chair, to be nominated by the United States of America. The World Forum commended Mr. Nguyen for his many years of leadership and for his achievements in GRSP and WP.29.

57. GRSP sought consent from WP.29 to establish a new IWG on “Securing of Children in buses and coaches” in order to develop a UN Regulation under the 1958 Agreement. GRSP would also consult with GRSG on this topic at its upcoming session in October 2019. The World Forum consented to establishing an IWG and requested the ToR at its next sessions.

58. GRSP sought guidance from WP.29 on the possibility that WP.29 and the Sub-Committee 1 (SC.1) or other ECE bodies could cooperatively explore the subject of safer road infrastructure for motorcyclists. The World Forum consented to that possibility for GRSP experts and interested ECE bodies.
