34. As GRSG ambassador on the International Whole Vehicle Type Approval (IWVTA), the expert from OICA presented the proposals on the splitting of the provisions of UN Regulation No. 116 into three separate Regulations (see para. 43 below), allowing the Contracting Parties to apply them on an optional or mandatory basis at their national/regional level. He briefly introduced (i) GRSG-112-39 containing the prescriptions for devices against unauthorized use as an amendment to UN Regulation No. 116, (ii) GRSG-112-40 as a new draft UN Regulation on vehicle alarm systems and (iii) GRSG-112-41 as a new draft UN Regulation on vehicle immobilizers. He added that the purpose of the exercise was only the splitting of the provisions without changes to the technical requirements. He sought the advice of GRSG on the need to insert transitional provisions for the amendments to UN Regulation No. 116 (as a Supplement or as a new series of amendments). The Chair invited all GRSG experts to send, in due time, their comments on the three documents to the GRSG ambassador.

35. GRSG acknowledged the work done and agreed to resume consideration of this subject at its next session in October 2017 on the basis of official documents to be submitted by the GRSG ambassador, including transitional provisions.
