This proposal (WP.29/2017/129) was adopted by the World Forum. Thirty-three Contracting Parties out of the 44 applying UN R49 were present for the vote by AC.1. Thirty-three voted in favor with zero against and zero abstaining.
Proposal to introduce provisions to align UN R49 with recently introduced stage D EU legislation in order enable manufacturers to continue to utilize the provisions in paragraph 4 of Annex 9A to approve light commercial vehicles with a light duty OBD architecture under this regulation. This proposal incorporates all of the provisions of the latest amendment to EU legislation. As stage D is unrelated to OBD, the proposal is to make stage C and all subsequent stages equivalent to EOBD 6-2.
