This agenda item relates to UN R144 Accident Emergency Call Systems.

59. The expert from OICA recalled that the purpose of ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2018/23 was to correct the scope of the UN Regulation. The expert from the Russian Federation proposed further editorial corrections and amendments (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2019/18) which allow contracting parties to apply the relevant requirements to assess compliance of Accident Emergency Call Devices (AECD) designed for installation on vehicles of categories other than M1 and N1. The expert from the Russian Federation introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2019/23 extending the scope of application for AECD, if fitted to other categories than M1 and N1.
