Proposal to introduce requirements for color contrast for signage and provisions for passengers with limited mobility. At its previous session (GRSG-112), GRSG approved a proposal by Germany (GRSG/2016/20) as revised in document GRSG-112-35 with the proviso that OICA would prepare a final document including transitional provisions for consideration at GRSG-113. Based upon the new general guidelines developed for Revision 3 of the 1958 Agreement, the new requirements would transition into application from September 2020 for new types of vehicles and September 2022 for all existing types.
5. The expert from Germany recalled the purpose of ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2016/20 to improve the accommodation and accessibility for passengers with reduced mobility. He added that GRSG had adopted the document in principle at its previous session as reproduced in GRSG-112-35 subject to the insertion of transitional provisions. Thus, the expert from OICA introduced GRSG-113-15-Rev.1. The expert from Sweden underlined the need to delete the amendments to Annex 8, paragraph 3.2.4. GRSG adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2016/20 as reproduced in Annex V to the session report (based on GRSG-113-15-Rev.2) and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 as draft 08 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 107 for consideration at their March 2018 sessions.
