Japan comments on the changes agreed by the informal group of experts which reviewed the content of Annex 6 and proposed (via document GRRF-85-1/Rev.1) to clarify the purpose of Annex 6 and ensure its suitability when used in the assessment of steering systems featuring advances in automation (i.e., ACSF). The proposal

  1. corrects an editorial error by inserting a missing clause in paragraph 1, and
  2. deletes the phrase “at least 10%” from paragraph 4.1.1. which changes the current meaning of text with regard to assessment of “the System”
    • Japanese technical services already verify each declared function by the manufacturer under the paragraph,
    • The wording “at least 10%” may result in a decrease in the number of tests where Japan believes number of tests should be decided by the Technical service considering which tests should apply.
