Mr. Lescail remarkerd that in the consolidated document the angle denomination on page 10 shall be in Greek characters. The formula on page 8 shall be stricken through.

There was a general discussion on consolidated documentation with respect to the different regulations and in our case specifically on regulation 55. It was noted that since our last meeting the secretary of GRRF had published a second revision of regulation 55. This was well received by the working group. It was challenged why that could not be done in general instead of issuing amendments.

There was also a short information that the secretary of our working group had made a further consolidation in the working documents R55-12-01 and R55-12-02 just in order to keep track of a correct numbering in forthcoming proposals.

17. The Chair of the IWG on Regulation No. 55 introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2015/34, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2015/35, and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2015/36 presenting the outcome of the work done by the group and taking into account the comments received at the previous sessions of GRRF.

18. GRRF adopted the proposals, as reproduced Annex III (based on GRRF-80-41) to the session report and requested the secretariat to submit them to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their March 2016 sessions, as Supplement 5 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 55.
