Document WP.29-171-04
Proposal to amend the proposal for Supplement 7 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 113
Status: Superseded
Submitted by EU

Proposal to remove the amendment to the heat test cycle related to the movement of the passing beam proposed in the draft supplement (document WP.29/2017/39). The EU views the proposed test cycle changes (based on document GRE/2016/32) as a substantial revision of the procedure amounting to a new requirement. Therefore, the EU will only agree to the proposed Supplement 7 to the 01 series if the requirement concerning the heat test cycle is removed from the proposal WP.29/2017/39.

77th GRE session (4-7 Apr 2017)

35. GRE took note that, at the March 2017 session of WP.29, the representative of EU expressed concerns (WP.29-171-04) about the legal form of amendments relating to the heat test cycle requirement in Regulation No. 113, as contained in ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2017/39. WP.29 had decided to refer this document back to GRE for further consideration (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/1129, para. 73). GRE agreed that the underlying proposals should be introduced as a new series of amendments and adopted a revised text, as contained in Annex V. The secretariat was requested to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration and vote at their June 2017 sessions.

171st WP.29 session (14-17 Mar 2017)
WP.29/2017/39

73. The representative of EU expressed concerns (WP.29-171-04) about the legal form of amendments relating to the heat test cycle requirement in Regulation No. 113, as contained in ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2017/39 (agenda item 4.9.21). The World Forum decided to refer this document back to GRE for further consideration.

76th GRE session (25-28 Oct 2016)
GRE/2016/32

15. The expert from GTB proposed to clarify the heat test cycle relating to the movement of the passing beam cut-off in Regulations Nos. 19, 98, 112, 113 and 123 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/32). The experts from EC and UK expressed concerns that the proposals would modify the performance requirements and might have safety implications. Therefore, these experts felt that the proposals should be formulated in the form of new series of amendments to the above Regulations, rather than supplements. The experts from Finland, France, Germany, Japan, GTB and OICA advocated for supplements and pointed out that the proposed amendments would neither raise the required level of stringency nor have safety implications. Finally, GRE adopted the proposals and requested the secretariat to include them into the package for submission to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration and vote at their March 2017 sessions (see para. 10 above).
