15. | Regulation No. 125

45. The expert from Germany presented GRSG-109-23-Rev.1 (superseding document ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2015/8) introducing new requirements for the indirect view of the driver in case vehicles were equipped with camera-monitor systems. GRSG adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2015/8 as reproduced in Annex VII and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their March 2016 sessions, as draft Supplement 1 to the 01 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 125.

46. In this respect, GRSG intended to promote the introduction of camera-monitor systems (CMS) in vehicles of category M1 also by allowing for a temporary period an obstruction in the direct field of view of the driver by the installation of a monitor in place of a mirror. GRSG agreed to remove this temporary exemption such that the Contracting Parties shall not be obliged to accept, as from 1 September 2021, approvals based on the new paragraph of UN Regulation No. 125.

5. | Regulation No. 46 (Devices for indirect vision)

25. The expert from Germany introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2015/8 on new provisions for the indirect view within UN Regulation No. 125 (Forward field of vision of drivers) in the case vehicles were equipped with CMS. GRSG noted some comments. The expert from OICA clarified that only the devices for indirect vision covered by UN Regulation No. 46 shall benefit from such provisions (GRSG-108-25). The expert from Germany volunteered to prepare an updated document for consideration at the next GRSG session, taking into account the comments received.
