Proposal to enable approval testing under UN R137 as an alternative to UN R12 in order to avoid redundant testing requirements. The proposal adds references to the steering gear provisions of UN R137 (full width frontal impact) as a compliance alternative in parallel to the current references similarly allowing compliance via provisions in UN R94 (offset deformable barrier frontal impact). Please note that this proposal is based upon document GRSP-60-06/Rev.1. The reference to GRSP-60-07 is incorrect.
12. The expert from OICA introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2017/6, to allow alternative requirements of Regulation No. 137 to avoid redundancy of testing. GRSP adopted the proposal not amended. The secretariat was requested to submit ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2017/6 as draft Supplement 5 to the 04 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 12, for consideration and vote at the November 2017 sessions of WP.29 and of the Administrative Committee of the 1958 Agreement (AC.1).
