Document GRB-67-09
24 January 2018

Proposal to

  1. clarify that the speed range of 0-20 km/h applies to UN R138, but does not preclude the AVAS from operating a speeds above 20 km/h (para. 6.2);
  2. delete subparagraphs under para. 6.2.6. that should have been removed when the 01 series of amendments prohibited driver-operated pause functions;
  3. split the specifications for para. “2.2. Meteorological conditions” under Annex 3 to address indoor and outdoor testing separately for clarity and to avoid unnecessary requirements in each case.

15. The expert from OICA presented a revised proposal with the aim to clarify the scope and some provisions of UN Regulation No. 138 (GRB-69-06). GRB adopted the proposal, as laid down in Annex II and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration and vote at their June 2019 sessions as a draft Supplement 1 to the 01 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 138.

7. | Regulation No. 138 (Quiet road transport vehicles)

18. The expert from OICA proposed to clarify the application of the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 138 (GRB-67-09). The experts from China, France, Germany, OICA and WBU commented on the proposal. The secretariat pointed out that it had already rectified the text of paragraph 6.2.6. which had been incorrectly reproduced in a revised consolidated version published on the WP.29 website (E/ECE/324/Rev.2/Add.137/Rev.1 − E/ECE/TRANS/505/Rev.2/Add.137/Rev.1). GRB invited OICA to take into account the comments received and to prepare an official document for consideration at the next session. GRB also requested that the earlier OICA proposals for transitional provisions (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRB/2017/7) be included into this new document.
