76. The representative of Consumers International (CI) welcomed the adoption of the 02 series of amendments of UN Regulation No. 129, which can be seen as a next milestone in the development of this Regulation. He highlighted that by extending the i-Size concept to children up to 135cm, several consumer issues will be addressed and that also bigger children now will benefit from higher levels of protection. He hoped that the corresponding amendment of UN Regulation No. 16 will be implemented in the short term, allowing it to be operational simultaneously with phase 2 of Regulation No. 129. Finally, he offered the support of CI in the further development of the regulation.
