Working Party on Pollution and Energy | Session 72 | 12-15 Jan 2016

GRPE-2016-02: No discussion necessary.

EPPR-14-12: Secretary recalled the importance of confirming such document, especially on the controversial open point about 3-wheelers. He suggested taking EPPR-14-15 by IMMA as a basis for review, since it was an improved version of 14-12, with editorial comments highlighted in track changes.

EPPR-14-15 was reviewed in details.

  • Item 2 on 3W vehicles: Japanese (EPPR-14-10) and Indian (EPPR-14-13) comments were reviewed. As proposed by Japan and supported by India and EC, it was agreed to delete complete sub-para. (c) of GRPE-2016-02, para. 19 in Section 1.
  • Item 3 was changed as follows:
    • 24 bis was renamed 25 and all sub-sequent paragraphs were re-numbered.
    • same similar family criteria
    • IMMA editorial improvement was accepted by India, by EC, by Japan.
    • India proposal (highlighted in blue font) was accepted.
    • Item 4 – 14: proposals agreed.

    EPPR-14-16 (IMMA), containing following additional editorial corrections to ensure consistency throughout the document, was agreed upon:

    • 1 Change fuel storage and supply system into fuel storage and delivery system.
      • Justification: To make the wording consistent throughout the gtr.
    • 2 Change Fuel storage tank into Fuel tank
      • Justification: To make the wording consistent throughout the gtr; In line with equal proposals made earlier by China and adopted by other EPPR members.

    Conclusion
    EPPR-14-15 and EPPR-14-16 were adopted; will be consolidated in a new informal document amending GRPE-2016-02 and submitted to January 2016 GRPE.
    GRPE-72-06, Technical Report, was agreed upon.
    Secretary explained that compared to previous final draft document (EPPR-14-09e):

    • The ‘authorisation’ was deleted, since the GRPE Secretariat had pointed out that it was not necessary to add the authorisation in the informal document. The ‘authorisation’ will be added by the UNECE Secretariat once the GTR and Tech. Report are adopted.
    • Some adjustments on the paragraph numbering had been made.
