36. The expert from ETRTO introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2017/5 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2017/6 as amended by GRRF-83-11 and GRRF-83-12, proposing to introduce new tyres size usually listed in Annex 5 in a new Resolution, aimed at simplifying the update of this annex as well as reducing the number of amendments. GRRF noted that Annex 5 was containing non-metric tyre sizes not in line with the general formulae contained in the Regulation; therefore, GRRF wondered whether the right approach would be to introduce the appropriate formulae in the Regulation instead of continuously updating Annex 5. The expert from ETRTO agreed to address this proposal and to submit, if suitable, revised proposals for consideration at the next session.
