Discussions and Outcomes
2nd GRVA session (28 Jan-1 Feb 2019)

47. The expert from Australia introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRVA/2019/6 addressing the concern expressed during the 175th WP.29 session. GRVA adopted the proposal as amended (GRVA-02-30) and reproduced in Annex IV. GRVA requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 as draft Supplement 3 to UN Regulation No. 140 for consideration and vote at their June 2019 sessions.

1st GRVA session (25-28 Sep 2018)

45. The secretariat recalled the context of WP.29-175-05 (and WP.29-175-04). The expert from OICA introduced the documents. The expert from the Russian Federation recommended referring to “Vehicle Type” instead of Vehicle in both documents. The expert from Australia agreed to prepare two revised documents for consideration at the next session of GRVA.

83. The World Forum considered the draft amendments under agenda items 4.8.1 to 4.8.9 and recommended their submission to AC.1 for voting, subject to the following corrections:

In ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2018/53, page 2: for “Supplement 15” read “Supplement 16”,
In ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2018/59/Add.1, correct to read:
Insert the missing amendment to former paragraph 3.2.10, to read:

"3.2.11.An indication, by means of the “PSI” index (as explained in Annex 7, Appendix 2 to this Regulation) or in kilopascals (kPa), of the inflation pressure to be adopted for the load/speed endurance tests. This indication may be placed on one sidewall only."

Annex 7, paragraph 1.3., amend to read:
“1.3.Inflate the tyre to the pressure corresponding to the indication on the sidewall as specified in paragraph 3.2.11. of this Regulation.”

84. WP.29 referred informal documents WP.29-175-04 and WP.29-175-05 to the appropriate GR for further consideration.
