Proposal to align UN R14 with recent changes to UN R16 on occupant restraint systems. Two “Booster Seat” fixtures (ISO/B2 and ISO/B3) were added to UN R16 to coincide with the implementation of Phase 2 of UN R129 (enhanced child restraint systems). These fixtures were developed within ISO/TC 22/SC 36/WG 2 (Child Restraint Systems) and follow the principle already established in Regulations 16 and 129 to ensure child restraint to car compatibility. An additional “Reduced-Size Rearward Facing toddler CRS” fixture (ISO/R2x) was added to facilitate compatibility in small cars/seating positions. The ISO/B2 booster seat fixture was added in the i-Size concept. Lateral facing fixtures (ISO/L1 and ISO/L2) have been upgraded.
13. The expert from France introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2016/20 on the introduction of “Booster Seat” fixtures (ISO/B2 and ISO/B3) and “Reduced-Size Rearward Facing toddler CRS” fixture (ISO/R2x) added to Regulation No. 16 which corresponds with the implementation of Phase 2 of Regulation No. 129. GRSP adopted the proposal, not amended. The secretariat was requested to submit ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2016/20 for consideration and vote at the June 2017 sessions of WP.29 and the Administrative Committee of the 1958 Agreement (AC.1) as draft Supplement 8 to the 07 series of amendments to Regulation No. 14.
