31. The expert from EC reminded GRPE about the need to align Regulation No. 96 with the new EU Regulation (2016/1628) on Non-Road Mobile Machinery (NRMM) engines (GRPE-75-09). He presented GRPE-75-10 to introduce a first draft of the 05 series of amendments to Regulation No. 96 available as GRPE-75-11. He explained that GRPE-75-11 contained technical aspects, but not yet administrative procedures. He expressed his intention to submit an updated proposal as an official document for the GRPE January 2018 session. He expressed his intention to present a first draft of amendments to Regulations Nos. 120 and 132 at the next GRPE session to also align both Regulations with the new EU Regulation. He invited all stakeholders to provide comments and suggestions on GRPE-75-11 using the form available in GRPE-75-25. The experts from Italy and EUROMOT expressed their continued support to these activities.
32. GRPE agreed to resume discussion at the next GRPE session on the basis of forthcoming proposals.
