UN R55: Draft proposal for a new supplement to the 01 series of amendments
Document GRRF-86-34
15 February 2018

Annex 1 of UN R55 concerns the type approval communication form. Item 9.3. requires information “For Class A mechanical coupling devices or components, including towing brackets”. Poland proposes to add “if fitted” to the description in order to avoid interpretations that brackets must be part of the approval (i.e., the approval may concern the coupling ball without additional attachments).
