Revised version of the proposal to remove tables specifying general values for replacement discs and drums that are identical to the original (, taking into account comments received during the February 2016 GRRF session. The tables are considered superfluous since replacement parts identical to the original parts must by definition have values identical to the corresponding original parts. This proposal also would change the maximum permitted thickness variation of discs for medium and heavy vehicles from 0.030 mm to 0.040 mm (the common OEM specification). This has been changed from the previous proposal of 0.050 mm. This revised proposal clarifies that the proposal would revise the specifications for vehicles of categories M3, N3, O3 and O4 but retain the maximum permitted specification of 0.030mm for vehicles of categories M2 and N2.

25. The expert from CLEPA presented ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2016/22 based on GRRF-80-12 proposing amendments to provisions defined for equivalent brake discs and drums and a relaxation of the requirement on the thickness variation for interchangeable replacement discs or drums. The expert presented a revised proposal GRRF-81-04 limiting the thickness variation requirement modification to vehicles of category O2, O3, N3 and M3. The expert from Italy expressed his concern with the proposed requirement relaxation. After discussion, GRRF agreed on the revised document GRRF-81-04-Rev.1. GRRF adopted the proposal amended by Annex IV to the report and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their June 2016 sessions, as Supplement 3 to the 02 series of amendments to Regulation No. 90.
