The expert from EC presented a set of amendments to UN Regulation No. 141 (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)) with the aim to extend its scope, for the purpose of implementing the TPMS requirements in Regulation 2019/2144 of the European Union (GRBP-71-15). Several GRBP experts expressed concerns about the tight schedule in the European Union Regulation and the volume of the proposed amendments.
