39. The expert from OICA, in his capacity of GRSG Ambassador to the IWG on the International Whole Vehicle Type Approval (IWVTA), informed GRSG about the splitting of UN Regulation No. 116. He recalled the purposes of (a) ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/23 which contains the prescriptions for devices against un-authorized use as an amendment to UN Regulation No. 116, (b) ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/24 as a new draft UN Regulation on vehicle immobilizers and (c) ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/25 as a new draft UN Regulation on vehicle alarm systems. After detailed consideration of GRSG-114-28 (superseding ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/24), GRSG agreed to adopt the three separate UN Regulations at the same time. The secretariat was requested to circulate GRSG-114-28 as a revision to the official document for consideration at the October 2018 session of GRSG.

46. The expert from OICA informed GRSG about his decision to resign from his function as GRSG Ambassador to IWG on the International Whole Vehicle Type Approval (IWVTA), due to increased workload. He wondered if the function was still needed as UN Regulation No. 0 on IWVTA had entered recently into force. He reported on the status of documentation on the splitting of UN Regulation No. 116 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/23, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/24/Rev.1 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/25) and invited all experts to send him their comments. He offered to prepare a set of final documents after the discussions at a further meeting in conjunction with the next GRSG session with the aim to adopt those documents at the 117th GRSG session. GRSG endorsed the proposed road map and agreed to keep the documents on the agenda as reference documents. The Chair thanked Mr. O. Fontaine for his commitment as GRSG Ambassador on IWVTA and his contributions in this function.

47. As GRSG ambassador on the International Whole Vehicle Type Approval (IWVTA), the expert from OICA presented GRSG-113-41 on the status of the splitting of the provisions of UN Regulation No. 116 into three separate Regulations. He briefly introduced

  1. ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/23 containing the prescriptions for devices against unauthorized use as an amendment to UN Regulation No. 116,
  2. ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/24 as a new draft UN Regulation on vehicle immobilizers and
  3. ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/25 and Corr.1 as a new draft UN Regulation on vehicle alarm systems.
He added that ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/23 would still need to be reviewed and should be submitted to WP.29 as a new series of amendments and, thus, supplemented with transitional provisions.

48. GRSG agreed to resume consideration of this subject at its next session in April 2018 on the basis of revised official documents to be submitted by the GRSG ambassador.
