18. GRSP noted the decision of WP.29 at its November 2010 session to refer ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2010/120 back to GRSP for further consideration (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/1087, para. 3c) of the mandatory installation of a universal ISOFIX anchorage system in the front seat instead of the rear seat, under certain conditions. Accordingly, GRSP considered and adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2010/120 amended by GRSP-48-39 (superseding GRSP-48-32 and GRSP-48-17) as reproduced in Annex II to this report. The secretariat was requested to submit the proposal to WP.29 and AC.1, for consideration and vote at their June 2011 sessions as draft Supplement 2 to the 07 Series of amendments to Regulation No. 14.

19. Following the presentation made by the expert from Germany on the marking of top tether (GRSP-48-16), GRSP adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2010/30 amended by GRSP-48-15, as reproduced in Annex II to this report. The secretariat was requested to submit the proposal to WP.29 and AC.1, for consideration and vote at their June 2011 sessions as part of (see. para. 18) draft Supplement 2 to the 07 Series of amendments to Regulation No. 14.

20. GRSP also considered and adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2010/32 (amended by GRSP-48-25) as reproduced in Annex II to this report. The secretariat was requested to submit the proposal to WP.29 and AC.1, for consideration and vote at their June 2011 sessions as draft Corrigendum 1 to Revision 4 to Regulation No. 14.

21. Referring to the possibility of installing side-facing seats, under certain conditions, the expert from Germany introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2010/33, GRSP-48-02 and GRSP-48-35. The expert from EC stated that research studies clearly demonstrated that side-facing seats could not provide best protection to occupants. Accordingly, he recommended against installing child restraint systems on such type of seats.

22. GRSP agreed to resume discussion at its May 2011 session together with corresponding amendments to Regulations Nos. 16, 17 and 80, based on a revised proposal (encompassing ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2010/32, GRSP-48-02 and GRSP-48-35) to be prepared by the experts from Belgium and Germany.
