Proposal to align UN R106 with international standards (ETRTO, T&RA and ISO 4351-2 table 2) with regard to Improved Flexion (IF) tyres and Very high Flexion (VF) tyres. This proposal also clarifies the application of EC Regulation 167/2013 which refers to UN R106.
34. The expert from France presented GRRF-80-09, introducing the proposal ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2015/25 as well as ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2015/29 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2015/31 (see paras 39 and 45 below). GRRF supported the concept but was of the opinion that some clarifications would be necessary e.g. concerning para. 2.1. with the definition of a type. The expert from France volunteered to prepare revised proposals.
43. The expert from ETRTO presented ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2015/31 proposing amendments related to Improved Flexion (IF) tyres and Very high Flexion (VF) tyres avoiding possible misunderstanding for the application of the EC Regulation No. 167/2013 that refers to Regulation No. 106. GRRF adopted this proposal and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their June 2016 sessions, as Supplement 13 to Regulation No. 106.
