28. The expert from ISO presented GRSG-112-38 justifying the need to harmonize the requirements on Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and/or Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) vehicles in UN Regulation No. 110 with those in the latest version of ISO 11439:2013 (as proposed in ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2016/22). He recalled the comments received by GRSG experts during the last sessions (mainly on GRSG-111-02-Rev.1 and GRSG-112-05) and announced his intention to prepare, in due time, a revised official document for consideration at the next GRSG sessions, including transitional provisions.

32. The expert from ISO presented an overview of the activities of his organization on specific aspects for gaseous fuels (GRSG-111-25). He introduced GRSG-111-02 with the rationale of all amendments proposed to UN Regulation No. 110 in document ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2016/22 superseding ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2016/6. GRSG welcomed GRSG-111-03 listing the copies of all ISO standards referenced to in UN Regulation No. 110 on CNG/LNG vehicles. A number of experts raised a concern on the dynamic referencing of international standards and expressed their preference for a static referencing, mainly for legal purposes. GRSG reviewed the document and agreed on the need to adopt the proposal as a new 03 series of amendments and to insert transitional provisions triggered of the 1 September. The expert from France asked for more detailed information on each of the proposed amendments, especially on the level of stringency and their impact on technical services. The expert from CLEPA underlined the need to also insert transitional provisions for existing type approvals and sufficient lead time for suppliers to upgrade them.

33. Following study reservations by the experts from Germany, France and CLEPA, GRSG decided to resume consideration of the proposal at its next session in April 2017 based on a revised document to be submitted by ISO. The Chair invited all experts to send their written comments on GRSG-111-02-Rev.1 in due time to the experts from ISO or NGV Global.
