OICA proposal of modifications to the Turkey proposal to insert new provisions on the location on the vehicle of the filling unit, marking of the LPG container date of production, and a limitation on the maximum service life of LPG containers to 15 years. Given that the risks concern containers located outside and under the vehicle, OICA proposes focusing discussion of the 15-year service life on such containers. In addition, the proposal would introduce new requirements and therefore would require transitional provisions.
