Proposal to align UN R121 with the 07 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 16:
This proposal also aligns UN R121 with ISO 2575 per ISO Resolution 664 allowing for use of the diesel engine glow plug symbol with non-diesel technologies that (also) assist engine starting at low temperatures. The current text of the Regulation focuses on diesel engine glow plugs that assist in starting the engine at low temperatures.
