Proposal to separate requirements for vehicle immobilizers into a new UN Regulation (from UN R116) in order to facilitate the inclusion of anti-theft regulations in UN R0 on whole vehicle type approvals.
39. The expert from OICA, in his capacity of GRSG Ambassador to the IWG on the International Whole Vehicle Type Approval (IWVTA), informed GRSG about the splitting of UN Regulation No. 116. He recalled the purposes of (a) ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/23 which contains the prescriptions for devices against un-authorized use as an amendment to UN Regulation No. 116, (b) ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/24 as a new draft UN Regulation on vehicle immobilizers and (c) ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/25 as a new draft UN Regulation on vehicle alarm systems. After detailed consideration of GRSG-114-28 (superseding ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/24), GRSG agreed to adopt the three separate UN Regulations at the same time. The secretariat was requested to circulate GRSG-114-28 as a revision to the official document for consideration at the October 2018 session of GRSG.
