39. The expert from Germany presented updated test requirements for electric cables sleeves and cable conduits (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2016/24 superseding ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2016/3). The expert from OICA supported the principles of the proposal, but underlined the need for transitional provisions that give sufficient lead-time for the automotive industry. GRSG reviewed the proposal as reflected in GRSG-111-30-Rev.1. GRSG noted the preference by the experts from CLCCR and OICA to add one additional year (2021 instead of 2020 for all registrations) to the date specified in paragraph 12.13.

40. Finally, GRSG adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2016/24 as reproduced in Annex III to this report and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their March 2017 sessions, as draft 03 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 118.
