30. The Chair of GRRF recalled the authorization to develop an amendment to GTR No. 16 (see ECE/TRANS/WP29/AC.3/42) and the sponsorship of the Russian Federation for this activity. The expert from the Russian Federation reported on the work done by the group of interested experts dealing with this amendment, introducing the draft amendment 1 to GTR No.16 in ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2016/2 as well as the report contained in ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2016/3. He explained that GRRF-81-02 contained additional information to show the amendments to the existing text of the GTR as well as the origin of the amended text. GRRF adopted both official documents above (and removed the square brackets in paras. 14 and 20 of ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2016/3). GRRF requested the secretariat to submit them to WP.29 and AC.3 for consideration and vote at their June 2016 sessions.
