Document GRRF/2016/20 proposes to remove certain design restrictions that impede the application of new technologies, especially related to trailer power steering systems and the use of energy from the towing vehicle, including specification of the connector through which electrical energy is supplied in the proposal. Although this proposal was approved in principle at the 80th GRRF session, it was agreed that the proposal would be reviewed at the 81st GRRF to define an open value [X] in paragraph 2.1.1. of Annex 5. It has subsequently been concluded that this change to paragraph 2.1.1. is not needed. Therefore, this proposal removes the change to the paragraph from GRRF/2016/20.
48. The expert from CLEPA recalled, on behalf of CLCCR, the proposal ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2016/20 previously adopted by GRRF with a scrutiny reservation. CLCCR reviewed the text in square brackets and proposed to delete it as proposed in GRRF-81-13. GRRF adopted the proposal as amended by Annex V to the report and requested the secretariat to submit it together with ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2013/13 to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their June 2016 sessions, as Supplement 5 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 79.
