Proposal presented as an alternative to the previous proposal from Poland (GRSG/2017/10) to require manufacturers to mark the approval extension number on any accessories relevant to the bonfire test (multivalve or, when approved separately, pressure relief valve (discharge valve) and pressure relief device) so that the fitting of any accessory not on the list of approved configurations (Table 3 in the appendix of Annex 2B) will be prevented/forbidden. This solution would imply a new requirement in Annex 2A for the marking of the accessories fitted to the containers.
33. Recalling the discussion on ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/10 at the previous GRSG session, the expert from AEGPL presented ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/30 to further clarify the provisions for type approved accessories fitted to LPG containers and to insert an additional indication mark. The expert from Poland raised a study reservation and introduced the obligation to mark the products with the designation of the version, variant and the extension number of the type-approval certificate (GRSG-113-09). Both proposals received a number of comments.
34. Finally, GRSG considered a revised proposal (GRSG-113-36) and adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/30 as amended below.
Part I, paragraph 4.2., amend to read:
|“4.2.||All equipment shall have …… drawings referred to in paragraph 3.2.2. above. In the case of limited space for the approval mark(s), other means of identification that link it to the approval mark shall be provided.”|
35. The secretariat was requested to submit the proposal to WP.29 and AC.1 as part (see paras. 31 and 32 above) of draft Supplement 15 to the 01 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 67 for consideration at their March 2018 sessions.
