WP.29/2018/68 | Proposal for a new UN Regulation on Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Vehicles of category L
Discussion(s):
Working Party on Passive Safety | Session 62 | 12-15 Dec 2017

43. The expert from Japan introduced the draft UN Regulation on Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Vehicles of category L (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2017/19) with a presentation (GRSP-62-01). GRSP noted that GRSP-62-02 showed the changes introduced in the official proposal (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2017/19) with reference to the original ones introduced during the May 2017 session of GRSP (GRSP-61-03). The expert from the United Kingdom suggested incorporating these provisions into UN Regulation No. 134 instead to creating a new UN Regulation. However, the expert from Japan confirmed his intention of have a separate UN Regulation addressing specific conditions related to L category of vehicles, such as: (a) frontal and lateral shocks, (b) fuel system leakage and © parking conditions. GRSP adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2017/19, as amended by Annex IX to the session report. The secretariat was requested to submit the proposal as draft new UN Regulation on Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Vehicles of category L to the June 2018 sessions of WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration and vote.
