Proposal to clarify the test requirements in alignment with the French text of the regulation by amending paragraph 5.10 to read “Tanks shall be installed in such a way as to be protected from the consequences of a collision to the front or the rear of the vehicle; there shall be no protruding parts, sharp edges, etc.
near nearby all around the tank tanks.” The proposal aims to clarify the inspection of potentially protruding parts around the tanks in order to ensure their integrity in the event of a collision.
10. The expert from France introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2018/4 to clarify and to align, in the three languages, the provisions of UN Regulation No. 34 on the protection of the tank in a collision. GRSG noted a number of comments.
11. Following discussions, GRSG adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2018/4 as reproduced in Annex III to this report. The secretariat was requested to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 as draft Supplement 6 to the 02 series of amendments and as draft Supplement 2 to the 03 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 34 for consideration at their November 2018 sessions.
