9. The expert from the Republic of Korea introduced a proposal of authorization to amend UN GTR (GRSP-59-16), to incorporate provisions for active deployable systems in the bonnet area. GRSP noted that the proposal would be preliminarily sent to AC.3 as an informal document to the June 2016 session of AC.3 aiming to its official adoption at the November 2016 session by the Committee. It was also agreed that the expert from the Republic of Korea would submit an official proposal of amendments to the December 2016 session of GRSP, amending the current text of the UN GTR (Phase 1) and the draft text of the Phase 2 of the UN GTR (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2014/15). GRSP noted that the proposed time schedule to finalization was tight (December 2017). The expert from the Republic of Korea proposed the establishment of a task force to develop the proposed amendments instead of an IWG. The expert from OICA recommended the participation of the experts of all the Contracting Parties to the 1958 and 1998 Agreements so that the group could develop a globally harmonized test procedure.
