  7. Eliminate redundant marking requirements with the requirement for “@kPa” markings effective from 1 September 2017;
  8. Clarify the inflation pressure to be used for measurements and tests and related tyre markings;

38. The expert from ETRTO presented a revised proposal ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2017/9 with provisions which were already supported at the last session. He introduced the revised transitional provisions related to new marking requirements. The experts from EC and UK proposed an alternative wording (GRRF-83-14). Both proposals received several comments. Therefore GRRF agreed to adopt the agreed provisions that would not be subject to transitional provisions and to remove the others, as reproduced in GRRF-83-23.

39. GRRF requested the secretariat to submit the adopted proposals ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2017/9 amended by Annex VI (based on GRRF-83-23 and GRRF-83-15) as well as ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2016/39 as draft Supplement 15 to Regulation No. 106 (Agricultural tyres) to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration and vote at their June 2017 sessions.
