13. | Exchange of information on emission requirements

50. The expert from Japan presented GRPE-76-18 on the activities of his Country on Real Driving Emission (“Japan RDE”). The expert from OICA presented GRPE-76-19 with a non-exhaustive list of countries (e.g. Brazil, China, India, Japan, Republic of Korea) working on non-harmonized requirements on Real Driving Emissions. The Secretary of GRPE mentioned the difficulties faced by GRPE to transpose UN GTR No. 15 due to regional options and variants. He called for early harmonization of technical provisions on Real Driving Emissions. GRPE discussed the proposal of the expert from OICA to have a workshop would be organized in order to discuss Global RDE. The secretariat agreed to collaborate in the hosting of such workshop. The Chair of GRPE welcomed the presentation and invited Contracting Parties to continue this exercise of exchange of information on emissions requirements in the next sessions. He urged the delegations to not only focus on their domestic needs but also leave flexibility for negotiation of globally harmonized requirements. GRPE agreed to add a corresponding agenda item on the agenda of GRPE.
