Proposal to clarify the definitions of LPG container accessories to facilitate coordination between the separate, independent approvals required for the LPG container and for its accessories. The proposal aims to ensure proper coordination between container approvals (which involve testing with accessories attached) and accessory approvals (which may be subsequent to the original container approval and therefore, relevant to its validity).

22. The expert from Poland gave a presentation (GRSG-112-37) justifying his proposal ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/10 to clarify the provisions for type approved accessories fitted to LPG containers. The proposal received some support. The expert from AEGPL presented GRSG-112-20 proposing, as an alternative, the additional marking of the accessories with the number of type approval extension. Following a controversial discussion, the expert from Poland proposed to set up either a task force or a new informal working group on gaseous fuelled vehicles to work on the best solution. His proposal to establish an IWG did not receive full support. Finally, GRSG agreed to resume consideration of this subject at its next session in October 2017 on the basis of a new proposal jointly prepared by Poland and AEGPL. Thus, GRSG invited all interested experts to send them, in due time, their written comments.
