Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 67
Download in .pdf format Download in .docx format

Proposal to allow the use of Class 0 hoses with couplings using sealing technologies other than those with a 45° cone. Currently, non-seamless double and single wall tubes are used in brake and fuel tubing applications, allowing for the use of a variety of end forms and coupling techniques. Provided the tubing can withstand the applicable tests according to Annex 15, Table 1, such configurations should be permitted under UN R67 in order to remove an unwarranted design restriction.

24. The expert from the Netherlands presented GRSG-111-19 superseding ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2016/7 and amending the provisions of UN Regulation No. 67 on LPG vehicles to allow Class 0/I hoses with couplings using gas tubes other than seamless material. The document received a number of comments. GRSG noted study reservations by the experts from Germany and AEGPL. GRSG reviewed the proposal as reflected in GRSG-111-19-Rev.1 and agreed to resume consideration of this subject at its next session in April 2017. The secretariat was requested to circulate GRSG-111-19-Rev.1 with an official symbol.

26. Recalling the purpose of ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2016/7, the expert from the Netherlands presented GRSG-110-25 amending the provisions of UN Regulation No. 67 on LPG vehicles to allow Class 0/I hoses with couplings using gas tubes other than seamless material. GRSG noted a number of comments on the need for detailed testing specifications for type approval purposes and for clarification of the responsibilities. The Chair of GRSG invited all experts to send their written comments to the expert from the Netherlands. GRSG agreed to resume consideration of this subject at its next session in October 2016 on the basis of an updated official document by the Netherlands taking into account the comments received.
