57. The GRRF chair mentioned that document ECE/TRANS/WP29/2018/35 would still contain square brackets. WP.29 agreed to remove the square brackets and to agree on transitional provision dates (as reflected in para. 92).

92. In ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2018/35, paragraphs 2.1.4., amend to read:

12.2.2.As from 1 September 2019, Contracting Parties applying this UN Regulation shall not be obliged to accept UN type approvals to the preceding series (02) of amendments, first issued after 1 September 2019.
12.2.3.Until 1 September 2021, Contracting Parties applying this UN Regulation shall continue to accept UN type approvals to the preceding series (02) of amendments to the UN Regulation, first issued before 1 September 2019.
12.2.4.As from 1 September 2021, Contracting Parties applying this UN Regulation shall not be obliged to accept type approval issued to the preceding series of amendments to this UN Regulation.

93. WP.29 noted the concern raised by the representative of OICA on the selection of an early date of application for the transitional provisions in paragraphs 12.2.3. and 12.2.4., which could create serious development difficulties, due to the introduction of new requirements compared to the very recently adopted 02 series of amendments, while vehicles are currently under development for the latter.
