14. The expert from India preferred to present GRSG-114-20 under item 4.(b) below.

15. The expert from Finland introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2018/7 on the installation of the laminated-glass panes with improved mechanical properties on vehicles. The expert from Poland introduced GRSG-114-04 that proposed to align the new requirements with the general structure of the Regulation. The expert from India suggested using the same terminology as in the Regulation (GRSG-114-20). GRSG noted a general preference for the optional use of the new provisions and a preference to submit them to the World Forum as a Supplement. GRSG adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2018/7 in reference to GRSG-114-23-Rev.1, as reproduced in Annex IV to the session report. The secretariat was requested to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 as draft Supplement 8 to the 01 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 43 for consideration at their November 2018 sessions.

16. GRSG recalled the purpose of GRSG-114-20 to align UN GTR No. 6 on safety glazing and invited the expert from India to submit, in due time, an official proposal for consideration by GRSG at its next session. The expert from India volunteered to take over the technical sponsorship of this amendment and to submit, to WP.29 and AC.3 at their June 2018 sessions, an official request for authorization to amend UN GTR No. 6.
