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.

7. | Regulation No. 67

22. The expert from Poland gave a presentation (GRSG-112-37) justifying his proposal ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/10 to clarify the provisions for type approved accessories fitted to LPG containers. The proposal received some support. The expert from AEGPL presented GRSG-112-20 proposing, as an alternative, the additional marking of the accessories with the number of type approval extension. Following a controversial discussion, the expert from Poland proposed to set up either a task force or a new informal working group on gaseous fuelled vehicles to work on the best solution. His proposal to establish an IWG did not receive full support. Finally, GRSG agreed to resume consideration of this subject at its next session in October 2017 on the basis of a new proposal jointly prepared by Poland and AEGPL. Thus, GRSG invited all interested experts to send them, in due time, their written comments.
