Proposal to establish procedures for the approval of non-seamless gas tube(s), gas tube(s) made of materials other than copper, stainless steel, and steel with corrosion-resistant coating, and their couplings in Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) vehicles provided they can withstand the applicable tests according to Annex 15.
32. Referring to ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/27, the expert from AEGPL recalled the purpose of his proposal to clarify the provisions in UN Regulation No. 67 on the use of non-seamless gas tubes in LPG vehicles.
