62. The representative of OICA raised concerns on the amendments to Regulations Nos. 97 and 116 on vehicle alarm systems (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2015/87 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2015/91). He added that some further amendments to Regulation No. 48 were needed to fully clarify the purpose of these proposals. The representative of the EU saw no need to delay the vote and was in favour of going ahead with the adoption of both documents. The representative of Germany volunteered to prepare, together with the experts from OICA, a proposal for such amendments to Regulation No. 48 for consideration at the next GRE session.
