Proposal to correct the definition of “manual valve”, including deletion of the phrase “rigidly fixed to the cylinder or tank”. The definition of the manual valve as part of the accessories fitted to the container or tank (para. 4.16.) is different from the definition specified in paragraph 4.22. The proposed editorial change aims at clarifying the text of these definitions.
The proposal also introduces provisions for cargo-compartment refrigeration systems connected to the compressed natural gas (CNG) and/or liquefied natural gas (LNG) system(s).
29. The expert from the Netherlands introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/4 aimed at correcting an error in the definitions related to the manual valve. GRSG noted a number of comments and adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/4 as reproduced below. The secretariat was requested to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 as draft Supplement 7 to the 01 series of amendment and as draft Supplement 1 to the 02 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 110, for consideration at their November 2017 sessions.
Paragraph 4.16.1., amend to read:
“4.16.1. “Manual valve”: as defined in paragraph 4.22. that is rigidly fixed to the cylinder or tank."
Paragraph 4.16.3., amend to read:
“4.16.3. “Excess flow valve”: as defined in paragraph 4.21."
Paragraph 4.22., amend to read:
“4.22. “Manual valve” means a valve which is operated manually."
30. The expert from France introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/9 incorporating provisions concerning refrigeration systems for cooling the cargo compartment which were connected to the CNG and/or LNG system. GRSG noted general support. GRSG adopted document ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/9 as amended below. The secretariat was requested to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 as part (see para. 29 above) of draft Supplement 1 to the 02 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 110 for consideration at their November 2017 sessions.
In paragraph 22.214.171.124., replace “GNC/GNL” to read “CNG/LNG” (twice).
