Proposal to delete the volume and shape limits of the fume cupboard described in Annex 8 (Test to determine the vertical burning rate of materials) and replace these with the performance specification that the fume cupboard dimensions shall not affect the test results. The proposal also sets a minimum sample size of 375 × 170 mm under paragraph 3.1. of Annex 8.
42. Recalling the discussion on this subject at the previous GRSG session, the expert from Germany introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2016/3 proposing updated test requirements for electric cables sleeves and cable conduits. The expert from Finland suggested amending also the test provisions of Annex 8 on the test apparatus and the sample dimensions (GRSG-110-02).
43. Following the discussion, GRSG could not give full consent to the proposals and agreed to have a final review of the proposals at the next session of GRSG. Thus, the secretariat was requested to keep both documents on the agenda unless a revised proposal would be submitted.
