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.

58. Agenda item 4.7.1, Regulation No. 55, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2016/5, insert the following amendment to read:
Annex 7, paragraph 1.2.2., for “…a = 25° and b = 60°” read “…α = 25° and β = 60°”.
