Proposal for Supplement 9 to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 16
Document WP.29/2017/59
5 April 2017

Proposal to add new CRS fixtures and otherwise align UN R16 with changes introduced through UN R129 (enhanced child restraint systems). Two “Booster Seat” fixtures (ISO/B2 and ISO/B3) were added to UN R16 to coincide with the implementation of Phase 2 of UN R129. These fixtures were developed within ISO/TC 22/SC 36/WG 2 (Child Restraint Systems) and follow the principle already established in Regulations 16 and 129 to ensure child restraint to car compatibility. An additional “Reduced-Size Rearward Facing toddler CRS” fixture (ISO/R2x) was added to facilitate compatibility in small cars/seating positions. The ISO/B2 booster seat fixture was added in the i-Size concept. Lateral facing fixtures (ISO/L1 and ISO/L2) have been upgraded. The proposal also corrects figure 2 in Annex 1B to show the referenced zones A and B, to add the sentence “Non-rigid material of < 50 Shore A hardness may be removed in order to demonstrate that covered or padded rigid parts are not contacted by the head or the chest of the manikin during the test.” and makes editorial improvements.

17. The expert from France introduced GRSP-60-11-Rev.1 amending ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2016/21 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2016/24 as amended by GRSP-60-10. He added that both proposals introduced provisions for Phase 2 of Regulation No. 129 (see para. 13 above). He also explained that ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2016/24 also aligned the 07 series with the 06 series of amendments to the Regulation. The expert from EC introduced GRSP-60-22, improving the provisions concerning contact of the head or of the chest with any rigid part of the vehicle (para. of the Regulation). GRSP noted that the use of transitional provisions in supplements should be limited as much as possible and only in special cases as indicated by ECE/TRANS/WP.29/1044/Rev.1 (General Guidelines for UN Regulatory Procedures and Transitional Provisions in UN Regulations). Finally, GRSP adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2016/21 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2016/24, as amended by Annex IV to the session report. The secretariat was requested to submit: (i) ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2016/21 as draft Supplement 9 to the 06 series of amendments and (ii) ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2016/24 as draft Supplement 1 to the 07 series of amendments to Regulation No. 16, for consideration and vote at the June 2017 sessions of WP.29 and AC.1.
